CHÂTEAU l’Arrosée 2007

Technorati Tags: ,,

Here is an elegant wine, an exceptional terroir In the Bordeaux region, the vines are not the only things that are cultivated; a whole “art de vivre” has been established here. When Jean-Philippe Caille took over the Château l’Arrosée estate in 2002, he chose to stand by this very French philosophy.

Today, Château l’Arrosée, a Saint-Emilion grand cru classé listed in the famous
Féret guide of 1868, figures among the best wines in the region.

The 2007 vintage is a fine blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet
Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc and is a classic example of the
uncommon nature portrayed by Château l’Arrosée wines.
Rich and intense, deep purple in color.

Thanks to the weather conditions, the 2007 is a noteworthy vintage
with an aromatic, fresh quality. It has a fine nose; slightly toasty
with notes of red fruit and spice. Smooth and sumptuous on the palate with a long finish in the presence of fine tannins.

BROADWAY PREMIERE OF ACCLAIMED PLAY, BY DONALD MARGULIES, DIRECTED BY LYNNE MEADOW,

STARRING LINDA LAVIN & SARAH PAULSON

The Manhattan Theatre Club Broadway premiere of COLLECTED STORIES, by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies (Time Stands Still, Dinner with Friends), directed by Lynne Meadow (The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, The Loman Family Picnic) starts rehearsals today in preparation for a Wednesday, April 28 opening night at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). The production will start previews on Friday, April 9.

COLLECTED STORIES stars Tony Award winner Linda Lavin (The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, The New Century) and Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson (“Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” The Glass Menagerie on Broadway).

This acclaimed drama chronicles the relationship between two female writers – a celebrated New York author (Lavin) and her young protégé (Paulson). As their fascinating story evolves, and the line between fact and fiction blurs, the twists and turns of this complex relationship weave a play that’s as smart and witty as it is powerful.

Lavin and Meadow reunite for this Broadway premiere after working together on MTC’s hit production of The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife.

The design team for COLLECTED STORIES includes Santo Loquasto (Scenic Design), Jane Greenwood (Costume Design), Natasha Katz (Lighting Design), and Obadiah Eaves (Sound Design).
