Le Gavroche welcomes Bordeaux icon Gildas d’Ollone Oct 29

On Friday, October 29, Le Gavroche will welcome Gildas d’Ollone of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande for a very special evening of rare wines, exquisite food and fabulous company.

Last April, during the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival, Mr. d’Ollone was scheduled present his wines at Le Gavroche – an event that sold out within hours. However, as all flights from Europe were grounded due to the volcanic eruption, he was unable to attend. Le Gavroche is very pleased to now be able to welcome Mr. d’Ollone for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of fine French food and wine.

Guests will enjoy a seven-course dinner, prepared by Executive Chef Rob Guest, which will be paired with twelve extraordinary wines, including some rare selections from Château Pichon Comtesse de Lalande as well as a surprise “mystery wine.”
