Champagne, White or Red?

The following wines are now on offer on selected flights in First or Business Class:

First Class

Champagne Krug 2004

Vintage Krug is the blend of the most expressive wines from a single year, enhanced by a long ageing. The vintage expression is the music of the year captured by Krug; 2004 encapsulates luminous freshness evoking the sensation of early summer mornings in Champagne. The nose offers ginger, candied citrus and lemon meringue tart. The balanced palate shows notes of brioche, honey and citrus. Ideal as an aperitif and may also accompany a variety of fish dishes.

Olivier Leflaive Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 2013

Lamblin & Fils Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaumes 2016

The Lamblin Family knows Chablis’ vineyards like no other, after 300 years of experience and savoir faire passed down through the generations. Located on the west facing right bank of the Serein river, Fourchaume is the most renowned of the 1er Cru vineyards of Chablis and to many the finest. With a particularly flattering floral bouquet, the Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume shows beautiful Chardonnay aromas of ripe fruits, a mineral touch of flinty taste with a mouth-watering acidity.

Chateau Lynch Bages 2008

Chateau Lynch Bages 2008

Lynch Bages has been the fulcrum of the Cathay Pacific first class wine list for decades. The deep gravel over limestone soils deliver the quintessential claret style that Bordeaux lovers pine for; a nose of cassis, cigar box and fresh flowers leading to a softly textured and opulent palate offering sweet black fruits with notes of mint and cigar box.

Barone Ricasoli Colledilà Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2012

Business Class

Albert Bichot Viré-Clessé 2016

Viré-Clessé is a region of Burgundy just outside of Mâcon. Here, the vines are planted on limestone hills, perfect for Chardonnay. On the nose lemon and mango with floral notes intertwine. The palate has a fine minerality and richness from the gentle oak ageing received. Excellent as aperitif and also with fish and seafood dishes.

Louis Latour Macon-Lugny “Les Genievres” 2016

Chateau Pey La Tour Reserve 2015

Dating back to the 13th century, Château Pey La Tour is situated between Bordeaux and Saint-Emilion where it benefits from a near perfect terroir for high quality Merlot vines. Brimming with black fruits on the nose, the palate is generous offering ripe fruits underpinned by a subtle spice. Best with duck and beef dishes.

Stellenrust Douwe Steyn Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Luce Delle Vite Lucente 2015

In 1995, Robert Mondavi of California and Vittorio Frescobaldi of Tuscany joined hands to create the Luce estate. Lucente, is a blend of Sangievese and Merlot produced from the same Brunello di Montalcino vineyards. With a seductive bouquet of raspberries and blackberries, the palate is plush with supple tannins that are perfectly integrated into the wine's structure.

Chateau de Briante Brouilly 2016
