Guigal “La La” Luncheon — Celebrating France’s Finest Côte-Rôties- Acker Merrall
12:00pm - 2:00pm
Address will be provided to ticket holders in early May
Ooh-la-la! Join this Acker Merrall excursion into Guigal's "La La's" - La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque. France’s Rhône Valley is internationally renowned for exceptional wines – but the pinnacle of these acclaimed wines is E. Guigal’s Côte-Rôties, also known as the La La’s. La Mouline with its high percentage of Viognier is the most aromatically complex, supple and seductive of all the LaLa’s. La Landonne is an amazingly rich wine with a deep black and purple color, incredibly concentrated, Smokey and exotic. La Turque represents a synthesis in style between La Landonne and La Mouline. It has the concentration of La Landonne with the aromatic complexity of La Mouline. These profound single vineyard wines are among the rarest, most collectible and highly rated wines in the world. In fact Robert Parker once proclaimed, “Guigal’s single vineyard Côte-Rôties are other-worldly in nearly every vintage. I have given these offerings more perfect scores than any other wines in the world,” giving a total of 21 perfect 100-point scores to these three impeccable wines.
This luncheon will feature 12 vintages of the La La’s alongside the exquisite cuisine of Chef Brooke Vosika, formerly of the Four Seasons Boston.
