Dom Pérignon showcases its rare Vintage offerings with a series of events in a plush London townhouse
Best known for its vintage offerings, Champagne brand Dom Pérignon’s latest venture, Les 3 Étages, is a series of lunches, dinners and tastings, arranged to focus on its different ‘Plénitudes’- or levels of maturity.
Set over three floors within a classic London townhouse in a secret location, the journey begins with the launch of the new 2005 Vintage, which represents the first Plénitude or ‘P1’. Subsequently, a 1998 Vintage can be found on the second floor, while ‘P3’ - which comprises the rare 1982 and 1971 Vintages - will be showcased on the top floor as the final and most mature. Food is a paired tasting menu, devised by Michelin-starred chef Skye Gyngell, whose signature light dishes such as crab with shaved raw wild asparagus, borage flowers and samphire, or guinea fowl with morels, broad beans and peas elegantly compliment the stars of the show.
Fendi Casaand Paris-based architect Thierry Lemaire, are plush; a progression of mushroom tones and petrol blues, accented by marble, gold and brass details. This provides a decidedly chic background for the casual fluorescent signage, which lends the space a playful edge, embodying the very essence of one of the most prestigious Champagne brands in the world.
