FIN celebrates French wine at Sofitel Sukhumvit
FIN – Fabulous Is Needed – is hosting an exclusive wine dinner featuring the wines of world famous French winemaker couple Marjorie and Stephane Gallet from Roc des Anges in Roussillon at the Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit’s signature Restaurant L’Appart on Mar. 7.
The Gallets will present an impressive range of six organic wines matched by Benjawan Wisootsat, managing director of FIN, with a fabulous six-course menu created by executive chef Aurélien Poirot.
Marjorie Gallet has become the darling of the Michelin three-star set in France including Pierre Gagnaire, Guy Savoy and Le Pre Catalan with her spectacular array of Domaine Le Roc des Anges wines.
At the age of 23, she persuaded friends of her parents to invest in vineyards she had fallen in love close to the border with Spain. She renamed the estate Roc des Anges (angel’s rock) in honour of the white, quartz-veined soil. She moved to the Roussillon, where she met her husband, Stephan Gallet, who happened to be the winemaker at Mas Amiel. They now run their own estate using strict organic and bio-dynamic farming principles from beautiful vineyards which include some old Carignan vines planted 108 years ago.
The wine dinner will be from 7pm and costs B5,999 net per person.
Two days later, L’Appart will host a wine tasting of 33 wines selected by the Gallets, including champagne and sauternes, alongside a wide selection of great party food created by Poirot and some French music. The tasting will be from 6pm to 9pm on Mar. 9 and costs B1,999 net per person.
