In Honor of Kurt Cobain – NIRVANA

Founder and lead singer of the rock band Nirvana in 1987, Kurt Cobain was an idealist, a committed activist of underground Grunge-Rock music, anti-social and longing to be a stranger. The purity of his message, his despair, and his success in a society torn apart pushed him to leave us 30 years ago today, in 1994. That same day, two years later, I opened my restaurant in Montreal, L'allumette. Dedicated to Quebec's regional cuisine, it honors Quebec producers and the province's Native American culinary influences. This restaurant was composed like a music band, where everyone had their role and their complementary place. A hushed space of white linen, sterling silverware, and fine porcelain. After the last customer left, Kurt Cobain took up the space at an almost inexplicable volume. For this was the moment when we found ourselves again. Together...

Today, I propose to share with you my interpretation of "The man who sold the world" via this wine that speaks to you by its underground origin, its Grunge-Rock character, but also for its finesse and its provocation so appropriate this April 5, 2024 in the United States. This wine will take you to the limits of your well-hidden sensitivity.

About the label: Tango at Segesta by Mary Heebner
“We partnered with Santa Barbara artist Mary Heebner to launch the series. Her diptych titled Tango at Segesta reminds us of the dramatic climatic zones found in the Umpqua Valley. The warmer growing conditions at the Southern end of the AVA are perfectly suited for this noble Spanish grape.” (langewinery.com)
