Restaurant 56 is inviting diners to an ‘Award Winning’ Bauget-Jouette Champagne dinner on Saturday 7th November 2015 to celebrate receiving AA 3Rosettes and winning ‘Gastronomic Restaurant’ at the recent Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards. The Bauget-Jouette Champagne house is continually winning commendations in France, having been included in the prestigious ‘Les Gude Hacette des Vins’.
Andrew Scott, the highly acclaimed Executive Head Chef from Restaurant 56 and his team will be creating a gastronomic five course tasting menu with champagne served to complement each course. Diners will also receive expert guidance from vineyard owner and champagne producer Nicolas Bauget and Restaurant Manager Sergio Martinez Rios, who will talk about the range of Bauget-Jouette Champagnes served during the evening.
The champagne is produced by Jean-Pierre, Nicolas and Stephan Bauget, fifth generation of the family who created the 14 hectare vineyards around Eperney back in 1822. Wine making is undertaken at their cellars using traditional champenois methods. Their ancient 27 meter deep cellars, remaining at a constant temperature of 11oC were dug out of chalk during the XVIII Century. With production of around 130,000 bottles each year, the cellars hold a permanent stock of some 300,000 bottles, ensuring customer demand is always met. The range of Bauget-Jouette Champagne is sold exclusively to specialist wine merchants, delicatessens, caterers, good restaurants, societies and 4 and 5 star hotels such as Sudbury House.
Diners, seated at tables of 8 to 10 guests, will be able to enjoy the ambience and classical styling of the beautifully restored ‘Old House’ at Restaurant 56. The Grade II listed building houses stunning artwork and sculpture mixed with carefully selected antiques, luxurious fabrics and soft furnishings. Combined with the exemplary service the hotel is renowned for, diners will have a truly enhanced visitor experience.
“This is an evening of celebration for our diner guests,” says Ulrike le Roux, Sudbury House’s General Manager. “We have joined forces with what we consider to be one of the finest champagne houses in France. The champagnes have been carefully selected to compliment the fine dining menu that Andrew and his team have created for this special evening.”
Places are limited for this formal dinner, so early booking is recommended. The five course tasting menu in Restaurant 56 with champagne is £99.95 per person. To make a reservation, please contact 01367 241272.
