Award-winning bar restaurant Tippling Club collaborates with Telmont Champagne for Tippling Terrace, turning its alfresco terrace into an outdoor haven perfect for sipping champagne.
Not that we need a good reason or a specific venue to drink champagne, but Tippling Club’s new Tippling Terrace sounds like an excellent new place to down some sparkly. The award-winning bar and restaurant has recently partnered with Champagne Telmont to turn the narrow walkway along its front into a lush alfresco terrace where it can offer up some inventive bar snacks along with your Telmont champagne.
True to Telmont’s green cred – the Champagne house has set itself on a goal towards full environmental sustainability – the space is kitted out with sustainability in mind. This includes using empty bottles upcycled into candle holders and hanging décor, as well as very cleverly dining tables retrofitted with champagne buckets that allows melted ice to flow and water the plants in the planters lining the walkway.
As for food, the ‘Telmont Experience’ is a specially curated menu that combines various new snacks from the Tippling Club kitchen, and paired with a flight of three champagnes – the Telmont Réserve Brut, Telmont Réserve Rosé, as well as the Telmont Vinothèque 2012 (the lattermost prestige expression exclusive to Tippling Club).
These champagnes were chosen to highlight Telmont’s focus on terroir. For example, the Telmont Vinothèque 2012 showcases three key Champagne varietals – it’s an almost equal split of 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Meunier, and 34% Pinot Noir – mostly sourced from the Damery where Telmont is based, but also a smattering of grapes from Barbonne, Fontette, Les Riceys, Neuville, and others. More interesting is that this particular expression eschews the use of malolactic fermentation (a winemaking technique commonly used to convert malic acid into lactic acid for a creamier mouthfeel), instead allowing the grapes’ natural acidity to shine through in the wine.
Like the champagne, the snacks themselves are specially created to convey the concept of provenance. Featuring Tippling Club chef-owner Ryan Clift’s emphasis on ultra-progressive culinary techniques each snack is a work of art. These decadent bites include the savoury Smoked eel beignet with beetroot, yoghurt, freeze-dried raspberry, or the Roasted corn chawanmushi, crab, ikura, preserved truffle.
In addition these dishes employ ingredients that are procured directly from sustainable producers and suppliers, the Japanese amberjack in the Nori popadum, cured hamachi, yuzu & avocado, black radish, for example.
The Telmont Experience – which comes as a set menu featuring five snacks and a flight of three champagnes – is available at Tippling Terrace at the price of S$130++ per person. Reservations are required at the Tippling Terrace and can be made online, by phone at +65 6475 2217 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tippling Club is located at 38 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088461.
