The first vintage release of Brimoncourt 2009 will be celebrated with a special dinner served at The Loch & The Tyne on 14th April, pairing the house's champagnes with each of five courses for a bespoke tasting menu, priced at £150 per person. Born under the lucky star of plentiful nature and from an early harvest from selected plots, the 2009 vintage reflects the Brimoncourt singularity and energy: a remarkable Cuvée, of extreme finesse carried by a Chardonnay-led freshness combined with the delicious maturity of twelve-year ageing. George Hersey, restaurant director at the Adam Handling Restaurant Group says that having tasted the pre-release earlier this year, he thought the ageing was outstanding. "What an amazing opportunity to showcase Brimoncourt across our group of restaurants, not only are we having the event at The Loch & The Tyne, but we're also offering the menu by the sea at Ugly Butterfly Carbis Bay, Cornwall."
