It is not very often that one has the opportunity to take part in a small, informal dinner and tasting which focuses on one of the greatest châteaux in Bordeaux and one of the greatest estates in the world. And I speak as someone in the wine trade!
We are very pleased that Monsieur Pierre-Olivier Clouet, Technical Director of Château Cheval-Blanc has agreed to host this special dinner, which will be open to a select few clients and held in the private dining room of Café Anglais on 5th February.
The evening will commence with a tasting of two recent vintages of the newly-acquired La Tour du Pin, the property which lies at the foot of the pine-lined drive up to Cheval-Blanc, as well as a great young vintage of Cheval-Blanc itself. We will then partner the more mature vintages as detailed on the following page with a menu created by Rowley Leigh, Café Anglais’ Chef Proprietor, specifically for the event. Given the LVMH ownership of the estate, I am also pleased to add that we will kick-off the dinner with a glass of the dry white from Château d’Yquem, Ygrec, and the evening would not be complete if we did not conclude with a glass of the golden elixir itself, would it?
We would advise a swift response should you wish to join us for what will undoubtedly be another superb evening. Please submit the form below to secure place. With any questions or comments, please send us an email or contact any member of the team on +44 (0) 20 3017 2299.
