‘Mondovino’ wines and dines

Pic party emphasizes vintage vino

For the celebration of a documentary about wine, there should be a list more important than the attendees, specifically, the bottles uncorked.

“Mondovino’s” dinner and wine tasting at the Costes featured wines rich in terroir. Served were several premier crus of Burgundy — Hubert de Montille’s 1997 Pommard “Les Rugiers” and ’97 Volnay, Louis Boillot’s 2002 “Les Caillerets” Volnay and Barthod’s 2002 Chambolle-Musigny — plus 1988 Mas de Daumas Gassac from Languedoc, a 2000 Chateau Pradeaux Bandol and a white from Domaine de Souch.

The film’s “stars” delivered speeches before getting to the wine: Aime Guibert, the vintner at Mas de Daumas Gassac in Aniane, France; Volnay’s Hubert de Montille, who attended with his daughter winemaker Alix; Yvonne Hegoburu, who became a winemaker in Juarancon, France, in the wake of her husband’s death in the mid-1980s.
