Michel Roux Jr. will host an exclusive wine dinner at Roux at Parliament Square on the 13th of June, joined by winemaker Jean-Dominique Videau from the renowned Château Branaire-Ducru in Bordeaux. The wine experience will be completed by Head Chef Steve Groves, who will prepare an exquisite five-course menu, with each dish perfectly matched to one of the Château Branaire-Ducru wines.
To ensure the best food-wine experience for his guests, 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. To end the meal, Tunworth, toasted crumpet and gooseberry compote will pair elegantly with the cedar, plum and blackberry aromas of the Branaire Ducru 2010.
Each pairing will be presented by Michel Roux Jr., Jean-Dominique Videau and Steve Groves, while the stylish and luxurious setting of Roux at Parliament Square will provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable evening.
The event will take place on the 13th of June at 6.30pm. The prices are £150 per person, £295 per couple and £550 for four guests.
