The Season presented by Laurent-Perrier at The Langham, Sydney

The Season has started – definitely Spring Racing, but also party season. And for the entire month of November, recently re-launched The Langham in Sydney is celebrating with Laurent-Perrier and a range of champagne-centric events.

During November The Season, presented by Laurent-Perrier, will offer a 2-course Melbourne Cup lunch with prizes for sartorial excellence, daily Champagne Tiffin Afternoon Teas and a Champagne Degustation Dinner, as well as live music from Thursdays to Saturdays throughout November.

For the horse-inclined, the Spring Racing action will be broadcast live from Flemington from 2-9 November 2013.

At the launch of The Season, champagne lovers were greeted by a stunning spring floral display in shades of pink and white from Pearsons Florist, a fountain filled with bottles of Laurent-Perrier Brut, both Laurent-Perrier Brut and Vintage on free flow, and extravagant cheese and oyster stations.

The oyster station
With two varieties of both Pacific (Coffin Bay and Hastings River) and Sydney rock (Port Stephens and Forster) oysters, a full set of condiments and dressings, and a smiling shucker, the oyster station was my favourite place to be on the night.

Sydney rock oysters
While the yuzu pearls were new to me, the champagne vinaigrette with a touch of chives was so irresistibly divine with the Sydney rocks, I may have visited the oyster station more than a handful of times.

The cheese station
I may also have visited the cheese station a few times, for gorgeously stinky washed rind and a blue that was simply divine with real honeycomb and crackers.

Also on offer every day during November in The Langham's Globe Bar and Brasserie, a glass of Laurent-Perrier Brut and three freshly shucked Sydney rock oysters with the aforementioned champagne vinaigrette for $25.

To mark the end of The Season, a five-course Champagne Degustation dinner, served with matching wine or champagne, will be held on Wednesday, 27 November 2013 at the opulent Galileo Restaurant.
