Enjoy a Gourmet Champagne Dinner at The Swan

The Swan at Lavenham Hotel & Spa has teamed up with top champagne producer Frerejean Frères to host a gourmet dinner sampling elegant wines with delectable cuisine.

A perfect combination for fine champagne and food lovers, the exclusive evening will take place at The Swan at Lavenham Hotel & Spa on Friday, 15th June. 

Different champagnes will be served to match each of the four courses, plus an aperitif, all carefully selected by The Swan’s Head Sommelier, François Belin to compliment Head Chef Justin Kett’s inspired menu.

The experience begins at 7pm with a selection of canapés and a welcome glass of Frerejean Frères Premier Cru NV. This will be followed by the dinner served at 7.30pm in The Swan’s elegant private dining room with guests seated together at the banquet table. 

Champagnes served will include Frerejean Frères Blanc de Blanc Premier Cru with the starter followed by Frerejean Frères NV Extra Brut 2006 with the intermediate course. For mains guests can enjoy Frerejean Frères Rosé 2009 and with the final cheese course Frerejean Frères Cuvée des Hussards 2012.

Frerejean Frères is a relatively new champagne house to the UK but one that has become a firm favourite on the continent. Growing up with a great passion for the champagne tradition, the three Frerejean-Taittinger brothers, Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe, founded their own Premier Cru Champagne House fulfilling their vision of producing cuvees in the manner of great wines.

In this quest for finesse and elegance, Frerejean Frères Premier Cru Champagnes are aged for a minimum of five years in the cellar and treated with a gentle dosage, producing wines with a complexity to rival any branded champagne on the market. 

The gourmet champagne dinner is priced at £79 per person including tea or coffee. As these wine dinners are 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. 

To book call The Swan on 01787 247477 or email functions@theswantatlavenham.co.uk, for more details visit www.theswanatlavenham.co.uk; rooms are available from £260 B&B for two sharing.
