The Oregon chapter of the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin, Sous-Commanderie de Portland held its first event on November 29 at Park Kitchen in downtown Portland.  Chapter member Scott 
Wright of Scott Paul Wines presented "A Graduate Course: Burgundy 501."  We tasted four flights of White and Red Burgundy from Chablis and the Cote d’Or.  The presentation was superb and the food and wines  presented, as well as the wines brought by the members, were delicious (the ’07 Bonneau de Martray Corton Charlemagne was magnificent…thanks Scott!).

It was fun comparing notes on the wines with David Millman of DDO, Shirley Brooks of Elk Cove, Bill and Donna Sweat of Winderlea and Scott Wright of Scott Paul Wines.

I look forward to our next meeting, perhaps with a White Burgundy focus in the Spring.

P.S  Thanks very much to David Beck of Crawford Beck Vineyard for the picture.
