Burgundy Week

La Paulée de New York is Daniel Johnnes' homage to La Paulée de Meursault and the traditions of Burgundy. La Paulée is a Burgundian celebration held at the end of the grape harvest where the people of Burgundy would bring a bottle and food to share with others in the community. This celebration takes on a spirit of a long BYOB starting at noon and going till the next morning.

History of La Paulée

This harvest festival was once a widespread practice throughout France but the La Paulée is specific to the Meursault region in the Côtes d'Or. La Paulée de Meursault is the last of "the three glorious days," that take place around Beaune on the third weekend of each November. The first day centers on a Saturday banquet hosted by the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin at the Château du Clos Vougeot. On Sunday, the renowned auction of Hospices de Beaune wines is held in the beautiful fifteenth century Hôtel-Dieu. The grand finale of this oenophilic trilogy is La Paulée, an extravagant luncheon that starts at noon on Monday at the Château de Meursault, that La Paulée de New York resembles.

Burgundy Week at 67 Wine

Burgundy Byer
Burgundy is a wine lover’s soul mate. It engages our senses, inspires our imaginations, challenges our intellect, and flirts with our desires. It seduces and lovingly pleasures us time and again. Burgundy is a wine lover’s enchantment. No other wine demands so much from us, nor gives as much in return.
~ Bart, Our Burgundy Buyer
