Michel Roux Jr. hosts Château Branaire-Ducru wine dinner at Roux at Parliament Square
On 13 June, Michel Roux Jr. will host an exclusive wine dinner at Roux at Parliament Square. He will be joined by winemaker Jean-Dominique Videau from the renowned Château Branaire-Ducru in Bordeaux, whilst Head Chef Steve Groves will prepare an exquisite five-course menu with each dish perfectly matched to one of the Château Branaire-Ducru wines.
Château Branaire-Ducru is situated in the Saint-Julien appellation of Bordeaux, and with vines planted over 60 hectares, all grapes are harvested by hand. Dedicated to producing wines that bring pleasure with food, Château Branaire-Ducru seeks purity, fruit and freshness in every vintage.
For the dinner on 13 June, Steve Groves has taken inspiration both from seasonal British ingredients and dishes from the Bordeaux region of France. Guests will be welcomed with Champagne and a selection of light bites. To follow, dishes will include Langoustine, pig’s trotter risotto and capers, served with Duluc de Branaire Ducru, 2010 and Roast turbot, hen of the woods and chervil alongside Branaire Ducru, 2012. The pièce de résistance will be a beautiful Roast beef sirloin, truffle pommes purée and hispi cabbage served with both Branaire Ducru 2003 and Branaire Ducru 2000. Concluding the meal, Tunworth, toasted crumpet and gooseberry compote will pair elegantly with the cedar, plum and blackberry aromas of the Branaire Ducru 2010.
Michel Roux Jr., Steve Groves and Jean-Dominique Videau will present each pairing, whilst the stylish and luxurious setting of Roux at Parliament Square will provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable evening.
