Champagne, White or Red?

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

First Class

Krug Vintage, Champagne, France, 2004

The story of the year 2004, captured by Krug. With harmonious tension and elegant radiance, Krug 2004 reveals the vibrant story of a fresh year – so much so that the House chose to give it the nickname “Luminous Freshness”. The nose offers ginger, candied citrus and lemon meringue tart. The balanced palate shows notes of brioche, honey and citrus.

Domaine Au Pied du Mont Chauve, Chassagne-Montrachet 'En Pimont', Burgundy, France, 2017

Complex nose combining fresh brioche and lively aromas such as green lemon and grapefruit. With a straight and very clean mouth, this is a refreshing wine with pure minerality.

Château Lynch-Bages, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2000

This Lynch-Bages from the legendary 2000 vintage has all the classic Pauillac aromatics of dark currants, lead pencil, tobacco leaf, and spice. A classic wine with finely integrated tannins that still delivers plenty of sweet fruit and a great long finish.

Business Class

Billecart-Salmon Brut, Champagne, France, NV

Light, fine and harmonious champagne. It displays elegant fine bubbles, nose with brioche and ripe fruits aromas. A fine and balanced freshness followed by a citrus fruits finish.

Te Mata Estate Vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, 2019

Aromas of pineapple, lemongrass and white nectarine give way to a palate of mango, intense passionfruit, gooseberry and just a hint of dill and Thai mint. Ripe sub-tropical fruit, textured, integrated and with refreshing balance and acidity.

Ripe black fruit aromas on the nose, with a silky, velvety finish with pure clean minerality.
