The Jura, that high altitude slice of France nestled between Burgundy and the Swiss Border is the world's hottest new wine region. Sommeliers from Paris to New York to Hong Kong have been preaching the wonders of these food friendly, mouth watering wines.
At this meetup we will see what all the fuss is about. We will taste these wines for ourselves and then we will judge whether or not these wines live up to the hype.
Since Jura wines may be bit of a hassle to find, I will bring at least 6 bottles for us all to taste. So don't worry if you can't find a bottle from the Jura. There will be plenty there, so just come and taste for yourself the wines that world's best Sommeliers are raving about.
Most of the wine shops around town should have a bottle or 2 from the Jura, but the best selection should be found at Vinopolis.
$5 if you bring a bottle, $10 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner, (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting
Meat and exotic cheese plates provided.
Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got to taste at least 10 wines, and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.
Once again, whoever brings the best wine (Blind rated), will take home the pot. If we get 10 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50, Last week the winner took home $95.
We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.
Think you know the Jura? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.
Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.
So, Bring a bottle, throw in $5 to the pot or $10 to just come and taste.
