The week in pictures

Earlier that day Lucy headed to Spring at Somerset House, run by Skye Gyngell, who was this week voted the Ayala SquareMeal Female Chef of the Year, for a lovely lunch hosted by Clarence Dillon Wines, led by effervescent managing director, Gerard Blanloeil. We love it when a wine label matches our surroundings…

Also on hand to talk us through the wines was Clarence Dillon’s operational director, Nathalie Bassot, who explained that the Clarendelle wine brand came about in 2005 to offer consumers more affordable expressions of Bordeaux that are ready to drink – first growth Haut-Brion also falls under the Clarence Dillon umbrella.

Over lunch we tried an array of Clarendelle wines including the zippy, Semillon-led Clarendelle Blanc and 2016 red expressions from St-Emilion and the Médoc daringly paired with wild halibut.
