Claude Godard has a “Burgundy Passion”

When you taste Chef Godard’s Cuisine you can feel the roots from Burgundy.
Escargot, Egg “Meurette”, Short Rib Bourguignon and also Frog’s leg for “Special” are only example of what you can find on the Menu of Madison Bistro.
Good cuisine does match with good wines and here starts the show. The wine list is not over crowded but the selection is perfect with a nice focus on, Guess what? Wines from Burgundy of course.
From the north to the south starting by Chablis in the Yonne Valley to The Beaujolais region, now almost part of Burgundy family, you can enjoy a wide white or red selection.
Chablis, Vaillons, Valmur, Macon, Pouilly and more for the Chardonnay, Savigny, Gevrey Chambertin, Echèzeaux, Santenay, Reuilly are flirting with all the Beaujolais Crus.
Burgundy counts five well none grapes, Chardonnay, Sauvignon-blanc, Aligotes for the whites and Pinot-Noir and Gamay for the Reds and they are all beautifully represented at Madison Bistro.
We all know that Burgundy wines are not the most affordable but Claude wants to keep them accessible by not margin like a normal restaurant would do.
To share your passion with Burgundy, make a stop at Madison Bistro you will not be disappointed.

NYC Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 Celebration

Thanksgiving is the most popular Celebration of the year in America, always on the fourth Thursday of November.

In France, the Third Thursday of November is marked by the arrival of the “Vin Nouveau” (New Wine).

This year, French Master Chef Claude Godard has chosen to commemorate the NYC Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 Celebration with the latest release from Maison Joseph Drouhin.

The 2015 Beaujolais Nouveau from Joseph Drouhin will be available from November 19th until it sells out!

The arrival of the “Beaujolais Nouveau” is a reason to feast and to party. Because it is limited and does not last, and it should not be drunk like we drink a big bottle of wine from a great wine region.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a young wine, usually fruity and light, made to party and celebrate the day!

Have fun with us during this NYC Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 Celebration and Enjoy the vintage!!!
