Robert Parker Grand World tour – 100 Point Gala Dinner

Robert Parker Grand World tour – 100 Point Gala Dinner

Two wines from the Roederer family portfolio were featured at Robert Parker’s “Gala Hedonist’s” or “100 Point wine” Dinner hosted on Friday 27th February at two-Michelin starred restaurant The Ledbury, London.

The black-tie dinner featured eight wines, including Roederer-owned Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande 1982, with Cristal 2002 en magnum as an aperitif. A place at the dinner cost £1,800.

Attended by guests who had flown in from across the world expressly for the event, the dinner for 55 was a sell-out, offering a rare opportunity to dine with one of – if not the most influential wine critic today, whose palate and judgement forged the reputation of some the world’s most famous wines.

The dinner was preceded the day before by a two-hour masterclass for 500 guests, hosted at the Royal Courts of Justice, with tickets costing £450 a head.
