Please join us on Tuesday, September 29 at Selden Standard for a five-course dinner, reception, and dessert, paired with Jean-François Bourdy‘s exciting wines from the eastern French mountainous region of Jura.
Jura is home to Vin Jaune (literally, yellow wine), one of the rarest of all French wines. Its complex, distinctive flavor comes from a production method that involves leaving the wine in a partially filled wooden barrel for a minimum of six years. We’ll be featuring Bourdy’s 2006 Vin Jaune and 2005 Château-Chalon, the appellation that produces the highest expression of Vin Jaune. And Jean-François is bringing a special treat with him from his extensive library of past vintages.
We’ll also be pouring from the range of Bourdy’s wines, including a sparkling Crémant du Jura, a fortified Macvin du Jura, a white Savagnin, and a red blend of Pinot Noir, Poulsard, and Trousseau. And the event would not be complete without a taste of Bourdy’s Galant des Abbesses – savagnin reduced with 25 Alpine herbs and spices, fortified with Marc de Franche-Comté, and aged in barrel for five years.
Caves Jean Bourdy is one of the oldest domaines in Jura. Certified biodynamic in 2006, they are serious about achieving high quality by meticulous vineyard work. They own 25 acres of vines, with a little over one acre in the renowned Château-Chalon appellation.
Award-winning Chef Andy Hollyday’s menu is ideal for the textures and flavors of Jura wines. Local, seasonal vegetables and meats like rabbit, duck and lamb are all made to order for one of Detroit’s best dining experiences. If you’ve yet to eat at Selden Standard, you’ll soon discover what all the fuss is about.
Seating is very limited. Please call us at 248-398-0030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and to reserve your seat. Reception begins at 6:30 and dinner at 7. Selden Standard is located on the corner of Selden Street and 2nd Avenue in Midtown.
