2017 couldn’t have started on a better note for wine lovers! Bringing a regal, once-in- a- lifetime experience for connoisseurs is Dom Pérignon, that promises to kick start the new year with a unique event at the recently inaugurated Ducasse au Château de Versailles. Organized in the sophisticated interiors of the luxury hotel, the experience is brought to life by celebrated chef- Alain Ducasse, thus giving champagne aficionados a chance to explore the greatest of the Dom Pérignon Plenitudes alongside the choicest of foods.
Located in the royal setting of the Versailles, this culinary treat promises to be a wholly mesmerizing affair. At dinner, attendees can peek through Ore’s first-floor windows over the château’s Cour Royale and the Cour d’Honneur to the gold-fringed rooftops above. Further, the tableware encompasses the best of silver-plated cutlery, hand-crafted Venetian-style glassware and pretty porcelain from Bernardaud in Limoges. If it still doesn’t cut it for you, you can have the 10 course meal served to you by the uniformed waiting staff clad in exclusive purple frock coats and periwigs.
On the table, dinners can expect to sample the most decadent dishes like quivering slabs of foie gras, scallops resting in a grey-green crescent of shimmering caviar, spelt risotto with shavings of white Alba truffle, and lobster served with a thin slice of cep tart. Chef Ducasse has created the contemporary yet modernistic palette to especially bring out the three facets of the wine i.e. intensity, minerality and precision. For those who can’t wait to live Dom Pérignon P2 experience, the event is available for personal hire at the restaurant throughout 2017.
