The Swinging Sixties Wine Dinner with Hugo Rose MW

The 1961 vintage may have been a legendary year for wine, but Bleeding Heart is out to show there’s plenty more vintages to be enjoyed from the subsequent decade with an exclusive wine dinner on Wednesday 28 October. To be held in the medieval setting of The Crypt in Ely Place, the evening will showcase vintages from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, specially selected by Master of Wine Hugo Rose, the host for the evening. These will be served alongside a four-course dinner from Bleeding Heart’s executive chef, which will include dishes such as foie gras and artichoke terrine with sauternes jelly, mache salad and truffled vinaigrette and roasted sirloin of Scottish beef with five-peppercorn crust, potato and caramelised onion rosti, garlic confit and sauce bordelaise.

The six wines will be served in the following order:

1971 Château La Louvière blanc, Pessac-Léognan
1966 Château Talbot, St-Julien, 4ème cru classé
1964 Château Brane-Cantenac, Margaux, 2ème cru classé
1962 Château Rouget, Pomerol
1961 Moulin de Carruades de Château Lafite, Pauillac
1966 Château Sigalas-Rabaud, Sauternes, 1er cru classé

Tickets are priced at £150 per person which includes an aperitif, all the wines, a four-course dinner, coffee and petits fours, and service.
