Vintner Event – Beaujolais Tasting at Le Bon Funk

Marc Delienne and Mee Godard Private Tasting2

Our Beaujolais wine dinner has been fully subscribed so WEA decided to do one more event – because you guys requested it!!!

Domaine Mee Godard, Korean descent but adopted as a baby to France, started her first vintage in 2013 and in no time has garnered huge ratings and admiration for her wines. She works with organic methods in Morgon and will present a horizontal of her 2016 vintage from Grand Cras to Cote du Py to her special Passerelle 577!

Marc Delienne, was a Fintech boss but the allure of a life in the vines made him sell the company and started making wines from the 2015 vintage. Wines are organic and biodynamic and made with low amount of sulfur. Based in Fleurie, he will present his new cuvee from St Amour along with a mini-vertical

TWO Star Winegrowers in ONE Dinner – Mee Godard & Marc Delienne!

Wine Dinner.jpeg

BOOMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!! As the leader of championing Beaujolais here, it’s high time WEA bring Beaujolais here to you. Two of our biggest and best-selling Bojo growers will be here for a ONE NIGHT ONLY dinner with their TOP CUVEES!!!

Domaine Mee Godard, Korean descent but adopted as a baby to France, started her first vintage in 2013 and in no time has garnered huge ratings and admiration for her wines. She is based in Morgon and will present a vertical of her special cuvee Morgon Passerelle 577 – a special parcel of vines in the Cote du Py climat. Very rare vertical especially from her first vintage onwards!

“Simply a must-have domaine if your tastes even vaguely resemble mine – I would take anything here!” – Bill Nanson, Burgundy Report.

Marc Delienne, was a Fintech boss but the allure of a life in the vines made him sell the company and started making wines from the 2015 vintage. Wines are organic and biodynamic and made with low amount of sulfur. Based in Fleurie, he will present a vertical of his top cuvee Abbaye Road and the Singapore premiere of his new special cuvee bottled only in magnum – Vigne des Fous from the steepest slope of Fleurie. Oh we will also start with his rare Beaujolais Rose as an aperitif.

“He produced his inaugural vintage in 2015, and his two cuvées are very impressive indeed.” – William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

This time round we are hosting the dinner with our partner Cicheti. The term Cicheti fosters the idea of traditional everyday impromptu meals into an inviting ‘high-street-food’ concept to reflect the mouthwatering diversity of Italy’s foodscape. The chef will be coming out with a special menu to pair specially with these exquisite Beaujolais wines.

We will be presenting EIGHT different Beaujolais wines from the two growers and all of them are special top cuvees. This is a very rare chance to try some of these wines, especially the older vintages which come directly from Domaine. This is the chance for you to understand and be awed by how great Bojo is now.

Only 15 seats available, RSVP to info@weawines.com.sg!

Price: $168 nett per pax (pre-payment required)
Date: 5 Dec 2018 (Wednesday)
Time: 7pm (Happy Hour Rose start flowing at 6.30pm)
Location: Cicheti (2nd Floor), 52 Kandahar Street, S(198901).

Champagne Savart New Release Allocation

Tasting with Frederic Savart in his Domaine in the little hamlet of Ecueil is nothing short of breathtaking. WEA always start with tasting the vin clairs and then the new releases (and some rarities).

Papa Daniel often makes a guest appearance too.There will be several upcoming cuvees from the new negoce arm which will only see the light of the day in a few year’s time. The duo 2014 vintage cuvees of Le Mont Benoit (finally available in mags) and Le Mont des Chretiens (finally available in bots) are truly exceptional this year, with slightly more quantities to fulfill everyone’s needs. The wines are engaging and vinous, and absolutely charming with the right balance of linearity and generosity. Oh and a 2008 tasted blind was such a delight, showing hints of secondary evolution and complexity. This year’s release will also include some late disgorged jeroboams of 2010 L’Annee (the first jeros I’ve seen from the Domaine) and some late disgorgements of 2013 L’Annee. Oh and the celebrated Expression cuvee finally makes a reappearance in the 2014 vintage.

Don’t miss this highly sought-after unicorn. The 2018/19 Singapore allocations are out now and will land soon. Enquire for details!
