Frerejean Frères Champagne gourmet dinner

The luxurious 15th century Swan Hotel at Lavenham has teamed up with top Champagne producer Frerejean Frères to host a gourmet dinner sampling elegant wines matched with delectable cuisine.
Different Champagnes will be served to match each of the three courses plus an aperitif. This exquisite and sophisticated evening is the result of an inspired collaboration between The Swan’s Head Sommelier, François Belin, and Head Chef Justin Kett.

Ideal to sip on its own, or drink with a meal, the NV Frerejean Frères Champagne 1er Cru Brut is a golden Champagne of exceptional quality with fine bubbles and sweet fruit, while still being crisp and dry; it will be served with the canapés and starter. The main course will be accompanied by 2005 Frerejean Frères, Blanc de Blanc, Cuvée des Hussards, Brut. Produced 100% from Côte des Blanc Chardonnay, its aged for a minimum of seven years before disgorgement followed by a further year in the bottle. The deep ruby NV Frerejean Frères, 1er Cru, Brut Rosé will be served with the pudding course.

The experience begins at 7pm with the aperitif and canapés in the lounge. This will be followed by a three-course dinner served at 7.30pm in The Swan’s elegant private dining room with guests seated together at the banquet table. As these wine dinners are becoming very popular and places are limited, early reservation is recommended; any special dietary requirements should also be advised when booking since it’s a set menu.

The Frerejean Frères Champagne dinner costs £65 per person or make a night of it and book a room at the fully inclusive rate of £125 per person based on two sharing a Classic double or twin room with full Suffolk breakfast.
