Georges Duboeuf 2011 Beaujolais Crus Preview

A few times each year I have the opportunity to attend and photograph wine events and meet some legendary wine makers, and this past June Georges Duboeuf and his son and co-proprietor Franck with their importer Peter Deutsch hosted a media/trade preview of the 2011 Beaujolais Crus at db Bistro Moderne in NYC.

As much as getting to try some truly fantastic wines, I was really looking forward to going to a top shelf NYC restaurant—db Bistro Moderne, owned by the renowned Daniel Boulud, with the food prepared by executive chef Laurent Kalkotour. I had the chance to sneak into the kitchen for a few shots as he and his staff plated the 4 course meal.
