Champagne and Food Pairing

on Friday September 8th @ 7pm – RSVP

Valentin from Maison Eric Legrand is back is in town for a couple of days, and he would like to take the opportunity to introduce his Champagne once again.

We already had a chance to taste his wines last year but this time we will offer a different experience: not 3 but 4 of these High-end Maison Legrand Champagne will be paired with some selected Amuse-Bouches to fine-tune our Champagne tasting buds!

 

On the Menu:
Brut Reserve N.V (Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier)
Extra-Brut S.Y (Chardonnay)
Prestige Blanc de Blancs (Chardonnay)
Demi-Sec N.V (Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier) (NEW!!!)

We are still finalizing the food pairing (fried mushroom, spices, Raw Shell fish, Cheeses and some fruits are being discussed).

HKD100 per pers
The wines will be sold on Pre-order only (ranging from HKD450 per bottle for Brut and Demi-Sec to HKD549 
per Bottle for Prestige – 10% discount for a mixed Case of 6 Bottles or more).

The first vineyards of the family Legrand were planted in 1898 and are located in the heart of the Côte des Bar, an exclusive subdivision of the Champagne appellation, due to its unique soil and climate.

Being one of the 3 first winegrowers initiating an independent winemaker movement in 1930, producing their own Champagne instead of selling their grapes crop to the Champagne houses of Reims, this visionary family is still considered a pioneer of the Côte des Bar.

 

The Côte des Bar is the oldest geological region in Champagne area and dates back to the Jurassic period. The soil is predominantly Kimmeridgian clay limestone marl which has been described as « the most famous and important type of soil on earth when it comes to fine wines ».

Plot vinifications are performed over 27 plots well-spread in the Cote des Bars with multitude of micro-climates. The grapes attain *excellent maturity with low yields. Finally, the overall conditions tend to give a better grapes maturity & concentration here than further north.
