Following the theme of three’s, there are three varying ticket options, with customers able to book tickets for a tasting, a lunch, or a dinner. Australian head chef of restaurant Spring (in Somerset House), Skye Gyngell, is the mastermind behind the food pairings. Selected by Dom Pérignon for her “exciting style and simple perfection”, her seasonal pairings promise graceful presentation and complex flavours.
The tastings, of which there are four: morning and afternoon on Saturday and Sunday, will be hosted by Dom Pérignon ambassadors, and guests will taste the newly launched Vintage 2005 and P2 1998, paired with a selection of canapés created by Skye Gyngell.
The three-course lunch, which includes crab, guinea fowl and gariguette strawberries will again be hosted by a Dom Pérignon brand ambassador and will be served alongside Vintage 2005 and P2 1998 for the price of £200. The dinner menu is identical, except for an extra course: young goats curd, foraged herbs, fig, fennel & walnut bread, and costs £250.
Fortunately, The Finest Bubble has been invited to an exclusive dinner the evening before it opens to the public, so for those who cannot attend, we will have full details and reviews on the blog soon after. We are most looking forward to tasting the newly released Vintage 2005, whilst certainly not a stellar year in Champagne, this particular wine has recently been awarded 17.5/20 by Jancis Robinson MW to boost the 95/100 that Antonio Galloni scored it almost a year ago.
