Upcoming – 5 decades of Chateau d’Yquem at Nobu London

Jan 09, 14 Upcoming – 5 decades of Chateau d’Yquem at Nobu London

I don’t usually write about events that I’m not attending but I know the guys over at The Antique Wine Company and they always have good stuff to taste. This time, however, I think they have outdone themselves. They are offering a unique, dare I say it, once in a lifetime opportunity, to taste 5 decades of Chateau d’Yquem paired with the cuisine of Nobu London.

What was most surprising to me was that 5 decades only goes back to the 60’s! But, what vintages they have are going to be tasting. Starting with 1967 and ending with a 2007 – 1975, 1986,2001 and 1990 round out the evening. Nobu’s chef, Mark Edwards has worked closely with AWC to find the perfect pairings for the evening.

The evening is going to be hosted by one of AWC’s wine experts, Stephen Brook, who as a Bordeaux expert, can be counted on to give plenty of insight and expert knowledge on Ch. d’Yquem.  The dinner is scheduled for Wed. Feb 5th. An event like this can only happen in London (or possible China nowadays) and at £750.00 per person, you’re going to have to have some pretty deep pockets to attend. One day…. 😉
