Please join us this week at Bar Boulud as we open some very large bottles of rosé, including a few 15-Liter Nebuchadnezzars of AIX from Provence, as well as some delicious Magnums of Stein’s Trocken Rosé from the Mosel in Germany.
Spring will quickly become summer, and we are prepared, with delicious rosé poured in very large format. AIX comes from Southern France, from Provence, and is delicious with our late spring menu. The bottle, which is 15-Liters, holds 20 “normal” bottles of wine, and is named after the ancient king of Babylon, and not named after Morpheus’s hovership in The Matrix (thank you Jeff Jeswald of Flatiron Wines for that particular fact-check).
We will also open Stein’s Trocken Rosé in Magnum, we will have just 24 Magnums for the whole summer, and the sommelier team is very excited for this one. With a more red-fruited and vinous tone than the AIX, it offers an interesting foil to classic Provençal, which we are pouring from 15-Liter.
So please come down, enjoy the weather and a glass of rosé outside on our terrace!
