In­dulge with wine and spir­its mer­chant

over an evening of cham­pagne, wines and cho­co­late with master choco­latier As the sun sets on 10 Oc­to­ber, Sus­sex Cel­lar in Lon­don will kick-start the spirited evening with cham­pagne, fol­lowed by a spe­cial four-course din­ner de­signed around cho­co­late, which is rightly cel­e­brated for its so­phis­ti­cated flavours. Din­ers can look for­ward to a 2011 St Joseph Blanc, R&L Le­gras cham­pagne, 1983 Fon­seca Vin­tage Port and nine-year-old Haitian rum from Berry Bros & Rudd’s own se­lec­tion. The evening will cul­mi­nate with a cho­co­late-tast­ing ses­sion, where Rope her­self will help re­veal flavours that de­light all the senses.

HOW TO PAIR YOUR WINE Not all cheeses go well with wine, as stronger ones can over­power the tongue, di­min­ish­ing the rich­ness and bal­anced flavours of a good wine. For a fab­u­lous tast­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, pair the cheese care­fully – a softer, milder cheese like Brie is a fan­tas­tic op­tion. With Chi­nese food, wines that have high acid­ity, lower al­co­hol and rel­a­tively un­der­stated flavours and aro­mas are the best match, like Ries­ling or Pinot Noir, for ex­am­ple.
