Sparkling Wine Dinner featuring Legras Champagne (Syd: 22 May)
Sparkling Wine Dinner - 4 courses + 5 Legras Champagnes + 5 Dominio de la Vega Traditional Method Cavas
Well known and highly respected in France, the fabulous Legras family make supremely elegant Champagnes based on the top class Chardonnays from the village of Chouilly, at the start of the Côte des Blancs, just outside Épernay.
Founded in the sixteenth century, Legras is one of the great names of Chouilly, the famous and most northerly village of the Côte de Blancs, one of the 17 villages that are exclusively classified Grand Cru.
Today, the sixth generation manages this House and although one should not necessarily judge a Champagne by the number of listings it has in the Michelin restaurants of Paris, one can not fail but to be impressed by Legras. While relatively unknown in Australia, R&L Legras is famed for producing private label cuvées for some of Europe’s best restaurants, including La Tour d’Argent, Le Doyen, Guy Savoy, Bernard Loiseau’s three-star eponymous Relais in Saulieu, Burgundy, as well as initiating a new partnership with Singaporean chef, Justin Quek of Sky on 57 at Marina Bay Sands.
All their wines are 'Blanc de Blancs' - with no Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier (except the rosé,of course!).
Dominio de la Vega is a family winery which belongs to the Utiel-Requena PDO, and the CAVA DO, located among vineyards in the Casa-Bodega built by Conde Ferrer de Plegamans in the early XVIIIth century. The winery is located in the altiplano of Utiel-Requena, at 700m of altitude, which gives a very expressive and authentic character to the cavas. With more than 35 years of experience, it is well-ranked due to its quality and innovation. Daniel Expósito, their enologist, is part of the Cava Regulatory Board.
These are high-end wines that are elaborated essentially from the singular and native Bobal grape, thus breaking the Spanish varietal uniformity.
"Excellent" cavas, as reviewed by Robert Parker, the Peñín Guide and the Associations of Enologists and Sommeliers. "Best Cava of Spain", "Winemaker of the Year" and "Winery of the Year" are just some of the awards bestowed on this elegant family winery.
Enjoy a four course menu accompanied by 5 Legras Champagnes + 5 Traditional Method Dominio de la Vega Cavas.
