Moillard Wine Dinner at Repast

I was lucky enough to attend the Moillard Wine Dinner at Repast last night and it was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. Jean Moillard was there, giggly and wide-eyed, pouring the best of what her 6th-generation vineyards had to offer. Chef Joe Truex sent plates out of the kitchen that could compete with any of the finest dining destinations. This was the menu:

Curried Winter Squash Bisque with Apple Foie Gras Dumplings
Macon-Villages, Brecot 2006
Sweetbreads and Country Ham with Smoked Tomatoes and Capers
Chorey-Les-Beaune 2006
Black Truffle Agnolotti
Meursault, Clos du Cromin 2005
Duck a la Placha with Escargot and Red Wine Risotto
Crozes-Hermitage 2005
Chocolate Pot Du Creme with Peanut Butter Mousse
