Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Dinner in support of Abbaye de Saint-Vivant Association

Le Club FICOFI® was honored to be able to propose another memorable experience, echoing last year's event, by welcoming Aubert de Villaine, shareholder and co-Director of the Domaine de la Romanée Conti. All the wines we tasted that night have been specially matched with the cuisine of Chef Jean-Michel Lorrain from “La Côte Saint-Jacques”, the 3-star Michelin Restaurant in Joigny, Burgundy, where FICOFI use to organize the dinner of the annual Palais des Grands Crus®.

An auction took place to support the “Abbaye de Saint-Vivant” Association whose aim is to preserve and restore the remains of the Saint-Vivant monastery, an inspirational site and one of the last vestiges of early wine-growing history in Burgundy. Christian Laporte, heritage architect, in charge of the restoration project of the Abbaye de Saint-Vivant also attended this exceptional diner.
