Coming Soon: Matter of Taste New York City

Mark your calendars for December 3 and reserve your tickets now: Matter of Taste is returning to New York City. As part of the continuing global series of exclusive events for members and guests, Matter of Taste New York—the final event of 2017—is set to thrill the palates of attendees. 

Held at the Conrad New York, the spectacular event features a fantastic line-up of over 250 wines, all rated 90 points or higher by Robert Parker Wine Advocate. The theme of this year’s event is Left-Bank Bordeaux-Inspired wines and Champagne. 

Leading off the Champagne-themed events is a once-in-a-lifetime Champagne Salon Dinner at Daniel on December 2. The sumptuous five-course dinner will be led by Wine Advocate reviewer Stephan Reinhardt, who covers Champagne as well as numerous other wine regions, along with Salon Delamotte Export Director Mathieu Pouchan. The carefully crafted menu is designed to showcase the wines of Champagne Salon and Champagne Delamotte and will feature six vintages of each, dating back to 1970.

Another can’t-miss event in the line-up is the Champagne Bollinger Perspective, presented by reviewer Stephan Reinhardt and Cyril Delarue, sixth generation of the Bollinger family. This presentation will take an in-depth look at the Tête de Cuvée wines of Champagne Bollinger, founded in 1829.

MOT NYC will also celebrate the new English translation of Wine Advocate reviewer Luis Gutiérrez’s book: The New Vignerons, a New Generation of Spanish Wine Growers. And, I haven’t even mentioned The Ultimate Hedonist’s BYOB Dinner…. Head over to to learn more and to get your tickets (before they run out!).  

See you soon!
