Savour Caviar with Champagne at Belmond Grand Hotel Europe

At the heart of St Petersburg for the past 140 years, the iconic Belmond Grand Hotel Europe has partnered with renowned Champagne house Dom Perignonto offer a new caviar pairing experience in its acclaimed Caviar Bar & Restaurant.

In collaboration with Alexey Mitrofanov, Dom Perignon’s ambassador to Russia, the hotel has developed gastronomic matches based on the undertones of the vintages and to emphasise certain flavour characteristics of caviar. Guests can choose from a list of 12 exclusive Dom Perignon labels and will be guided through the process by a sommelier who will advise on the best caviar and Champagne match based on the taste preference of each individual.

Highlights include seven vintages of white and rosé grapes, as well as the prized Dom Perignon P2 vintage 1998, notable for its strong, full and warm aroma with notes of honeysuckle, citrus, and roasted almonds. A total of 15 caviar varieties are complemented by signature dish Egg in Egg; eggs are blended with roe to create a truffle-flavoured scrambled egg that is topped with the rare golden Iranian albino Oscietra caviar. www.belmond.com
