Chateau Simone Wine Dinner at Junoon Restaurant, Pairing Provence Wine with Indian food

Château Simone Wine Dinner at Junoon Restaurant, Tuesday February 4th from 7pm to 10 pm
Château Simone perches between Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Bandol. The Rougier family’s ancient vines cling to a 750-foot limestone face that is angled away from the sun. This allows the vines to retain their freshness despite the region’s fierce heat. 
Chateau Simone harvests an incredible diversity of grape varieties.  They harvest Proveçal favorites Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah, and Carignan—but they also cultivate and crush Manosquin, Castet, Muscat Noir, Théoulier, Tibouren, Picpoul Noir, Muscat de Hambourg, and many others. 
The Rougier family are renowned for bottling elegant, floral, aromatic reds that dance on the palate rather than coat it with alcohol and extract. This is Provençal wine for lovers of Burgundy, Barbaresco, and traditional Bordeaux.
I’ll serve a dry, sparkling Riesling to sip on as we gather at the tables and have some snacks prepared by Chef Akshay.  I have photos of the estate to share with you.
I am pairing the white blend with Chef's Eggplant Chaat layered with tamarind sauce and raita.  It pairs beautifully with the earthy sweetness of the eggplant, the tamarind notes and the creaminess of the raita. 
Next, I’ll pour the Rosé with the Tandoori Salmon with beets, it’s a magical pairing.  We can make a vegetarian option for this course. 
I asked Chef to make his delicious Lamb Biryani with all the accompaniments for the Red. The Biryani has wonderful coriander notes which pair so well with the floral and red currant notes of the wine.  Chef can create a Vegetarian version.  Then we’ll have saffron custard with some sweet Tokaji from Hungary I just brought in.
Here is the link to the invite.  Please note that the price is all-inclusive of food, wine, tax and gratuity.  If you have the evening free, I would love for you to attend.
Thank you,
