Spuntino Wine Bar & Italian Tapas in Westbury to host Château Maris Wine Dinner

1002 Old Country Road

Château Maris takes an approach to winemaking based on the fundamental premise that wine is grown, not made. The vineyard strictly adheres to biodynamics, a system of organic farming that adopts a holistic approach to produce truly exceptional wine. Executive Chef Ryan Keough has developed a five-course tasting menu to complement these exceptional wines, which includes:
• CHICKEN LIVER PATE BRUSCHETTE – Smoked bacon jam, braised mustard seeds.
o WINE PAIRING: 2013 Chateau Maris Brama Grenache Gris – fresh tropical fruits, honeysuckle, lemon rind and buttered almonds on the nose.

• SEARED ICELANDIC CHAR – Green peas, chervil, prosecco mustard.
o WINE PAIRING: 2013 Le Carignan de Maris, Coteaux de Peyriac – red plum, dried blackberry and dark chocolate flavors, lingering with mocha details.

• SMOKED PORK BELLY – Soft poached egg, grilled shiitake mushroom, brown butter, spinach.
o WINE PAIRING: 2012 La Touge Syrah – spicy dark fruit, ground pepper, wild herbs and hints of olive to go with a medium-bodied, rich palate feel.

• GRILLED BLACK COD – Beurre rouge, mushroom ragu.
o WINE PAIRING: 2012 Cur la Liviniere “Les Anciens” – peppery herbs, fresh plum and berry fruits.

• DARK CHOCOLATE CAKE – Spring berry, whipped ricotta.
