Dom Pérignon and Claridges have collaborated to create the ultimate event
Calling all champagne loving ladies – prepare yourself for some serious excitement, as the connoisseurs at Dom Pérignon have created what might just be the most opulent London pop-up of all time. Transform is a 15-minute interactive experience on South Molton Street in Mayfair, where visitors can uncover the magic behind the vintage bubbly through sights, sounds, and yes, you’ll get to enjoy a glass of the elixir of happiness AKA their P1 2006.
If you’ve ever wondered how it’s possible to produce something so glorious, DP put it down to their precise methods. Only releasing vintage champagne, it evolves in a succession of peaks AKA Plénitudes, the first reached after seven years and the second after fifteen. The unique multi-sensory experience will take you through this transition so you can discover all of their secrets for yourself.
If you like your glass of bubbly with a side order of top-notch cuisine, DP is also offering the ultimate in gastronomical events. Cellar master Richard Geoffery has joined forces with Claridge’s chef Simon Rogan for a tasting session, three-course lunch and five-course dinner. Set in a lavish Pérignon Suite inside the quintessentially British hotel, and hosted by Geoffery himself, the food has been created to complement your champers to perfection.
We sampled the (obviously delicious) dinner, where the courses ranged from Halibut poached in pine oil to Aberdeen Angus Beef fillet with white truffle, followed by William pear with sweet cheese ice cream. And don’t expect to leave sober, as you’ll be offered a different glass of bubbly with each one, including their P2 1998 and P2 rosé 1996.
If you fancy an evening of popping (several) bottles, you’ll have to be quick as the experience will run for a limited time only, from October 20th-23rd.
