A tasting menu with a twist

condita1 | Jan 12, 2012 10:09 AM

A local restaurant March du sud does an off menu tasting night for the people in the know once a month. Everyone brings their own wine. Thats the twist. He does not charge a corkage fee. The only rule is your wine must be pretty decent because everyone shares their wine. Last night was one of those nights. Here is a list of the wines we had last night. We started with pinots American and Australian. Followed by 1984 torcolato, 1970 lynch bages,1995 rennina, 2004 del forno romano,2001 rubicon, 2005 bond, 2 1989 vouvrays, 1997 and 2000 taylors. The food was a house made foie gras with black truffle marmalade, organic asparagus veloute with black truffles, grilled quail, palate cleanser, fresh shot pheasant with linguini, rabbit chausseur, cheese then chocolate mousse. I wanted to bring some attention to it. Last night just 8 of us took all this down. With more people different wines would come that could only be better.
