New Orleans, LA

« Back to the list


Featured Wine
L. Aubry Fils 2005 Le Nombre d’Or Campaniae Brut (Champagne)

“This wine was made with all seven legal Champagne grapes: Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Petit Meslier, Pinot Noir, Arbanne, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay,” says White.

The Wine Program
Chef John Besh’s elegant Creole eatery offers 22 dry wines by the glass, including sparkling selections, 52 sweet wines by the glass and 410 options by the bottle. The program leans French since “it’s part of the city’s heritage and pairs well with Chef Besh’s contemporary French cuisine and our local New Orleans ingredients,” says Erin White, the sommelier. “Each grape has a spiritual center, a place where Mother Nature loves this particular grape. I look there.”

Favorite Dish
Foie Gras Three Ways: Foie gras mousse with pickled chanterelle and pear; Baumkuchen (layered sponge cake) around cured foie gras with a Champagne gelée and balsamic reduction of balsamic; a terrine of cured foie gras with pheasant and an apple marmalade, paired with Château Laribotte’s 2008 Sauternes from Bordeaux.

Corkage Policy
There’s no corkage fee.
