Food and Wine Matched Evening: A Sam's Chop House Spectacular

THIS is an extravagant treat. A fabulous night of food and matched wines at one of the city's most atmospheric restaurants, Sam's Chop House.

Sam's sommelier and wine buyer, George Bergier, (a pure gent folks) along with his protégé Nick Fildes, will be hosting the final of this year’s Sam's food and wine evenings. This one focuses on France – the world’s largest wine producer.

Reception drink

Champagne Lallier, Grand Cru Reserve, Brut NVA classy Champagne with exhilarating freshness, complexity & finesse, made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Menu and drinks

Corn Fed Chicken & Foie Gras Terrine. A Reg Johnson’s corn-fed chicken & foie gras terrine served with pear chutney and toasted brioche.

Turckheim Reserve, Pinot Gris 2009, Alsace. Beautiful, aromatic Pinot Gris made from selected grapes by Cave de Turckheim, by the best co-operative in the world.  Rich, ripe and rounded with floral & spice aromas & a slightly smoky finish.

Scallops & Cauliflower. Roasted Scottish scallops with a cauliflower cream.

Cotes du Rhone Blanc, Les Rabassieres 2009, Rhone Valley. An interesting blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier, made from 30 & 70 year old vines with concentrated and complex flavours, supple and ripe with apricot, peach & tropical fruits on the nose. Floral palate and citrus fruit notes.

Chateau Lyonnat 2008, Lussac Saint Emillion, Bordeaux, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc give us a deep garnet coloured wine. Warm spiced bread and red fruit character, powerful yet supple, with vanilla notes on the finish. Produced by Brigitte & Gerard Milhade

Chateau du Seuil, Cerons, Bordeaux. The property is run by Sean and Nicola Allison, and was given to them by Nicola’s Welsh parents.  Nicola’s husband is a New Zealander and he has brought the best elements of New World viticulture and wine-making to the du Seuil.
