Vive la France: French Wine and Food Tasting at Fortnum & Mason

18/07/2012 from 18:45 to 20:00

Raise the flag for Bastille Day with a Fortnum's evening that marries the very best of French wine and food.

See how Meursault complements Comté, taste a Gigondas that stands up to the strength of Bleu d'Auvergne, be delighted by the Pyrenean Abbaye de Belloc and the racy Chenin Blancs and Sauvignon Blancs from the Loire and Bordeaux.

Their range of patés from Strasbourg cries out for Cabernet Franc from St Nicholas de Bourgeuil and Gamay from Morgon, and their Bayonne ham is sweet and tender enough to partner reds from the Minervois.

Fortnum & Mason have made a concerted effort to include wines and foods that are a little off the beaten track, yet are so outstanding they need to be brought, according to them,  to our attention.

Ticket Price: £35 redeemable should a case of 12 bottles from the tasting be bought. Cases can be mixed.

Reservations: 020 7973 4136
