The Little Nell, an upscale Aspen hotel, and Daniel Johnnes, wine director for Daniel Boulud's Group and producer of La Paulée de New York, will host La Paulée des Neiges in Aspen this weekend. "La Paulée des Neiges is like camp for Burgundy lovers," said Master Sommelier Sabato Sagaria, food and beverage director at The Little Nell. On Friday, January 19, festivities kick off with the Collectors Dinner at Element 47. Daniel Boulud and Robert McCormick will prepare an intimate, multi-course dinner designed to complement rare wines sourced directly from the winemakers' private cellars.
On Saturday, January 19, La Paulée's flagship event begins with a morning of skiing, followed by lunch with Burgundy winemakers at the private Aspen Mountain Club. Special menus created by Daniel Boulud and Robert McCormick of Element 47 will be paired with older vintage wines from each attending Domaine. In the spirit of La Paulée, guests are encouraged to bring wines from their personal cellars to be shared along with those of the winemakers.
