London, United Kingdom – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is delving deep into its secret collection of wines and offering guests a unique opportunity to explore some of the finest Grand Crus in France. Each month, the restaurant will celebrate its passion for exceptional wines by showcasing a different producer and offer the most desirable and prestigious red and white wines at an exceptional price point.
The head sommelier of Alain Ducasse Entreprises, Gerard Margeon, has created a beautiful 37.5 cl carafe for those who may not wish to purchase an entire bottle but still sample exquisite wines. Five Grand Cru wines will be introduced throughout 2012 and guests can enjoy the carafe at lunch or dinner.
Furthermore, wine lovers have the rare opportunity to meet with owners of these acclaimed vineyards at exclusive wine-tasting dinners. The connoisseur will guide guests through the unveiling of a unique collection of vintages, including the chance to sample some first-class vintage wines that have never been offered before in the UK. To accompany the tasting, Jocelyn Herland, head chef of The Dorchester, will create a bespoke menu hosted in the private dining rooms.
“Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is dedicated to championing seasonal produce and offering quality to our guests. We respect and celebrate the devotion of wine producers and wish to offer our guests a very special and unique opportunity to savor exceptional wines,” said Mr. Ducasse. The exclusive Grand Cru wine-tasting dinners are currently scheduled for October 2012, February 2013 and April 2013 (starting from $344 per person, limited places available).
