I'm excited about dining at L'Etoile in Madison, Wi this coming Sat. night. Having already purused the menus on line, I am contemplating making what is for me a wine splurge.
Bouchard Pere et Fil "la vigne l'enfant Jesus" 2001. $88 What do you think? I know "worth it" is a vague and almost unanswerable question, but I hope someone will try.
I expect to eat tenderloin carpaccio and radish salad followed by Walleye w/ parsnip gnocchi, straveccio, and white wine sauce. Of course, the menu (or my mind) could change.
Further, my husband will only drink 1/2 glass, so I will being taking some home. (I contacted the restaurant and apparently WI allows that if recorked to the point that it cannot be opened w/out a corkscrew.) So if this wine will not be special, I'll get a 1/2 bottle of bubbles instead.
