Untitled Hosts a Complimentary ‘Beaujolais Nouveau’ French Tasting Event & Unbridled French Connection 11.27

111 West Kinzie Street
Chicago, IL 60654

On Black Wednesday, Untitled will welcome the arrival of the first “new wines of the year” for an evening of French flair and live entertainment.

In honor of the French tradition, which celebrates red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France, guests can escape to Untitled for a complimentary French-inspired tasting event. Patrons will be greeted with light hors d’oeuvres and may clink their glasses with a “À la vôtre” as they sip on classic French samplings of wine by one of the largest wine merchants in France, Les Vins Georges Duboeuf. Guests can fill their glasses with Duboeuf’s well-known favorites like the Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, Duboeuf Domaine Les Chenevieres Macon and the Vidal Fleury Cote du Rhone. To add to the ambiance, guests can enjoy a lively cabaret concert produced by Parisian Claudia Hommel’s The Cabaret Paree Ensemble.

As the magical night continues, Black Wednesday will turn Untitled into the hottest, most risqué Parisian nightclub as it welcomes the Unbridled French Connection featuring French art performances.

Beaujolais Nouveau is on November 27, 2013, and the tasting event will take place from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. followed by Unbridled. The tasting event is complimentary, and guests are encouraged to stay for dinner and enjoy Untitled’s dinner menu and new fall specialties. Admission to Unbridled is $15, but guests can purchase advance tickets for $10 through http://unbridledblackwednesday.eventbrite.com
