Clos Encounter
We recently hosted a remarkable tasting and lunch in Our Secret Garden.
In conversation with our friends at Krug, we recognised that our walled garden had many similarities with their exceptional walled vineyard - Clos d’Ambonnay - which arguably produces the ultimate Champagne.
Similar in size and aspect, both are totally private, and both are cultivated with the same meticulous attention-to-detail.
So we hatched a plan.
We invited a dozen guests to experience Our Secret Garden. A day that started with a detailed tour by head grower Jo Campbell and her team – with the open opportunity to taste everything we produce – straight out of the ground.
Olivier Krug then presented an impassioned tasting - en plein air - of the only four vintages ever made of this incredible Champagne. The first time this has ever been done, and the first time Olivier had tasted all four wines together himself!
Lunch was then prepared in the potting shed by Andrew and his team, and eaten under canvas in a handmade Indian gazebo in the middle of the garden.
This one-off meal started with The Secret Garden Salad - to celebrate an abundant summer. A dish that contained more than 25 varieties of vegetables, herbs and cresses.
Lightly smoked wild sea trout and grilled local Perthshire lamb then followed - both cooked with precision on our Big Green Egg.
The finale was a dessert that deployed nearly 1,000 of our tiny wild alpine strawberries – and which took a team of four nearly the whole morning to pick!
