Fine Wine and Shellfish Lunch, Friday 31st May 2019


Our Head Chef Stewart Turner is a master at creating wonderful seafood dishes, and his lunch menu will be designed to perfectly partner this superb wine line-up. Following an apéritif in our Green Room, you will begin your lunch with two Blanc de Blancs sparking wines, one from England and the other from Champagne. Following this there will be two Chablis (a Grand Cru and a Premier Cru) to compare and contrast. The wines will be a touch richer for the next course, with a linear, precise Corton-Charlemagne and an exuberant Clos do Vougeot for a richer shellfish dish. The lunch will finish on a sweet note with a classic Sauternes. Hosted by Isabella Cameron, Fine Wine Specialist.
