In celebration of Sofitel Wine Days, Sofitel London St James is launching a collection of French wines and cheese canapés. These pairings will be available in the St James Bar and The Balcon, both located at the Sofitel London St James from the 22 September to 31 October.
One of the three wines you will be able to taste is Secret de Famille Côtes du Rhône Blanc Paul Jaboulet Ainé. Bright yellow in colour, it combines a blend of lively pear, spice, white flower and stone fruit aromas with a fine citrus taste.
For those who prefer their wine red, Secret de Famille Côtes du Rhône Rouge Paul Jaboulet Ainé is rich in black fruit and exotic spice aromas such as sandal wood and cinnamon. The final wine, Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine Roux Pinot Noir, is produced by Domaine Roux Pere & Flis. This bottle of wine is fine with an appealing texture, well judged oak and well defined length.
Whether ordered by the bottle or by the glass each wine will be accompanied by complimentary cheese canapés. Goat cheese lovers will be offered Eve, developed in Somerset. For those who prefer a blue cheese, Perl Las offers a creamy, rich flavour developed in Glyneithinog. The Cornish Wild Yarg completes the offering with a buttery and marginally brittle textured cheese.
During Sofitel Wine Days visitors and guests will be able to view wine and cheese display at the restaurants Charcuterie bar, at the entrance of The Balcon.
The Balcon is an all day dining destination that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner
