Soutirage poured classic wines at Davos party hosted by Sean Parker
(January 25, 2013Yountville, CA) Soutirage, a fine and rare wine retail and lifestyle company that provides wine enthusiasts with the highest possible customer service and bespoke experiences, returned to Davos, Switzerland tonight for a fifth consecutive year to host one of the hottest parties at The World Economic Forum. The team of wine consultants has previously been associated with the annual party thrown by venture capital firm, Accel Partners. This year they were tapped by wunderkind Sean Parker to host an after-hours party, where they poured and educated guests on wines from some of Europe's most reputable producers. John Legend performed, and San Francisco tastemaker Ken Fulk planned the party.
"It was an honor to be invited to Davos again. The world's global leaders in finance and tech came together in one room to relax, mingle and have some fun. We thought it appropriate to showcase wines from classic producers, several of which are ideally mature for drinking," says Soutirage President, Matt Wilson.
Wines poured included Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne 2007, Château Pape Clément Blanc 2009, Ygrec de Château d'Yquem 2010, Château Cos d'Estournel 1990, Gaja Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn 1998, and Vega Sicilia Único Magnum 1986.
In addition, guests at the party were privy to taste the much-anticipated L'Artisan du Cognac No. 50 Grande Champagne Cognac, an extremely rare single-cask of Cognac from the 1950 vintage from Nicolas Palazzi and Evan Yurman. These single-case artisanal eaux-de-vie are among the most rarified distillates on earth today.
