Last month saw a magnificent Michelin showcase for the launch of the spectacular new Longueville wine cellar. Renowned Relais & Châteaux chef Michael Caines cooked up a gourmet storm for delighted guests at Longueville Manor to launch the hotel’s 2018 Guest Chef Series. The Michelin-starred chef created a collaborative tasting menu with Longueville Manor’s Executive Head Chef Andrew Baird. Speaking about the series, Longueville Manor owner Malcolm Lewis told us:
‘At Longueville we are passionate about food, sustainability and sharing ideas and we were therefore delighted to welcome this amazing chef. As well as delicious dishes, our series will demonstrate Relais & Châteaux’s commitment to local cuisine.’
Guests were also treated to a preview of the Manor’s new wine cellar which boasts over 4000 bottles, including a number of extremely rare varieties. The stunning cellar provides optimum storage conditions to perfectly care for the wine, inclusive of insulation, lighting and temperature control systems. Their exceptional wine collection now offers huge temptation to oenophiles. Of special mention is a collection of Le Montrachet and Bienvenues-Batard-Montrachet from Domaine Ramonet, including vintages from 1986 to 2010. The Magnums and bottles of Musigny Grand Cru from the famous Comte Georges De Vogue 2001 are also much sought after. Alongside, guests will see an array of Jeroboams and Double Magnums including a Jeroboam of 1988 Bollinger R.D Champagne and a Double Magnum of 1953 Chateau Gruaud-Larose.
