Origin : Northern Rhône Valley, AOC Saint-Joseph

The mature, 45 year old vines used to produce “La Dame Brune” are planted on granite hillsides in the Saint Joseph appellation. Their maturity gives the wine an exemplary level of minerality. In its youth it has smoothness and a remarkable structure. However it is a wine well suited to aging for several years.

“La Dame Brune” ‘The Dark Lady’ takes her name in reference to the estates owner and wine maker, Christine Vernay who created this cuvée upon her arrival at the helm of the estate.

La Dame Brune St Josep (91 points Parker)

From very old vines around the village of Chavanay, and aged two years in barrels (30% new), the 2014 Saint Joseph La Dame Brune shas a deep ruby color as well as a terrific nose of black raspberries, blackberries, hints of barrique and cured meats.

Taking over the estate from her father in 1997, Christine Vernay consistently produces one of the finest lineups of Condrieu in every vintage.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly
Whate is essential is invisible to the eye”

Born in 1943 in New York , The Little Prince is a worldwide Publishing Phenomenon.
The Little Prince is a philosophical tale, with humanist values, shared from one generation to another for more than 75 years. Creating bonds between generations, men and continents.

In the middle of the Sahara Desert, a stranded aviator meets the Little Prince, a young boy from a small, far away asteroid, and a dreamlike journey unfolds across a universe. A rose, a sheep, and an array of unusual adults on their own small planets.
This classic novel written by french writter, poet and pioneering aviator, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, reminds us of the power of innocence and boundless love.

The Chef Pénélope Barboza (former chef of Tokyo Argentinia Embassy and now Chef at ANA Continental Hotel) will elaborate a 3 courses dinner full of surprises and inspired by this treasured tale.
