Yannick Amirault and Jean-Pierre Chevallier@RSJ Restaurant Tuesday 13th April

Jean-Pierre Chevallier (Château de Villeneuve)

I'm delighted that two of my favourite Loire producers – Yannick Amirault (Bourgueil and Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil) and Jean-Pierre Chevallier (Saumur-Champigny and Saumur) – will be presenting their wines at the RSJ on Tuesday 13th April. Both Yannick and Jean-Pierre are meticulous producers and this is shown by the consistent quality of their wines year in year out.

Some of the details of the format of the evening are yet to be decided but it may well be that there will be a walk around tasting followed by dinner with a few wines selected by Yannick and Jean-Pierre to go with the meal. Cost of the event is £45.

To reserve you place please contact Tom King on 020-7928 4554 or
RSJ Restaurant, 33 Coin Street, London SE1

The RSJ Restaurant celebrates its 30th birthday this year and this is one of a series of producer events to celebrate the anniversary. I have been a consultant to the RSJ since 1989/1990.

Now that is an evening I wish I could attend. We are so near yet so far from London that we might as well be on another planet in terms of realistic travelling. We love those wines. Hope you have a great evening.
