Burgundy Wine Dinner at Aroma Thyme Bistro

Burgundy and wine, a match made a thousand years ago.

Burgundy-- the name has taken on the proportions of myth. This is the region where the modern wine world began. It’s also the home of a cuisine notable for
hearty winter meals.

Say Chardonnay, say Pinot Noir, and you are talking Burgundy, because that’s where those two varietals began their march across the world.
Indeed, go back 40 years or so and the only Chardonnay you were likely to find in a wine store would have come from Burgundy. Certainly, the only Pinot Noir in the
shop would have had to have come from Burgundy’s Cote D’Or, the fabulous slope of gold, along which are scattered the famous villages and vineyards-- such as Gevry Chambertin, whose wines have inspired winemakers the world over.

On Friday, February 29th, Aroma Thyme Bistro, in Ellenville, will celebrate
Burgundy and Burgundian cuisine with a special wine dinner, matching Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from both Burgundy and elsewhere to a menu of traditional Burgundian food.

The Five course menu paired with seven wines is $85 per person. This event is paired with wines selected by Sommelier Chris Rowley and food paired by Chef Marcus Guiliano. Seating is limited to 12. Call 647-3000 early to reserve your space. More info can be found at www.AromaThymeBistro.com.
