Enjoy a 60’s inspired Afternoon Tea, celebrating 50 years of Laurent -Perrier’s iconic Cuvee Rose, at Blenheim Palace until 30 September.
This summer visitors can discover a new menu in the Orangery Restaurant, created exclusively created by Searcys’ Culinary Director, chef Darren Deadman to mark the occasion. Using vintage vinyl records – ‘LPs’ – as place mats, the tea features 60s inspired treats such as “Prawn cocktail layered mille feuille” and “Spiced Pineapple upside down cake”. Guests are also invited to indulge in sweet treats in all shades of pink from the opulent Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Jelly to Strawberry macaroons and a Battenberg cake – all accompanied by a glass of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé.
Launched in 1968 in a unique shape inspired by the champagne bottles from the time of King Henri IV, Cuvée Rosé defied convention using innovative winemaking techniques, resulting in the conception of the UK’s most-loved rosé champagne. Using the highest quality Pinot Noir grapes, Cuvée Rosé is one of the few rosé champagnes that is made by leaving the grape juice in contact with the black grape skins to impart colour and flavour, instead of blending red and white wines. These pioneering processes gives Cuvée Rosé its highly expressive bouquet, extraordinary depth and freshness, and delicious red berry flavours that have made it a benchmark for all rosé champagnes. From its launch in 1968, Cuvée Rosé soon became a firm favourite and has remained so 50 years on.
