$3000.00 per bottle Carbon champagne is Official champagne of F1
I have had a lot of fun with the Williams F1 team. Especially once when it carried the red maple leaf of Canada part of the logo of the Canadian beer company Labatt’s, those were great racing years and the CEO of Labbat’s and I had a lot of fun with Frank Williams and his formula one team.
So I am delighted having tasted Veuve Clicquot champagne at the Ritz Carlton Toronto, with the owner of Charton Hobbs who look after both brands in Canada and enter the paddocks where Dom Pérignon will be flowing for the Williams F1 team.
The partnership will lead to an exclusive tasting event at the Silverstone circuit on the Saturday of the British Grand Prix weekend.
“The event will see a selection of Dom Pérignon vintages being tasted by VIP guests along with an explanation of each vintage by Richard Geoffrey, Creator of Vintages at Dom Pérignon. Each vintage will also correspond with a key moment in Williams’ history, with a host of former Williams World Champions in attendance.”
What is cool is that some of the drivers in attendance I had the late Sid Oland CEO of Labbat’s sponsor. I am not one to drink champagne on special occasions, anytime is good for me, but this is one very special occasion and a great champagne one of my favorites to celebrate Williams and Dom Pérignon history. I will toast to Sid Oland who was as passionate about formula one racing allowing me to share in the special moments that make up part of the history of the Williams F1 racing team we shared with Frank Williams.
After receiving his chef training at Mumbai’s prestigious Oberoi Hotel, Vineet Bhatia immigrated to England. His work at Zaika then made him Europe’s first chef of Indian cuisine to be awarded a Michelin star.
How do you begin this exotic journey into the world of Chef Vaneet Bhatia and the King of fizz Dom Perignon? The women I know who are alluringly spellbinding and can enslave any man with their teasing sorcery with a wave of their hand as if it was a magic wand, start with a bottle of Dom Perignon and a luxury bath.
Karl Lagerfeld showcased his collection of Chanel Paris to Bombay in the splendor of a Indian Palace he also did a photo shoot for Dom Perignon. My dear friend from London Michelin awarded Chef Vaneet Bhatia was appointed to create a Indian dining experience for the King of fizz Dom Perignon. Fashion and Champagne go hand and hand, after all LVMH owns the champagne brand Dom Pérignon and beauty brands such as Louis Vuitton and Guerlain.
This has been the first time that Dom Perignon selected Indian food to feature for it’s Dom Perignon affair. Why not, if Karl Lagerfeld is doing it at Chanel and you have a Chef such as Vaneet Bhatia. To experience the food of Chef Bhatia is without question being on a magical train of old the Orient Express with provocatively clad women with a yen for food. It is an adventure. He is the King of Spice. He is constantly creating. Inventing. The food is a fantasy of taste. I have known the Chef for twenty years or so and all I can say, when it comes to Indian foods Chef Vaneet Bhatia rules. If you have not been to his restaurant in London Rasoi on Lincoln Street I urge you go, life is too short to pass this up. Bravo Chef. The adventure never stops for My Name is Khan.
