Margot in Covent Garden has recently launched a series of monthly wine dinners, each hosted by the wine maker themselves.
- Margot, 45 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5AA
On Monday 12 March, Champagne Deutz will present a selection of their legendary Champagnes, expertly paired with an exquisite five-course menu from the team at Margot, and served in the restaurant’s beautiful Club Room. From the menu, carpaccio of red Sicilian prawns, buffalo mozzarella and basil will be complemented by the delicate red summer fruits expressed in the Deutz Brut Rosé NV, whilst the powerful yet elegant style of the Deutz Brut 2012 will sit perfectly alongside roast monkfish with pancetta, sauce of purple potatoes and tender stem broccoli. For dessert, the intriguing flavours of strawberry, vanilla olive oil, basil ice cream and caramelised black olives will be paired with the distinctively powerful Cuvée William Deutz Brut 2000; an intensely seductive wine with a bright golden hue, generous in both its structure and flavours.
One of the oldest members of Champagne's prestigious Grandes Marques houses, Champagne Deutz of Aÿ, France, has been making Champagnes marked by finesse, elegance and complexity, since its foundation in 1838 by William Deutz. The house has upheld the traditions of fine Champagne making handed down through five generations. Owning a significant portion of its own vineyards, Deutz selects only top-rated grapes from 275 acres of vineyards in the finest crus of Champagne. The wines are slowly and carefully aged in the chalk-walled cellars far beneath the historic village of Aÿ.
