Tonight marks the start of our 2007 Gourmet Calendar with a dinner celebrating the wines of LVMH. For those unfamiliar with LVMH it stands for Louis Vitton Moet Hennessy and currently it stands as the world's largest luxury goods company. Their portfolio comprises of many designer goods, perfumes, luxury clothing companies and several of the worlds largest and most well know wines and drinks brands. Moet & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, Ruinart, Krug, Dom Perignon, Mercier, Cloudy Bay, Cape Mentelle, Hennessy Cognac, Glenmorangie whisky and many others.
Tonights dinner is mostly focussing on the Champagnes - we start tonight with Veuve Clicquot NV poured from magnums, followed by Moet Brut Imperial for the starter. With the intermediate we are pouring Veuve Clicquot Rose NV. For main course there is an Argentine malbec from Terrazes des los Andes, and with the cheese we are pouring Cloudy Bay Pinot 2004 (screwcap). We finish the meal with Moet vintage 1999.
