Champagne, White or Red?

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

First Class

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

Domaine Roux, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Macherelles, Burgundy, France, 2017

Aromas of mayflower, acacia, and honeysuckle blend with verbena and hazelnut and fresh butter. The palate is mineral, its fleshiness is matched by mellowness, and both are equally persistent.

Chateau Lynch Bages 2008

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.

Barone Ricasoli Colledilà Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2012

Business Class

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.

Louis Latour Macon-Lugny “Les Genievres” 2016

Cave d’Azé Mäcon Villages Clocher, Burgundy, France, 2017

Mâconnais is the most southerly terroir of the Burgundy winegrowing region and benefits from warmer climate. Intense and subtle nose of mango, pineapple, hazelnut and grilled almond. The palate is fresh and elegant with notes of citrus and white fruits. Well balanced with a lasting minerality.

Stellenrust Douwe Steyn Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Schubert Pinot Noir, Wairarapa, New Zealand 2016

In spite of variable weather, Kai Schubert and his partner Marion Deimling managed to produce a graceful Pinot Noir laden with elegant red and black fruits. Supported by finely balanced acidity and deft oak handling, the silky palate of this luscious wine exits gracefully with a spiced red berry adieu.

Chateau de Briante Brouilly 2016
