Enter a Blind Wine Tasting with Daniel Boulud

On September 25, Daniel Boulud and the sommeliers from each of his New York restaurants will share their favorite wines with 40 guests. Now in its third year, the Detour de France event (from $350 per person) features each sommelier’s favorite classic French-style wine followed by a blind tasting of a second wine, from a different terroir, whose selection was inspired by the first. For instance, a white Burgundy might be followed by a Chardonnay from a different region of France. The tasting will be held over an intimate five-course meal in the private dining room at Daniel restaurant. The menu is still being finalized, but Daniel Johnnes—Boulud’s wine director and the creator of the event—says that it will highlight the most celebrated regions in France: Rhône, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne, and the Loire Valley. Each sommelier will pair a different course, and Johnnes will pair the aperitifs as well as a surprise wine at the end. (212.933.5262, www.danielnyc.com)
