Maybe you have a tax return coming your way. Or you don’t want to think about your taxes and would rather forget all about it and drink good wine over a posh dinner. Either way, this Thursday April 15th, chef Hubert Keller and the team at ~FLEUR DE LYS~ will be hosting a dinner with the wines of Hyde de Villaine, the partnership between veteran California farmer, Larry Hyde, and legendary Domaine de la Romanée Conti partner, Aubert de Villaine. The two began a partnership after Aubert married Larry’s “belle cousine,” Pamela. The Hyde de Villaine wines speak of impeccable Carneros farming practices and classic winemaking on the part of Frenchman Stéphane Vivier. Larry, Aubert, and Stéphane will all be in attendance on this evening. Wines to be poured during the multi-course dinner are: Hyde de Villaine ”De La Guerra” Chardonnay 2007, Hyde de Villaine Chardonnay 2007, Hyde de Villaine Syrah 2006, Hyde de Villaine Syrah 2004, Hyde de Villaine “Belle Cousine” 2006, and Hyde de Villaine ”Belle Cousine” 2004.
