Needless to say, this is going to be a phenomenal night, and all in support of one of our most cherished organizations.
An evening with the next generation of French winemakers
Join us for a very special dinner service at Death & Taxes on March 25th; we'll be joined by 3 of France's leading winemakers, who all happen to be women who have taken leadership of their families' vineyards. These three powerhouse winemakers--Melanie Pfister (of Domaine Pfister in Alsace); Françoise Ollier (of Domaine Ollier-Taillefer in Faugères); and Françoise Le Calvez (of Château Coupe Roses in Minervois)--will all be in the restaurant as acting guest sommeliers, as we feature their wines in a by-the-glass TAKEOVER.
This is a rare opportunity to try these wines while hearing about them directly from the producer.We’ll be featuring something for everyone: reds, whites, rosés, and even sparkling options.
To further celebrate this incredible display of women in wine, our executive chef Lauren Ivey will be offering a featured menu (alongside our regular menu) that pays homage to women chefs we admire, from Julia Child to Alice Waters. No tickets are required; simply make your reservation here [https://resy.com/cities/rdu/death-and-taxes?date=2019-03-25&seats=2].
Our Marrow Magnum Monday wine selections this month are all selected from Old World vineyards. We’ve chosen classic, palatable red blends that not only pair with our marrow, but all of our delicious new menu additions as well.
On February 4th, our selection is a Tenuta Monteti, "Caburnio," Bordeaux Blend from Italy. This savory Super-Tuscan blend from the seaside winery of Tenuta Monteti is silky, smooth, and beautifully aromatic.
On February 11th, we’ll feature “Brezeme” Cote-du-Rhones, by Eric Texier. Through all organic and minimal intervention winemaking, this cutting edge producer gives us a 100% Syrah wine from one of the top sites in the area. It is perfectly ripe, tasting like the summer's best blackberries dusted with black pepper and licorice.
On February 18th, our choice is Château de Parenchere, Bordeaux Supérieure. This wine is an intense red, with notes of dark fruit and elegant tannins; and is an example of the versatile wines coming out of Bordeaux that are immediately intended for the dinner table.
On February 25th, we’ll end the month with Domaine Pelican, "Trois Cépages," a blend of three grapes: Pinot Noir, Trousseau & Poulsard. From France’s easterly, Jura, this selection is full of bright red fruit flavors and zippy acidity; and will bring new meaning to food versatility.
You’ll truly be feeling all the love this February, with our wide range of Old World blends. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.
January is already here! It’s time to start your New Year with a bang, popping bottles at Marrow Magnum Mondays at Death & Taxes.

On January 7th, we’ll start our month of magnums with Failla Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast from our great friends at Failla winery. This Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast over delivers year after year with beautifully layered ripe berry fruit, sweet spices and rose petals.
On January 14th, we’ll feature Blackbird Vineyards Arriviste Rosé. A glass of this sophisticated, dark-fruited rosé from our friends at Blackbird Vineyards will hit the spot with our tasty bone marrow. Who says you can enjoy rosé in the winter?
On January 21st, we are featuring a beautiful single vineyard expression of Pinot Noir from Davis Family Vineyards, Davis Family Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir. The fruit for this wine comes from the Dutton Ranch Vineyard and has mouthwatering acidity, exotic fruit aromas and signature blueberry fruit flavor.
On January 28th, we’ll finish off our magnum month with Jaboulet Paralelle 45 Cotes-du-Rhone by Skurnik Wines. We’ll be featuring both the Cotes-du-Rhone and single vineyard Crozes-Hermitage from Paul Jaboulete. It’s hard to beat a juicy Grenache-based wine or a spicy Syrah with our bone marrow...
You’ll truly be drinking for a delicious experience, and a great cause, this January. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.
It’s December, and the countdown to 2019 has officially begun on Marrow Magnum Mondays at Death & Taxes. So, what could be our featured magnums this month, you ask? An abundance of bubbles, of course! Champagne, aka the official drink of celebration, will be helping us float through the holiday season, and most importantly, assist bringing in the new year!
We’ll be pairing these bottles of bubbles with our featured embered bone marrow for an over-the-top experience:
On December 3rd, look for Laherte-Freres Ultradition Brut. This 7th generation, family-run house makes wines with distinction and personality which is exciting to taste, and a great launch to our sparkling month.
On December 10th, we’ll be featuring two varietals of Champagne in the Brut family: the Aubry Brut & Laurent Perrier Cuvée Le Brut. Experience the difference between a well-established Champagne house making consistently beautiful wines, from classic varieties and an up-and-coming Champagne grower making seriously complex wines from Champagne’s forgotten varieties.
On December 17th, it’ll be a classic evening, highlighting one of the oldest Champagne houses: Lanson. This producer continues to make improvements to the quality and production of their wines creating fresh, elegant styles with loads of complexity. Tonight the flavorful Black Label and the beautifully floral Rosé are both by the glass!
On December 24th, Christmas Eve, we’ll finish out our Magnum Monday 2018 year with grandeur! We’ll be featuring Pierre Moncuit Cuvee Moncuit-Delos Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru (can you say that five times fast?!) This wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grown in the best vineyards in Champagne. Grab a friend and treat yourself to some calm before the storm tomorrow. You deserve it!
