In keeping with its established reputation as an innovator in fine dining experiences, The Restaurant at The Legian is hosting a wine dinner on Thursday, August 26, 2004.The Menu
An evening presented by the Hotel's Executive Chef, Nam Nguyen, with wines personally presented by Monsieur Philippe Blanc, Managing Director of Château Beychevelle, the evening will feature Chef Nam's carefully presented 5 course menu complimented by wines from Château Beychevelle, Château Beaumont and Domaine Hetszolo - including the famous Tokaj Aszu 5 Puttonyos.
• Château Beychevelle - Established by the powerful Duke of Epernon under Henri III, local legend contends that passing ships were expected to lower their flags in homage to the Duke. Thus, "Baissse-Voille" or "lowering the flag" evolved into the name of the region - Beychevelle. Today, passing ships might pause to sample some of the 40-50,000 cases of fine wine produced each year by the 85 hectares of grapes under cultivation at the Château, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot and a small quantity of Cabernet Franc.
• Château Beaumont - Located on the left bank of the Garonne River, between the regions of St. Julien and Margaux, this Château specializes in the Cabernet Sauvignon grape so well suited to the coarse, gravelly soil found there.
• Domaine Hetszolo - One of the world smallest producers of wine, the rare Hungarian wines of this domain were once declared "Vinum Regum Rex Vinorum" ("The Wine of Kings and King of Wine") by Louis XIV. Almost destroyed by pestilence in the last century and in semi-seclusion for 40 years under Communist rule, Domain Hertszolo is quickly re-establishing Tokai Wines as one of the world's best vintages. Harvested as "noble rot" – somewhat shriveled on the vine in late October and November, the grapes are then hand sorted and fermented in oak barrels for several years in the caves of the region.
