All You Need is a Driver: Dinner for Eight at Etch

Great food, great friends, great wine, great night! This dinner has everything you want… Except a driver!
This lot includes spectacular bottles from the cellar of 2023 Norman M. Lipman award recipients,
Beth and John Huff, paired with an amazing meal for eight at Etch.

As you would expect, your meal starts with bubbly and hors d’oeuvres. You know how much you love champagne – and what’s not to love with a 1985 Dom Pérignon in magnum to kick off the evening?

 

Next up is Chardonnay featuring one of our favorites. Savor the Domaine Gabriel & Paul Jouard Batard-Montrachet from 2009.  This extremely limited, small production wine is produced from a few rows of vines that lie along the lane separating the Batard vineyard from the “Le Montrachet” vineyard. Oh the pedigree!

 

The second course features a rare wine that was bestowed 100 points by Robert Parker! The 1989 Château Haut-Brion may be the second course, but it will be first in your heart. Described by Parker in The Wine Advocate as a “modern day legend”, this red “…is a seamless, majestic classic, and a tribute to [the] phenomenal terroir and its singular characteristics.” Thirsty yet?

 

Your evening ends with two wines that can only be described as ethereal and charming. The 1975 Château d’Yquem will make everything else seem insignificant, an extraordinary treat to say the least. What? Need something with more age? How about a 1948 Taylor Vintage Port. Referred to as one of the greatest Vintage Ports ever made, this is the perfect finish to an already great night of wine.

 

Your party of eight will experience this perfectly paired meal at Etch where you can expect meticulous treatment and an amazing menu. Creator of Etch and award-winning Chef Deb Paquette creates a delightful culinary experience through her attention to flavor and consistency. As longtime supporters of Nashville Wine Auction, they know how to create an experience worthy of these amazing wines.

 

Win this lot, pick your date, and you are set… All you need is a driver!
