On September 1, three Michelin-starred chef Arnaud Lallement and Champagne Armand de Brignac debut a new luxury tasting menu, exclusively available at the five-star, Relais & Châteaux hotel L’Assiette Champenoise. A historic first, this is the only culinary experience in the world to offer each of the Champagne’s five prestige cuvées in one place.
Tucked away in the hills of Champagne, France, the ultra-luxurious L’Assiette Champenoise’s new five-course tasting menu pairs French delicacies such as Langoustine Royale and Pigeonneau Fermier with Champagne Armand de Brignac’s handcrafted Gold Brut, Rosé, Blanc de Blancs, Demi Sec and the incredibly rare Blanc de Noirs, of which only 2,333 bottles exist.
Inspired by the long-standing friendship between 13th-generation winemaker Alexandre Cattier and Gault et Millau guide’s 2014 Chef of the Year Arnaud Lallement, the menu is a deeply personal representation of their shared passion for exemplary French cooking and the art of winemaking. The special tasting menu can be booked as a standalone experience (500EU per person), or as part of a luxury package including one night accommodation in a Terrace Suite, breakfast, luxury car transfers from Paris or Reims TGV station and an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Champagne Armand de Brignac’s family-owned winery and historic chalk cellars, which are closed to the public year-round (2,500EU for two). At the restaurant, guests may now also indulge in Champagne Armand de Brignac by the glass, for the very first time.
