Thanks to my week of painful gastritis, I managed to cancel a few dinners with friends - including someone I hadn't seen for a couple of months. When we decided to reschedule our meeting, we figured we should go back to my favorite private dining space. As we began thinking about who else to grab for this dinner, it seemed like a good idea to invite our friends who had worked with us at the German sausage factory. It gave us a chance to catch up with everyone.
After taking a couple of requests, I added a couple of my favorite dishes, and arrange the menu with the chef. Some of us have not had the chance to dine here, so anticipation was high.
Agrapart Terroirs, mis en bouteille Mai 2012, dégorgée en Aout 2015 - an extra brut blanc de blancs that was very easy to drink. Well-balanced acidity with a nice mousse. Oaky and a little pungent.
Agrapart Complantée, mis en bouteille Mai 2012, dégorgée en Aout 2015 - richer, deeper flavors, with a longer finish, and a little more acidity.
