An evening at the Savile Club with Michel Prunier

Posted by admin in Restaurants/wine and food | Leave a comment

An unexpected – but very enjoyable – evening of good wine, good food, and good company at the Savile Club on Wednesday evening. I did not have high hopes for a nearly 20-year old wine from an unassuming Côte de Beaune village and a likeable but not long-term vintage.

However, the Prunier Clos du Val retained a core of pretty Pinot fruit with softly-spoken tannins and an afterglow of aged flavours on the finish.

Former Savilians such as Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger, Evelyn Waugh, and H. G. Wells would doubtless have approved.
