Champagne, White or Red?

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

First Class

Deutz Cuvée Amour de Deutz, 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.

Olivier Leflaive Saint-Aubin 1er Cru 2013

Château de Santenay St Aubin "En Vesvau" 2016

In keeping with its noble heritage, this luxuriously styled Saint-Aubin is rich and savoury with nutty honey-vanilla nuances. Elegant acidity and a fine viscous palate ensure this wine will compliment a wide range of inflight cuisines.

Chateau Lynch Bages 2008

Chateau Lynch-Bages 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

Fritz Haag, Riesling Mosel 2018

Weingut Fritz Haag sits in the heart of the Middle Mosel, the first documented mention of the estate came in 1605. A lively, mineral-driven Riesling, starting with a touch of white peach and unwinding to deliver a mix of floral aromas, apple, citrus and pineapple. Well-rounded, with a creamy texture and a mouthwatering finish.

Louis Latour Macon-Lugny “Les Genievres” 2016

Cave d’Azé Mäcon Villages Clocher Burgundy 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

Vasse Felix 'Filius' Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2016

Deep, savoury Cabernet characters of blackcurrant, dark cherry, earth, cedar with a spicy complexity from the Malbec. Luscious and juicy upfront, dark berry fruit with beef stock and dried woody herbs. There is a wonderful length of flavour as the palate transitions to a fine, textural and dusty drying finish, in classical Cabernet style.

Chateau de Briante Brouilly 2016
