First Class

Olivier Leflaive Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 2013

The 1er Cru En Remilly is located just above the Grand Cru Chevalier Montrachet vineyard, from the neighbouring village of Puligny Montrachet. The stony limestone soils produce a classic Chardonnay nose offering stone fruit, mineral and floral notes. The well-crafted palate is expansive yet tight showing a touch of oak.

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.

The name Ricasoli has been associated with the Castle of Brolio since 1141. Colledilà is the name of the single vineyard of Sangiovese resulting in this Chianti Classico Gran Selezione. A wine that stands out for its complex structure and great modern elegance, with long and persistent aftertaste.
