7:00pm Dinner

Charlie Trotter’s
816 W Armitage
Chicago, IL 60614

For centuries, the mention of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild has conjured evocative images and emotions, having been so favored in the Court of Versailles that it was widely hailed as “the King’s Wine.” To celebrate a truly historic auction, we have chosen 20 celebrated vintages reflective of The Fox Cellar, spanning the past four highly successful decades for the estate, including such luminary vintages as 1982, 1986, 1996, 2000, and 2003.

The venue for this spectacular evening will be Charlie Trotter’s, recognized by a variety of prestigious national and international institutions. In 1995 Charlie Trotter’s was inducted into the esteemed Relais & Chateaux and in 1998 was accepted as a member by Traditions & Qualité. It has also received Five Stars from the Mobil Travel Guide, Five Diamonds by AAA and ten James Beard Foundation awards, including ‘Outstanding Restaurant’ (2000) and ‘Outstanding Chef’ (1999). Wine Spectator named the restaurant ‘The Best Restaurant in the World for Wine & Food’ (1998) and ‘America’s Best Restaurant’ (2000).

Our friend Chef Trotter will create an exciting five-course dinner to collaborate with the wines.
