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

Ropiteau Frères Meursault, Burgundy, France, 2017

Meursault is an appellation south of Beaune, between Volnay and Puligny-Montrachet. Bright golden-green colour, a nose of great finesse with aromas of lime, hawthorn and butter notes, hazelnuts and honey. Magical balance between smoothness and freshness, with an impressive length.

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

Chris Ringland Shiraz Barossa Valley 2017

Aromas of rich Christmas pudding, chocolate raisins and brambleberry jam with hints of clove, cedar, black pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. The palate is rich and velvety with flavours of wild blackberries and smoky biscuit dough. Ripe and generous, yet the finish is fresh, lingering with dark chocolate and rhubarb compote.

Chateau de Briante Brouilly 2016
