Special Note: if you cannot make this tasting at 6:30pm,
Jacques will be working the floor afterwards at Terroir, as guest sommelier from 8:00pm – 11:00pm.
He will be talking wine in general, Burgundy and Oregon in particular, and will have a completely new set of wines to discuss / pour. If you were ever curious about the wonders of the Pinot Noir grape,
there is no better opportunity to interact with an individual whose life force (the light & the dark!) is Pinot Noir itself.
*And who is this Jacques Lardiere?
Jacques is not a winemaker…he is a communicator. Or better yet, a facilitator.
Few people have been better able to understand the vineyards of the Burgundy region than Jacques.
And he interacts with them in a manner that is the envy of all social scientists.
In fact, he does as little as one possibly can to physically interact with them.
He understands the power of the earth, and that this power is concentrated in certain places,
generally near fault lines in the tectonic plates beneath our feet, or in areas of volcanic activity.
By planting a vine in an area such as this—Burgundy is the result of a massive upheaval of the Africa plate that pushed up the granite bedrock to create the Mont Blanc Range and the Massif Central—
the power / energy is released. The vine acts as a perfect medium for this movement.
In Burgundy, the Grand Cru vineyards are located perfectly along this fault line / this place of absolute power. Winemaking is not required to express this so-called minerality;
these wines possess a life-force which only requires time and patience to be revealed.
The further away from these Grand Cru vineyards one is, the more effort is required to access this minerality.
This effort is called winemaking.
And Jacques is the master liberator of this minerality. Can you dig it!
