This fine wine dinner offers the chance to taste 2 adjacent vintages from the late 1970s of Chateau Cissac, Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux from large bottle format! There will also be 2 different champagnes to start, a fabulous Old Vine Pouilly Fuisse, and a Crusted Port to finish ...in all a bottle of fine wine per person. Here is the full list of wines:
4 bottles Champagne Piper Heidsieck N/V
4 bottles Champagne Lanson Rose N/V
2 Magnums Pouilly Fuisse Vielles Vignes Domaine de la Chappelle 2010
1 Double Magnum (4 regular bottles) Chateau Cissac 1978
1 Imperial (8 regular bottles) Chateau Cissac 1979
2 bottles Graham's Crusted Port 2003
This dinner is planned for a maximum of 28 people so this line-up will give a bottle of fine wine per head.
The menu for the 3 course dinner is as follows (dietary requirements will be catered for on request):
Starter - Deep Fried Calamari with Tartare Sauce OR Smoked Salmon
Main - Lamb Chop with Kidney and Triple Cooked Chips OR a Fish or Vegetarian option is available on request (please indicate if you would like either option when booking)
Cheese or Dessert - British Hard Cheese Selection with biscuits and/or bread OR Treacle Tart with Custard (please indicate which option you would like when booking).
The champagne reception will start at 6.30 and the 3 course dinner will follow at around 7.15. The cost of this dinner including all of the wines, the 3 course dinner, service charge, Paypal and Meetup fees is just £69 which is quite a bargain! I have reserved 16 places for the Meetup group.
