Dinner on the Titanic - Drinks

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of doing a dinner in homage to the Titanic - it sank April 14/15, 1912.

Not going to do the full 1st Class dinner, which would be eleven courses!

The original wine list is cryptic, but I have this:

Claret

Château Rouzan Segla, first quality

Château Camponac, Medoc

Hock - Rhine wine

Rudesheim, still

Moselle

Josephshofer, still

Burgundy

Volnay

Also, numerous varieties of champagne (don't have the names). I don't have vintages.

Interestingly, there is some indication that some of the vintages were from exactly

one hundred years ago.

Any suggestions for wines that would represent these names?

Thanks.

Claret

Château Rouzan Segla, first quality

This is Chateau Rauzan-Segla, AOC Margaux. MacArthurs has the 1996....for $89.99

Hock - Rhine wine

Rudesheim, still

The most common producer from that village is Josef Leitz. His wines are pretty readily available.

Burgundy

Volnay

A common AOC, readily available. I recommend the wines of Lafarge, if you don't mind a little tannin in your Burgundy. Again, MacArthurs is a good source, including a few back vintages.

Another approach would be classic cocktails. Both the Sazerac and Manhattan, I believe, would've been invented by that time. And chances are the top class passengers drank plenty of Madeira as well.
