Seattle Offline - January 18, 2020

#1 Post by J Diven » December 1st, 2019, 3:58 pm

UPDATE: January 18

Okay, we have settled on Saturday January 18th. Start time 6:00PM - Sharp if possible! Feel free to stop in a few minutes early.
Theme is 'Loire'.

That said, no good Champagne will be turned away.
Several of you have said you have little Loire Red - so no good burgundy will be turned away [cheers.gif]
I have a reasonable assortment of reds including some decently aged Chinon and Bourgueil
(Mind you I have NO Clos Rougeard, sorry)
Other geographical wines made from Cab Franc, pinot, gamay, or Cot could make for comparisons?

Attendees: 17

Jim & Yvette (as host, not in count)
Peter - Sancerre + Moulin Touchais Coteaux du Layon
Mark + 1 - Huet Moelleux 1er Trie, a white burgundy
Ryan - 1989 Olga Raffault Les Picasses
Hal - 1989 Couly-Dutheil Clos de l'Olive, 1990 Baumard Quarts de Chaume
Scott & Sheela - 2010 Olga Raffault La Singuliere, 2014 Pepiere Clos de Briords
Terrance - Savennières
Geoff + 1 - (89/95/03) C et P Breton Les Perrières
Del - Olga Raffault, possibly some Bourgueil as well
Pierre-Yves + 1 - 1989 Luneau Papin L d'Or, 1990 Couly-Dutheil
Bryan & Lauren
Eric W

Wait List :

Dave Sun's guest

Food:
Terrance - crab cakes
Ryan - carrots
Scott - bread and dips (hummus)
Pierre-Yves - gratin?
Geoff - lamb sandwich
Hal - cassoulet
Mark - baguette and pate
Jim - Bo Ssam w scallion ginger sauce (skipping the Kimchi, and Korean sauce parts unless people want them)
Yvette - polenta cakes w tapanade and dried tomatoes (vegan)

-------------------------------
Original Post:

In the discussion of and during our October event, I agreed to host a January Event.
Now that it is December it's time to start the discussion and get this firmed up.

I think our best choice of dates will be Saturday 1/11 or Saturday 1/18.
Sunday 1/12 or 1/19 is a possibility as well I suppose, but we have tended to land on Saturdays in the past.
I would also be open to Saturday 1/4, but think the first weekend following the holiday is probably unlikely.
Unfortunately the last weekend in January is out for us.

I live in the Sunset Hill area of Ballard, so on the far westside of town, not far from Ray's, etc.

So post your preference and we will sort out the date and attendance as a starting point.
Theme feedback would be welcome too.
Some have suggested 'Loire' which, of course is about as specific as saying, 'California'.
But we do not have to be too specific unless people really want to be.

I'll be at Whistler the weekend of the 11th.
I've got plenty of Loire whites, only a weak selection of reds.

Either works for me, with a slight preference to the 18th. Theme is good, although I have very little in my cellar... I may need to do some shopping!

I am available both weekends but think it would be great to have the off-line on the 18th or 19th so Peter can attend. I like the Loire theme. I'll bring a 1990 Baumard Quarts de Chaume and another white or red bottle depending on what we need.

Cheers,

Hal

Thanks for putting this together Jim! The 18th works for me, and I agree with Hal, it would be great to have Peter there.

What a fabulous idea for Loire. :D

Either works for us. Loire is a fun region. Looking forward to this.

I'll be bringing my wife again.

We can bring a three year vertical of Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Les Perrières (89/95/03). Could be fun to have even more vintages if people have them in their cellar.

I’ll bring a +1 (Sheela).

Can bring a 2010 Olga Raffault Les Singulares Cab Franc and a Mag of 2014 Pepiere Briords. May try to track down some sparkling Chenin, which can be quite nice.

Hi All, please add me if you have space.
I can bring 3 or 4 reds north and south bank,including one or two Olga R Picasses from a while ago.
I do not have any red Sancerre but If anybody has one or two they would be a great addition.
Another berserker from Queen Anne Dave Sun might join in, think he likes some Loire.

For anyone looking to procure Loire Cab Franc, Rain City Wine in Bothell usually has a good selection, including on occasion library releases. Ditto for Vinopolis and Sec in Portland.

We are getting crowded, so I have wait listed you for now, but I imagine that you will get in fairly shortly.

No problem I have added Carol.

I think I agree, but we should clarify 'Flights'.
I don't have the room, or glasses to do formal flights. But if, as I think you mean, we group the wines 3, 4, or 5 at a time and stage them to the crowd so most folks can get a shot at a small pour, I would agree. So for example for whites, I am imaging we will have a Muscadet group, a dry Chenin grouping, possibly a Sauvignon grouping and maybe a few Demi/aged Moelleux Chenin wines. I that what you are thinking as well?

