Harden’s is hosting the inaugural dinner of the International Wine & Spirit Competition’s ‘Club Oenologique’ at Belgravia’s famous – and dazzling – Mosimann’s Club.
The evening will combine some of Bordeaux’s finest wines with a matching menu from the kitchen of renowned chef Anton Mosimann. Wines will be sourced from the great Chateau Malartic Lagravière and introduced by the property’s owner, Severine Bonnie.
Mosimann’s is one of the world’s finest private members’ clubs, its intimate dining rooms housed in an old Presbyterian chapel off Berkeley Square in Mayfair.
The grandeur of the place will suit perfectly the Bordeaux wines, with many on the evening’s list among the most revered vintages of the 1900s.
Although the club has never featured in Harden’s (which omits members-only establishments), it is one of the few members’ clubs that consistently inspires a high volume of feedback in our annual diners survey. Were it included, it would have had some of the highest ratings in London over the years.
