NEW YORK, JANUARY 30, 2024 – New Yorkers seeking to soak up the most exquisite wines and immerse themselves into French culture need go no further than the February and March slate of lavish wine dinners and tastings, curated by Pressoir—the team behind the premier French wine festivals La PauléeLa Tablée, and La Fête Du Champagne.. Tickets are now available for both the February and March wine experiences, consisting of unique pop-up dinners and walk-around tastings, each providing access to wines from rarefied collections and cellars paired with the cuisine of New York’s finest restaurants.

February and March’s Pressoir events are a precursor of what’s to come during the acclaimed La Paulée festival, the world’s premier celebration of Burgundy wines, taking place this February 22-23 and March 6 in New York City, and February 27-March 2 in Los Angeles.

With a passionate mission to transport guests to the vibrant regions of France’s most distinguished wineries, the team behind Pressoir believes that unforgettable experiences happen when the best wines from the finest estates and most talented winemakers are brought together with a dedicated community of wine enthusiasts in a setting infused with generous spirit. With this mission in mind, Pressoir has curated exclusive dinners and tastings that showcase acclaimed wineries and New York’s award-winning restaurants.

FEBRUARY EVENTS

PRESSOIR SESSION: CHARTOGNE TAILLET

Wednesday, February 7, 6:00-7:30pm

Alexandre Chartogne took the reins of his family’s Champagne domaine in 2006 and immediately became a name to follow for high quality wines, expertly crafted. Located in the small village of Merfy in the petite Montagne de Reims, Alex, who once worked alongside legendary winemaker Anselme Selosse, is himself a great source of inspiration for other vignerons in the region. His work is simply fascinating, and with about a dozen different Champagne cuvées, Alex manages to produce alluring wines with distinct profiles and real personalities. This session will give you the opportunity to taste some of his rare cuvées accompanied by a detailed presentation of his estate and philosophy.

Location: Pressoir Tasting Room & Clubhouse | 285 West Broadway, New York

LA PAULÉE DINNER: DOMAINE LEFLAIVE

Thursday, February 8, 6:30-9:30pm

Tasting a wine from Domaine Leflaive is always a special moment. But getting the opportunity to drink thirteen pristine bottles of the famed Puligny-Montrachet producer is simply unforgettable. The Pressoir team has carefully curated extremely rare wines that include among other wines a deep five-vintage vertical of the famed “Les Pucelles” back to 1989. They will then be serving four vintages of Chevalier Montrachet back to 1983, all from Domaine Leflaive.

MARCH EVENTS

PRESSOIR APÉRO: POMMARD

Tuesday, March 12, 6:00-7:30pm

The Côte de Beaune of Burgundy is certainly known for the superior white wines it produces but one should not overlook the excellent Pinot Noir grown in that area, especially in Pommard, a village that is just south of Beaune. Join Pressoir for an incredible Apéro focused on the superb wines of Pommard from reputable producers such as de Montille or Pierre Morey and wines from the best sites such as premier cru Rugiens, including a vertical back to the 1990 vintage!

Location: Pressoir Tasting Room & Clubhouse | 285 West Broadway, New York

Cost: $150 (+ tax)

PRESSOIR DINNER: CÔTE-RÔTIE

Thursday, March 21, 6:30-9:30pm

Translated to “the roasted slope”, the Côte Rôtie appellation bathes in sunlight and gives its aficionados some of the most intriguing Syrah. Once almost abandoned because of its harsh working conditions, the incredibly steep vineyards of Côte Rôtie offer a scenic sight as dramatic and poignant as the wines themselves. Guests will explore the many facets of Côte-Rôtie at this superb dinner featuring wines from the best producers such as the historic Clusel-Roch, Patrick Jasmin and the unforgettable cuvées from Guigal, affectionately known as the Lala’s, back to the 1980’s.

Location: Hearth | 403 East 12th Street, New York

Cost: $850 (+ tax)

$795 for Pressoir Club Members

Tickets can be purchased here
