Also in town this week was Glenelly’s chief winemaker Luke O’Cuinneagain, who hosted a lunch at 67 Pall Mall with Arthur de Lencquesaing, grandson of Glenelly’s owner, May Eliane de Lencquesaing, herself the former owner of Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Among the wine writers in attendance was an ebullient Steven Spurrier.

Amid lavish lobster thermidor tarts and hearty venison, we tasted through recent vintages from the Stellenbosch estate including its newest addition – a 100% Cabernet Franc, top red Lady May, and an oaked and unbaked Chardonnay. We were also treated to a dreamy glass of Pichon Lalande 2011.
