I had the distinct pleasure of meeting George Levkoff tonight, and got to know the man a little better while seated next to him during dinner at Pierre.
at Caprice last year, where Sebastien and Jeremy paired the 2008 George Hansen Vineyards Pinot Noir with a selection of cheese like Bleu de Termignon and Mont d'Or. I took an immediate liking to the wine, but it had a more lasting impression on Lili. Being the smart businesswoman that she is, she immediately reached out to George and inquired about selling his wines in Asia. So here we are...
There was a trio of amuse bouche:
Les desserts de Pierre Gagnaire - we actually had a small selection today... only 4 instead of the 6 or 8 I'm used to seeing, but that's actually good news given how stuffed I was.
I'm very happy to have made George's acquaintance, and look forward to drinking his wines for years to come.
