Chef Statement – Liz Grenamyer
“I’ve always fallen for Degas paintings because of the fabulous light. I envision him with fellow artists in the Saint Germain district of Paris sharing a meal at one of the many brasseries and bistros. Coq au vin is a very traditional and iconic dish found in these eateries of Paris and typifies what ‘starving’ artists might enjoy.”

Pair it with: 2013 Lamadrid Cabernet Franc Agrelo, Mendoza
lamadrid 2013Grapes: 100% La Suiza vineyard.
Description: Varietally expressive aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice pastille and mint, complemented by sweet oak. Spicy and intense, with an enticing touch of sweetness to its flavors of blackberry, spices and flowers. Pliant, supple wine with very good vinosity, building tannins and mounting length. The Lamadrid winery is owned by Guillermo García Lamadrid, and the winemaker, president, and co-owner is Héctor Durigutti. Lamadrid owns three vineyards in Agrelo: Finca La Matilde (planted 1929), Finca Lamadrid (planted 1973), and Finca La Suiza (planted 2004). Each wine comes from one of these Agrelo single vineyards and only indigenous yeasts are used, with no filtration. The winery combines a unique mix of traditional and cutting-edge winemaking. The district of Agrelo, in the department of Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, is called “the land of the Malbec.” This is one of the oldest and most premier growing regions in Argentina. Lamadrid strives to represent the best expression of the beautiful terroir of Agrelo.
