Launching 27 November, the magnificent Hotel Le Bristol Paris is hosting the first-ever Dom Pérignon dining room. Le Bristol’s triple Michelin-starred chef Eric Fréchon will be partnering with Dom Pérignon’s Cellar Master Vincent Chaperon to bring guests the most glamorous dining experience in the City of Light. When the talents of an iconic chef and a legendary Cellar Master combine, the results are nothing short of exquisite. The experience will be offered through 18 February 2024 at €1,200 per person, by reservation only.
The Dom Pérignon Journey
Together, Executive Chef of Le Bristol Paris, Eric Fréchon, and Chef de Cave of Dom Pérignon, Vincent Chaperon, are bringing to life a virtuosic vision designed for 2–6 guests to embark on a sublime adventure through meticulously crafted pairings of Dom Pérignon’s best-in-class millesimes and the pinnacle of French gastronomy.
A bespoke ‘bulle’, or bubble, has been created for the experiential journey, divided into two sections — one for the effervescent prelude and the other for the main act. Inhabiting the center of the hotel’s courtyard garden, the two private spaces embody an avant-garde visual manifestation of the elegant contrast between the light and dark of Le Bristol Paris’ luminous atmosphere and Dom Pérignon’s more mysterious universe. In a sensational trompe l’oeil effect, one-way mirrors preserve the privacy of participants while creating an alluring effect from the exterior: a place to see without being seen.
The journey begins in the immersive bar, the only one of its kind in the world, where exceptional cuvées , normally only offered by the bottle, are served by the glass, and accompanied by a tantalising selection of small bites.
A brief interlude and a shift of scenery place guests around the dinner table, where the intensity gently rises with the presentation of an exclusive menu. From caviar de Sologne and Dom Pérignon Vintage 2013 to pan- seared wild turbot with white truffle and the remarkable Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 Plénitude 2 cuvée, each course is crafted in outstanding detail to highlight the poetry that occurs when the creations of a decorated Chef meet the cultivated nuances of the world’s finest Champagnes.
For a soft and delicate descent from this excursion, black truffle crème glacée served with a hazelnut emulsion and gianduja chocolate is presented along with a final glass of bubbly,— Dom Pérignon Vintage 2002 Plénitude 2 cuvée, which taste like falling stars, an apt metaphor for this exceptional, limited-time-only experience — to catch and cherish before it fades away.
The Le Bristol Paris and Dom Pérignon experience will be offered from November 27th, 2023 to February 18th, 2024 at €1,200 per person, by reservation only. Le Bar by Dom Pérignon will be located in the Palace Garden Tuesday to Saturday, from 6:00 p.m. with reservation (upon availability).
