Autumn at RSJ Restaurant

We have put together the following programme of wine tastings and Italian Sunday lunches for Autumn 2009.

Wine tastings with dinner – 3 courses – start 7.15pm

Monday 21st September ‘The RSJ dinner party’ £55.00
Specially selected wines and menu with discussion around the food and wine – we will be tasting 2005 Chinon Coteau de Noire from Philippe Alliet, 2005 Cuvée d’Antan Sancerre (Henri Bourgeois), 2006 Bourgueil Haute de la Butte (Jacky Blot), 1989 Vouvray Marigny Moelleux from Bernard Fouquet as well as other interesting wines from our archives.

Monday 19th October ‘Anjou’ £50.00
A special look at the historic Anjou region, sited on the lower western extent of the Loire. We will be looking at wines from the top growers in this region including Claude Papin, Christophe Daviau, Vincent Ogereau and Jean-Yves Lebreton.

Monday 23rd November ‘The 2008 Vintage’ £45.00
Reduced yields but producing wines with great maturity and breadth, 2008 can be considered a overall better vintage than 2007, except for sweet wines from the Layon. Why not come along and introduce yourself to the delights of the 2008 vintage and taste some stunning Chinons from Christophe Baudry as well as Jean Tatin’s terrific Quincy, the Champaults' delicious Sancerre and various other delights.

Final wine selections for these events will be posted on both our website and RSJ news blog two weeks before the event.
