The Wines of ULIZ!
Here’s a word about our wine dinner next Tuesday from our friend Murray from Chambers and Chambers which imports the ULIZ Burgundies:
I traveled to Paris for my first time in 2011 and the young Santos Uy owner of Mignon and Papilles was one of my first resources for leads of great quality food and wine. Santos was throwing names out faster than I could write them down, needless to say I was quite impressed. Mostly casual, many inexpensive, enjoyed all the recommendations. So of course if I’m going to help organize a wine dinner in Los Angeles with a hot new small production French winemaker, I best start at Papilles Bistro.
When I heard the buzz around my office about the wines of Antoine Petitprez, how Antoine is one of the new generation of Burgundy winemakers, was responsible for a research program on how the moon effects wines, trades his consultation fees for grapes to make his own wine, uses no chemical products and follows biodynamic farming methods, makes less than 500 and cases is coming to LA for our trade show, ….. first person came to mind for a wine dinner was Santos and his restaurant Papilles Bistro!
The evening will feature a pairing of four “ULIZ” wines with 4 courses prepared by super Chef Tim Carey.
Antoine sells 85% of his wine in France, of which 50% is sold to 1 & 2 star Michelin restaurants. I believe this is going to be one great “Under the Radar” casual wine dinners.
