Late September Dinner with Sommeliers

Dinner last night celebrated some great accomplishments on behalf of a bunch of outstanding sommeliers in DC.  A good friend of 1508 and wine enthusiast scheduled a dinner to celebrate his friends recent successes–  one just became a Master Sommelier, another guest just passed an exam which  qualifies them to sit for the Master Sommelier test in the future and yet another  recently won a sommelier competition in NYC…

The guests were a pleasure and came with wine.  As you can imagine the wine was plentiful and amazing.  A few standouts were 3 magnums:

Henriot, Champagne, Millesime, 1996

Domaine de la Mordoree, Chateauneuf-Du-Paupe, 2003

Chateau Cos D’Estournel, Saint-Estephe, 1986

We cooked the first pumpkin of the season, enjoyed  pacific chanterelles, pigs tongue and lamb from Eco Friendly Foods and vegetables from our garden at 1508 and the Farm at Walker Jones.
