About this Event
Join us on 10th April from 7pm for our Henri Bourgeois Wine Dinner. An evening of great food and wine hosted by Alban Gerin and Didier Cappa.
Sancerre (with its neighbour Pouilly) is the spiritual home of Sauvignon, although a hundred years ago more Pinot Noir was actually planted. How times change. Our producer, Domaine Henri Bourgeois, is the single biggest private domaine in the whole appellation with about 70 hectares of vineyards. In 1950, the Henri Bourgeois estate consisted of a mere two hectares. Today, his sons have expanded the domaine to seventy hectares of vines, judiciously situated among the best slopes of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. The mission statement is clearly articulated: "Our passion for wine inspires us to give the best to the vine and the vinification. Our family tradition, passed through generations, is based on respect of the terroir and winemaking. At Domaine Henri Bourgeois we are committed to producing the finest Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé wines. This means using the best of tradition with the best of modernity. For example, separate vinification of individual parcels, gravity feed-based system in our cellars and close monitoring of the wines from the lees to the bottling are characteristic of the "Bourgeois quality" and our preoccupation with perfection."
£85 per person including an arrival drink and canapés followed by a four course dinner with wines to match.
