Friday 8th December - 7pm
Burgundy Grand Cru Wine Dinner
£250 per person
With a world-wide reputation, Burgundy is one of the finest and most-diverse vine-growing regions, with its Grand Cru wines being the most sought after. Over the past decade, Burgundy wines have increased in rarity due to the high demand and small production. They also keep impressing with their quality and ageability.
Join us for an exclusive evening celebrating Burgundy’s finest, as we journey through historic vineyards sampling wines from 1993 through to the early 2000’s under the expert guidance of Romain Bourger, our Director of Wine. Executive Chef Tom Scade has mastered a menu of fine French cuisine to perfectly match – a true taste expedition. This is a once in a lifetime, not to miss, opportunity to taste some of the World’s greatest and rarest wines.
Your ticket includes Champagne and canapés, followed by a four course French menu paired with rare and exquisite fine wines.
Foie Gras “Torchon”
Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, Domaine Leflaive, 2006
This wine is made from four plots planted between 1974 and 1989 and span on both the village of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet, on the famous Hill of Montrachet. This Grand Cru is considered as one of the best terroir for Chardonnay; it is towards the bottom of the hill and has deeper soils giving its wines more density.
Cornish Sole “Veronique”
Le Montrachet Grand Cru, Jacques Prieur, 1993
Maybe the most famous white wine in the world, Le Montrachet sits just above Bâtard-Montrachet. The soil is a bit thinner and with more limestone which directly impacts the elegance of the wine and give it its freshness and minerality.
Yattendon Estate Venison “Grand Veneur”
Chapelle-Chambertin, Jean-Louis Trapet, 1995
Located on the village of Gevrey-Chambertin, this is the “lightest” of the Grand Cru. The soil of the vineyard is rich in stony limestone forcing the roots to dig deep to find the water necessary to the development of the vines. This makes for complex wine. The Trapet style is always elegant and savoury with age.
Epoisse de Bourgogne and Fig Pithivier
Latricières-Chambertin, Jean Louis Trapet, 1996
More intense than Chapelle-Chambertin, this vineyard is on an East facing slope and tend to be flatter and therefore has a more gentle exposure to the sun. The wines have more red berry fruit component as well as a vibrant freshness from this incredible vintage.
A unique tasting opportunity, just in time for Christmas…
