Champagne, White or Red?
The following wines are now on offer on selected flights in First or Business Class:
Deutz Cuvée Amour de Deutz, Champagne, France, 2009
The Cuvée Amour Deutz is a blanc de blanc Champagne mostly selected from Grand Cru vineyards from Avize and Mesnil-sur-Oger. The 2009 reveals a wonderful complexity. Aromas of apple pastries, baked apples and sun-gorged yellow fruit mingle with subtle notes of white flowers. The wine is silky and velvety on entry. Lovely vinosity, full and round on the palate, making a harmonious whole. Salinity and elegant minerality complement the wine’s overall balance.
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.
Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac, Bordeaux, 2008
Château Lynch-Bages is a fifth growth as deemed by the Bordeaux Classification of 1855, that has been considered very superior to its ranking. Situated on the outskirts of Pauillac, overlooking the Gironde estuary, its 100 hectares of vines are planted on deep gravel soils. The vintage 2008 displays nice aromas of cranberry, dried floral notes, and tobacco. Its excellent tannin structure is underlined by intensity, depth, and structure.
Deutz Brut Classic, Champagne, France, NV
Deutz Brut Classic is a fine multi vintage Champagne, blended from the classic grape varietals - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, benefitting from long ageing before release. Citrus, apple and biscuit on the nose with a palate reminiscent of lemon meringue, honey and light red fruits. The perfect aperitif and excellent with light fish and poultry dishes.
Babich 'Black Label' Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand, 2018
Aromas of blackcurrant and citrus with white flowers, minty herbals and a touch of smoke. The palate show mandarin, red apples, passionfruit to lime, lemon and grassy notes. Tropical and textured with freshness and length.
Jacques Charlet St Amour La Victorine, France, 2017
Located in Southern Burgundy since 1711 Jacques Charlet produces wines that reveal the best climats. Slightly purple color, the attack is round, supple, fleshy and concentrated, with beautiful velvety tannins. The finish is powerful, marked by fruity aromas and a touch of black licorice.