For glasses, be aware I have enough for everybody to get ONE decent machine made bordeaux, burgundy, or variant stem, with some probably lesser quality extras for folks who want a second glass. I strongly encourage you to bring 1 or 2, or more versatile glasses of your choosing.
Jim

By "flights" I meant grouping similar wines, and drinking from the groups in a logical order; usually from lightest to richest. That could put off-dry whites after reds.
I didn't mean everyone sitting down at once with a set of glassware. That takes a lot of room as well as stemware. We talked about having flights the last time, and I feel I should have insisted, as it turned into a bit of a scrum.

This sounds like a fun event. Could you please add me (1) on the wait list below Bryan and Lauren?

I have some options and could bring either a Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, or perhaps Cab Franc.

Gents,

The kids' soccer and basketball scheduling bastards have struck again. Four soccer/basketball games Saturday and three Sunday. Moral of the story is do not let your two daughters play both AAU basketball and Premier soccer at the same time! Last time I miss my absolute favorite region, the Northern Rhone and now I'm missing my third favorite. I'm sure the wine gods will make sure I'm available for the "Recently Released Napa Valley Over-Oaked Cab Night!"

Enjoy the wines and more importantly, the company.

Thanks Jared, we’ll catch up one of these days. Can’t help much with the Napa cab but open to N Rhône anytime.

Okay so we are less than 2 weeks out and we have a waitlist, so please do let us know if you need to drop.
Del, you had a tentative guest - Dave - can you confirm him?

I will start a food list in the 1st post. Food contributions welcome.
I’ll do a big pot of something - no idea what yet - but it won’t be vege and probably won’t appeal to everyone.

Hi Jim,

Sorry for being absent in this thread. Confirming on my own behalf. I have a friend who is also interested in coming, and has a sizable cellar to pull from. Given the wait list though, I do understand if he must get in line.

So just a reminder - do let me know if you cannot make it - we have a large number of attendees and a wait list.
And, please do let us know what if any food you will be bringing.

Also - I have been meaning to let people know - we do have a dog.
She is short haired and does not shed a lot, and we will try to keep her mainly out of the fray.
But is you have a severe allergy, or a concern about animals, please be aware.

I thought the Lamb Sandwich was pretty tasty actually. And easy to eat in a milling around event, but up to you.
We do have a fairly large dining table, and two living room areas on our main level, but people tend to mill around the kitchen counters. We will probably start the event up on our top floor this time, and then work our way down for later flights, larger food.

Pierre-Yves as we've been corresponding in PM, the 1989 L d'Or would be fantastic. I have a 1997 and some 'middle aged' vintages (05, 07, 09) we could open as well.

That combined with Olga Raffault Les Picasses - I also have 1989 as a backup, as well as 02, 05, 07, 10 to augment Del, and maybe matching the 2010 Les Singulares with 2010 Les Picasses, we have the opportunity for some pretty interesting verticals, comparisons, etc.

But we do have a large number of attendees, so people are going to have to live with pretty small pours.
And unfortunately it does not seem like the waitlist is going to get in unless we have cancels.

My wife is suffering burnout from having to socialize too long with visiting relatives, and would like to yield her seat to someone on the waiting list.

I'll also be bringing a Moulin Touchais Coteaux du Layon.

Okay, i've updated food and tentative wines on the 1st post.
For people warning of having few reds, this is shaping up to be quite an interesting aged cabernet franc event.
I can certainly augment the sauvignon, dry chenin, and melon categories as needed.
I have Foreau and Huet demi sec, and still some 85 Huet Moelleux which drinks pretty much like a demi at this point.
It looks like we are pretty well covered for sweeties at this point. I do have more if they go quickly.

Okay, with Carol being out, I also adjusted the count down by one for my wife who will not really be drinking much of anything.
So as a result I have added Bryan and Lauren off the wait list and they have confirmed.
Unfortunately as the event is tomorrow, it does not look like we will be able to add the last two folks off the wait list.
Sorry, but we are already down to likely 1.5 ounce pours for many of the wines.

Thanks for all the organizing Jim. Do you have an idea on the setup? Flights? Stations? Do you need any help prepping anything? I’m available if so.

Cheers

Thanks for the update, Jim. As next up on the wait list, I'll check again later tonight and/or first thing in the morning just in case anyone else bows out.

No worries if that doesn't happen, as I know it's a big group and, like you said, the event is nigh upon us. I wish you all good drinking and fun - and I'll be interested in seeing folks' notes after the event.
