Campy evening

Too many glasses

Too many glasses

Bon jour

The evening began with our host stating, “Welcome to Burgundy.” But it didn’t look like France; I was clearly overlooking the dense haze of Victoria Harbour, high from the top of the Peak. But I am firm believer in the “suspension of display” so I took Pierre’s welcome and followed him through a five course dinner that included eight wine pairings.

All of the wines are from Maison Champy. The remarkable thing was the diversity that each wine brought to the conservation. Whites and reds combined to make a special evening. I cannot remember ever attending such an event. My initial thought was, “this is too much wine.” But I did my best to push through for the sake of science and adventure.
