Friday 2nd March
£135 per person for 7 course tasting menu and a bottle of 2006 Comte de Champagne
We love Champagne dinners at Park House and are delighted the first one this year will be the amazing and Iconic Comte de Champagne from Taittinger. For those unfamiliar with Comte de Champagne it is Taittingers flagship champagne in the same way that Moet has Dom Perignon and Louis Roederer Cristal. In our opinion it is far superior and sets the bar for Blanc de Blanc Chamapgne.
The Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs is made only from the finest Chardonnay grapes grown in the top grands crus vineyards of the prestigious Côte des Blancs. These include Avize, Chouilly, Cramant and Mesnil-sur-Oger.
Made only in the best vintages and in limited quantities this wine is handcrafted from the first pressings and left to mature in Taittinger's 4th century cellars for almost 10 years to create a wine of ultimate elegance, delicacy and finesse whilst displaying great complexity. Join us on the 2nd of March to discover the secret!
For many years we have hosted Champagne houses and have pioneered champagne dinners using just one bottle throughout a 7 course dinner. Why do we do this? Well Champagne as with all wine changes/develops once open, initially starting one dimensional before slowly becoming multifaceted. This allows us to match a 7 course tasting menu to champagne perefectly with increasingly complex and richer foods.
It highlights that Champagne can be drunk all the time!Limited to 24 places.
THE TAITTINGER CHAMPAGE STORY
One of the great and established names in the Champagne region, Taittinger was founded in 1734 by Jacques Fourneaux, a visionary who sowed the seeds for this now giant Champagne house. They produce around 400,000 cases a year of always reliable and delicious Champagne cuvee, Brut Reserve. That sets the scene for their exquisite vintage wines and exceptional Blancs de Blancs prestige cuvee Comtes de Champagne, matched by an equally exquisite and very rare rose. Taittinger have quite an empire, owning a Loire sparkling wine house and a winery in California. Their winery’s location in Champagne is right in the center of Reims.
Taittinger enjoyed a relatively quiet and uneventful history for many years, as the Fourneaux family business prospered and the prestige of the house grew. However, in 2005 the house was brought by Starwood Capital, an American investment company. The French could not believe it, an American owned Champagne House! Mercifully for them, after a few years Taittinger was sold again to Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, grandson of the original founder, and the French bank Crédit Agricole. Since then the family have clawed back control from the Bank, leaving them with a minority share. A classic example of French Patriotism indeed!
