Win a bottle of Champagne Lanson Green Label

GreenLabel

 

POLO & Lifestyle the London Magazine have teamed up with Champagne Lanson to give one of our readers a bottle of Champagne Lanson’s new organic Green Label.

Lanson Green Label Champagne is produced using organic grapes grown exclusively on an estate vineyard at Verneuil, in the heart of the Marne valley.

Committed to organic and biodynamic cultivation for many years, the vineyard is dedicated to protecting the ecosystem and respects the balance between soil, plants and humans. It is part of The House of Lanson’s overall approach to respecting the environment and follows a strict ecological logic – the bottles are lightweight and the labels made of recycled paper.

Inspired by nature, Lanson has chosen to combine the colour green with its distinctive emblem, the Lanson cross.

Lanson Green Label Organic Champagne expresses the qualities and uniqueness of its terroir to the full.

After three years in the cellars, the Champagne is elegant, very aromatic and characterised by its mineral purity.

To the eye, fine and persistent bubbles give life to the rich amber gold.

Equestrian Gift

Riedel Horse Decanter

Riedel

 

Riedel Crystal, the 261 year-old global leader in varietal-specific glassware (where form follows function as its wineglass shapes are created to enhance the experience and taste of a specific grape variety), also create stunning mouth-blown decanters. The sophisticated equine-inspired Riedel Horse Decanter stands at an impressive 23-5/8 inches tall with an equine profile decorating its interior – a true showstopper.Horse Decanter Kopie

Designed by 11th-generation Riedel Crystal CEO Maximilian J. Riedel, the Horse decanter was inspired not only by the Chinese Zodiacback in 2014, but also by the famous Royal Lipizzans, the rare, aristocratic breed, whose line, like the Riedel line, resided in Austria.

More than an object of beauty, the decanter is also a powerful tool, much like the energy and performance embodied by the Lipizzan breed. First bred by the Hapsburgs in the 16th century, the Lipizzan represent the prime equestrian specimen of the Baroque era and today remain symbols of pomp and circumstance throughout Europe. The decanter’s colour, defined by a single stripe of black crystal that runs the decanter’s length and outlines its interior equine profile, also takes its inspiration from the Lipizzan breed who are born black and turn white as they grow into adults.

Riedel_1

 

I have long been fascinated by horses, both as animals of strength and performance as well as of elegance, in addition to the role they have played for generations in cultures throughout the world,” comments Maximilian. “With the Riedel Horse decanter, I strove to create a functional and powerful wine tool that simultaneously reflects the innate beauty, sophistication, and authority of a horse.

The decanter’s concave profile also aids in wine’s decanting process. After pouring wine into the decanter, shaking the vessel until a thin layer of bubbles forms helps to oxygenate the wine, dramatically improving its aeration and the flavour profile of the given grape varietal. As it opens the wine by “charging” it, the Riedel Horse performs a traditionally time-consuming task at high speed, while remaining regal and refined like the Austrian Lipizzans.

Culinary Secret

tomeurest

 

Located at the luxury boutique hotel Sant Jaume on the Balearic Island Palma de Mallorca.

A classic Mallorcan cuisine concept where product and ingredients from the Balearic Islands take centre stage to showcase the main dishes of Majorca with a special nod to the city of Palma and its surrounding area. Tomeu’s objective is for “even the most local to become universal”. The restaurant roots have become a starting point to explore and discover through taste and our other senses.

mesa_del_chef_final Kopie

The creative team at the restaurant is led by Tomeu Caldentey, the first Majorcan chef to be awarded a Michelin star.

At Tomeu service is as important as the cooking, participation and dedication to reintroducing the value of a restaurant’s role by reviving the conventions and rhythms of its great past and adapting them to the modern day.

Also they have a wine selection that reaffirms their commitment to the same mission as the cuisine’s. A journey through aromatic notes and memories that begins in Mallorca and the Balearic Islands and then explores the most representative wine-making areas and their most characteristic varieties with the ultimate aim of harmoniously marrying with the dish.

BARTOMEU MACERADOS & CO.

At BARTOMEU the tradition and artistry of an age-old technique: maceration. At the restaurant they only use natural products and the best distillates in this process. By macerating they can again offer classic cocktails with a personal touch and a surprising range of colours. Infusion, maceration, memory: the spirit of a vermouth bar combined with the elegance of a cocktail lounge.

Reportage Hedonism Wines

Yevgeny Chichvarking business philosophy is a team of perfectionists,  ”we wanted to create the leading wine shop in the world and as such, we have made no compromises in terms of quality”.

The inspiration to name it Hedonism Wines was inspired from the early Greek philosophic schools where it was believed that pleasure was the only intrinsic good. We believe that there are many things which one should enjoy in life and with the word “hedonism” frequently used in tasting notes wine is certainly one of them.

With a passion for Hedonism project our extremely friendly and knowledgeable team understand how to make our guests feel welcome and If we do not have the bottle you are after, we will try our very hardest to source it for you”.

With deliveries within one hour in central London, the wine specialists are also available to come to you should you need their advice and expertise.

Reportage Hedonism Wines

One of the very interesting room’s at the wine shop is the one downstairs which Yevgeny Chichvarkin had the idea for it to design it with different hands on the wall and it places his favourite wine from America, California.

Reportage Hedonism Wines

Yevgeny Chichvarkin’s life philosophy is ”enjoying life, happiness, fun, pleasure, like the word says, hedonism”.
