Chapoutier creates wines for Le Gavroche

23rd January, 2012 by Rupert Millar

Chef Michel Roux jr and winemaker Michel Chapoutier have collaborated on two wines exclusively for Roux’s London restaurant Le Gavroche.

The red and white wines are farmed on some of Chapoutier’s organic and biodynamic vineyards in the Ardeche and Languedoc regions and will only be available at the chef’s two-starred Michelin restaurant in Mayfair.

The red is a Syrah/Grenache blend from the Languedoc and the white a Viognier from the volcanic soils of the Ardeche’s Coirons plateau.

Roux said: “I have always wanted to make a Le Gavroche wine; something that would complement our food and reflect the great heritage of our restaurant.

“I knew, that if we ever did get round to it, Chapoutier would definitely be the man for the job and I think everyone who tastes our wines will agree that we’ve managed to create something pretty special.”

The Le Gavroche red will be priced at £34 a bottle and the white at £32.

    Le Gavroche is a wonderful experience and the food is exceptional, far better than most top London restaurants. Also the rumour that Michel spends a lot of time at Le Gavroche as opposed to putting his name to a restaurant and kicking back is true. He appeared from the kitchen mid-meal and introduced himself to the tables individually. Not only is he a staggeringly talented chef, he’s a thoroughly nice man who topped off a fantastic night!
