Come Dine with Bordeaux - a dinner built around the classic pleasures of Bordeaux at our wine evening on Thursday 27th September.
The evening will be enlivened by our local wine expert, Charles Metcalfe. Charles has attended almost every release of new wines in Bordeaux for the last twenty years and knows his stuff! He visits Bordeaux every spring to taste the new vintage and helps buy top Bordeaux wines for the City of London official banquets - he even checked every bottle poured at the banquet for the Queen's 80th birthday.
So discover the differences between the Right and Left Banks, learn about the Bordeaux grape family, those that have stayed at home in Bordeaux and those that have travelled (did you know that Malbec and Carmenère both originated in Bordeaux?). All in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. And partnered by a series of carefully crafted dishes from Jeremy and his talented kitchen team, chosen to match the subtle and varied flavours from Bordeaux.
And varied they certainly are. If you were a Bordelais, you'd probably just 'drink local', because Bordeaux can fit most slots - it makes aromatic dry whites (including Sauvignon), oaky whites, delicious dry rosés, reds based on on Cabernet, reds at more or less everyday prices and reds affordable only to celebrate an Olympic gold or a Diamond Jubilee. Well, Jeremy can't promise to pour the latter, but we have nevetheless selected some excellent wines from the Jeremy's list, including some new arrivals.
Spaces are filling up fast so do be quick to book either by calling us on 01444 441102 or book online.
We look forward to seeing you then.
Jeremy, Vera and the team
