Yannick Alléno to be Chef for the Fête de la Fleur 2017
The twice 3-starred chef Yannick Alléno has been chosen as the chef to create the dinner for the prestigious Fête de la Fleur, which will take place on Wednesday 21 June 2017 at Château Malartic-Lagravière.
This year 1,500 professionals from the wine and spirits industry will be invited to the Fête de la Fleur, organised by the Commanderie du Bontemps Médoc et Graves, Sauternes et Barsac, which will also mark the 20th anniversary of the Bonnie family’s ownership of Château Malartic-Lagravière and will close the 19th Vinexpo Bordeaux.
The chef, who is also a wine-aficionado, will prepare an exclusive menu to match some of the most sumptuous Bordeaux Classified Growths, including those of Château Malartic-Lagravière.
ALLÉNO AND CHÂTEAU MALARTIC-LAGRAVIÈRE: A PERFECT MATCH
Yannick Alléno and the Bonnie family, owners of Château Malartic-Lagravière, have in fact been working together for two years, driven by the same quest for excellence, purity of taste, mastery of technique and enrichment of terroir.
This long-term partnership has led the Michelin-starred chef and the Bonnie family, owners of this Graves classified wine, to think deeply about food and wine pairings for the chef’s culinary creations and the various vintages produced by Château Malartic-Lagravière.
