MENU & WINE
Mini Goat Cheese & Herb Soufflé
Hand-Dived Queen Scallop, Garlic Butter
Rabbit Chop, Bacon & Grain Mustard
Rothschild Brut NV Champagne
Well knit, integrating a firm backbone of acidity and a fine, lightly creamy texture with flavours of patisserie apple, pastry, blanched almond and meringue. A smoky hint of minerality gains momentum on the finish.
Salad of Crab, Radish, Compressed Apple, Ice Lettuce
Aile d’Argent 2013
This is vibrant and gorgeous with dried pineapple, honey and cream. Full body, plenty of energetic structure and a long, long finish. Goes on for minutes. Fantastic Aile. Sauvignon blanc with semillon. Structured!
Red Wine Braised Venison, Celeriac Truffled Purée
Château Clerc Milon 2004
This outstanding effort displays loads of cassis fruit interwoven with notions of espresso roast, white chocolate, and menthol. It possesses a terrific front end, good mid-section, and moderately high tannin in the finish.
John Stone Rib of Beef with all the Trimmings
Château Mouton Rothschild 1995
A dark and deep colour, the wine has an uncomplicated but also precise and noble nose on which jammy and candied fruit aromas predominate, with an opening onto fruit in alcohol. The palate is both fresh and complex, candied fruit accompanying liquorice flavours. Dense and chewy tannins continue to lend the wine a fine structure, while lingering fruit flavours extend into a long and warm finish.
Château Mouton Rothschild 1999
The wine has an evolved colour with a slightly orange, brickish tint at the rim and a deep and complex nose that offers an array of stewed fruit, black fruit, tobacco, spice (clove) and peppery aromas. The attack is fresh, on ripe fruit with an attractively mineral touch, while acidulated berry fruit on the palate complements a creamily smooth and precise tannic structure, leading into a pleasantly long and fruity finish. A wine full of generosity and freshness, typical of the vintage
Thyme Poached Peach, Vanilla Mousseline, Raspberry Sorbet
Château Coutet 1997
A classic example of elegance allied to richness and intensity, Coutet’s 1997 exhibits an expressive, floral, citrusy, honeyed nose, with notes of orange, Chinese black tea, pineapple, and spicy oak. It is all finesse, with honey, medium to full body, gorgeous delineation, and refreshing underlying acidity. It should drink well young.
