The Bangalore Wine Club organized another high quality event, bringing today the world’s largest-selling champagne, Moet et Chandon, in an evening of style and elegance at the Leela Palace Bangalore on January 22nd. The Black & White Evening with Moet was a big hit with its members, all of whom came dressed for the occasion in shades of black and white reports, Ruma Singh.

The Leela Palace put together a menu perfectly paired with two champagnes, the Moet et Chandon Brut Imperial and the Rose, as well as two wines from Chile’s big-selling Casa Laspostolle — Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. Interesting combinations like Gateaux of Gravadlax, Keta caviar, Arugula, maple vinegar with Moet et Chandon Brut Imperial, Chipotle chili glazed free range chicken breast with Palace truffle risi bisi/ Mediterranean filo pouch, sun dried tomato tapenade with Palace truffle risi bisi with the Casa Lapostolle Merlot, and a delicious dessert: Sable of fresh strawberry, Vanilla mascarpone and white almond ice cream with Moët et Chandon Rosé (with its notes of sweet red fruit), were much appreciated over the long, leisurely dinner.
Casa Lapostolle, a French-Chilean collaboration, is owned in part by the descendants of the family that owns the Grand Marnier liqueur. Their winemaker is none other than Michel Rolland, a name wine lovers around the world, including India, are familiar with.
