Champagne, White or Red?
The following wines are now on offer on selected flights in First or Business Class:
Krug Vintage, Champagne, France, 2004
A blend of the most expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by a long ageing. Krug 2004 offers ginger, candied citrus and lemon meringue tart. The balanced palate shows notes of brioche, honey and citrus.
Lamblin & Fils Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume, Burgundy, France, 2017
From fathers to sons the Lamblin lineage has succeeded in the vineyards since 1690. The Fourchaume is located on the right bank, west facing the sunset. Nervy, crisp vitality of a top class Chablis with soft citrus and light hints of nectarine. Fine, dry, stony palate and a lengthy finish.
Château Montrose, St Estephe, Bordeaux France, 2006
Classic aromas of creamy blackberries, cassis, flowers, and crushed rocks. It is medium-bodied with a multilayered texture, sweeter, more finely tuned tannin than past vintages, and a powerful finish. There has been no compromise to the wine’s massive richness and density, but rather an emphasis on taming some of the huge tannins Montrose produces.
Domaine Chene Macon La Roche-Vineuse 'Prestige', Burgundy, France, 2018
Ripe fruits and acacia flowers. Palate is crunchy with ripe citrus fruits, sweet pineapple, mineral notes all nicely wrapped up by an unctuous finish.
Château Tanesse, Cadillac Côtes-de-Bordeaux, France, 2016
Located on a high hillock among Langoiran’s sloping vineyards, this Bordeaux charterhouse was built in the late 18th century by the Tanesse family. The 2016 has a dark, very deep red in colour. This wine offers very ripe black fruit aromas. Silky, mineral and velvety, it is also remarkably long in the mouth.
Chris Ringland Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia, 2017
Aromas of rich Christmas pudding, chocolate raisins and brambleberry jam with hints of clove, cedar, black pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. The palate is rich and velvety with flavours of wild blackberries and smoky biscuit dough. Ripe and generous, yet the finish is fresh, lingering with dark chocolate and rhubarb compote.
