In the heart of the City of Lights sits the pinnacle of Parisian elegance and its first Palace hotel, Le Bristol Paris. A fount of luxury, it has premiered the first-of-its-kind Dom Pérignon dining room where exceptional champagne and delectable French fare enchant. Le Bristol’s triple-Michelin-starred Chef Eric Frechon and Dom Pérignon’s cellar master, Vincent Chaperon, joined hands, bringing about an epicurean feast of delights for lovers of cuvée and cuisine alike.
Orchestrated to regale two to six guests at a time, this immersive dining journey carries one through masterly curated pairings of Dom Pérignon’s best-in-class millesimes and French delicacies. To augment this excellent fusion of gastronomy and oenology, a bespoke bulle (bubble) has been constructed in the centre of the hotel’s courtyard garden. The innovative masterpiece is divided into two avant-garde spaces, a fancy bar and a modernist dining room, both dressed in one-way mirrors to preserve the privacy of guests. An exciting complement to the evening’s lavish affair, the bulle is a place to see without being seen.
The evening unfolds in Le Bristol’s gem, Le Bar, where its distinctive touch sets it apart from its contemporaries. In this renowned bar, remarkable Dom Pérignon cuvee typically served solely by the bottle is instead offered by the glass alongside an assortment of nibbles. With grace, the prelude primes guests for the gourmet bliss to come.
In a shift of frame, guests are seated for a decadent dinner of a 6-course spread. The especial menu, served only for guests at the Dom Pérignon dining room, perfectly pairs with selected champagne. Guests are enticed with caviar de Sologne paired with Dom Pérignon Vintage 2013. Following suit is a dish of sea scallops marinated in curry oil and “Perle Blanche” oysters with Dom Pérignon Rose Vintage 2009. Another signature item is pan-seared wild turbot with black truffle paired with the extraordinary Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 Plénitude 2 bubbly.
The dining extravaganza comes to a close with a sweet dessert: a black truffle crème glacée plated with roasted hazelnut emulsion and “Gianduja” chocolate sauce with a sip of Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 Plénitude 2 for a delicate final touch.
A fated alchemy of two maestros, Le Bristol Paris and Dom Perignon is simply a love letter to the French gastronomy – a memorable culinary experience to be relished.
