The week in pictures

ygayThe rewards of patience were proven this week at a lavish lunch at the St Pancras Clock Tower to celebrate the launch of Castillo Ygay Blanco 1986. In honour of the release – just the 11th white the estate has released since it was founded in 1852, Roger Jones of The Harrow at Little Bedwyn whipped up a fishy feast that included smoked salmon and goat’s cheese, octopus and caviar and turbot and black truffle in a chicken broth.

Just 8,000 bottles of the wine have been released, with the UK receiving a mere 500. Represented in the UK by MMD, a bottle will set you back £450.

Also poured at the lunch was Castillo Ygay’s 2007 red, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Mazuelo, modelled expertly here by export director João Machete Pereira.
