Last week, I attended the Chablis Dinner at The Bouley Test Kitchen. It was a fabulous evening, full of great wine, plates, and company! Winemakers Christian Moreau and Jean-Marc Brocard were in attendance and my favorite pours of the night were Chablis 1er cru Vaillons 2009 Christian Moreau Pere et Fils, and Chablis Grand Cru Preuses 2007 Domaine Nathalie et Gilles Fevre, which is all about mica, and was served with Organic Connecticut Farm Egg with Comté Foam, Polenta and Carrot Powder. Divine!
