Posted on

La Paulée is an hommage to La Paulée de Meursault, a convivial Burgundian fête shared by growers and their guests. At La Paulée, guests sample current releases and older vintages from the most sought-after domaines of Burgundy. Morrell Wine Bar &; Café has partnered with La Paulée in promoting Burgundy during the weeks leading up to the annual La Paulée gala in New York on March 9th. We have designed a Burgundy-centric wine promotion to give enthusiasts a unique opportunity to discover the endless joys of Burgundy.
