Description

If you missed out on our France vs USA wine dinner here is your chance to find your favorite style!

Reminiscent of the 1976 Judgement of Paris where California was put to the test against French wines for the first time with the whole world watching, Foxcroft has paired up one French and one American wine in two different varieties for you to appreciate the character differences. Stylistically French wines shows more earthy notes and are made to be enjoyed with food while American wines are more fruit driven and bold. We have chosen the following wines as they are perfect examples of the wines that are produced in their respective region and country.

 

Chardonnay

Domaine Dutron Pouilly-Fuissé (Bourgundy, France)
Crisp and clean with complex notes of nuts, citrus, brioche and honey

vs.

Violin Chardonnay (Willamette Valley, Oregon)
Wet stones, crushed orchard fruit and orange blossom on the nose. Round and creamy on the palate.

 

Merlot

Château Tayet (Bordeaux, France)
Full- bodied with notes of plum, cedar spice, vanilla and ripe tannins with a long earthy finish

vs.

Airfield Merlot (Yakima Valley, California)
Aromas of sweet cassis, toasted cedar, and dark espresso evolving into more complex aromas of licorice and baking spices. Sweet oak with sweet plum, fig and caramel.
