VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, April 3, 2014 – On April 29, 2014, MARKET by Jean-Georges will host an unprecedented evening of exquisite food and wine. A host from Château Margaux in the Bordeaux region of France together with MARKET Chef de Cuisine Montgomery Lau, have partnered together to showcase some of the house’s rarest and most admirable wines.
Aurélien Valance, Senior VP Commercial Director of Château Margaux, will be on hand throughout the evening to offer his consummate insight and depth of knowledge about wine. The seven-course dinner will feature the 1985, 1989, 1990 and 1996 vintages of the Grand Vin alongside the esteemed Pavillon Blanc 2011 and Pavillon Rouge 2004. The highlight of the evening however will be the 1983 vintage of the Chateau Margaux, hailed as one of the finest vintages from the last century. Recognized for its quality since the 18th century and world renowned for its seductive silkiness, subtlety and finesse, Château Margaux represents the pinnacle of winemaking achievement.
