Wine Pairing Menu -- Champagne France
To complement the tasting menu, sommelier Andrey Tolmachyov has crafted three wine pairings that highlight both the iconic Champagne houses alongside smaller, modern, biodynamic wineries.
The attentive curation of the pairings serves as a reminder that Champagne wines include more than sparkling varieties and may be relished throughout the meal, beyond the clink of a toast. As is customary, guests bringing in their own wine from the region will be waived a corkage fee.
The classic pairing is an introduction to the three grapes grown in Champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir, their exclusive use by winemakers and blends which show off depth and complexity. As grapes respond differently to certain soil, guests will discover unique characteristics from producers mere minutes apart.
The reserve pairing deepens the tasting experience to include premium pours with a greater complexity to the region, featuring more exclusive bottlings and rarer vintages. Expect wines that are refined, subtle and exciting with highlights from Champagne Charles Mignon, Roger Coulon, and Larmandier-Bernier.
The Grand Pairing is the most exclusive of the pairings with vintages from benchmark houses that are most closely associated with the region. The portfolio is an indulgence of wines which are complex, with phenomenal depth and texture, venerating the grape and history of the region throughout the entire process.Reservations
