December’s Beginnings: Big Bottle Burgundy

We’ve had a great time celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau this past week. I hope everyone had a peaceful and warm holiday, no matter where you found yourself.

That said, it’s not getting any warmer, but I’m trying to stave off the cold with some classic Burgundy. Particularly now that we’ve got a menu split between classics of both 64th Street restaurants, I’d like to keep the Panier malleable.

For most of the week, Jeroboams of elegant, youthful Chambolle Villages from Digioia-Royer. Super aromatic and intensely fresh out of the large format, this should be a serious treat and will deftly handle both the Bar Boulud bistro-style and the Sud Mediterranean style.

For the weekend, wonderful, rustic old-vine Savigny from Pierre Guillemot. It’s sure to be great with anything, particularly the Boeuf.

Hope all is well, and stay warm out there!
