Paul Jaboulet Aine 2009 Rhone Dinner

Paul Jaboulet Aîné 2009 Vintage Release Celebration Dinner

Being touted as a “once in a lifetime, unique tasting”, I am so pleased and proud to bring these wines to you.  The 2009 vintage is being considered as one of the best vintages in decades from this region.  This release is very special because it presents the re-emergence of Jaboulet as premiere, artisan style winemakers in Northern Rhone.  In 2006 the Frey family acquired Maison Jaboulet, and with a rich history and passion for winemaking themselves, they have rededicated their efforts to making incredible Rhone wines.  This vintage marks the first sole release of winemaker Caroline Frey.

This dinner also celebrates the 10th year anniversary of nicks on broadway opening.  It’s sure to be a celebration and a very special evening.
