The four wines to be included this year are; Château Cheval Blanc 2004, Château Haut Brion 2004, Château Mouton Rothschild 2001 and Château Margaux 1998. Due to limited availability, these exclusive wines are to be served in first class on select routes for a limited period.
“Our aim has always been to surprise and delight our customers and they are in for a treat with this selection,” said Joost Heymeijer, senior vice president, inflight catering, Emirates. Special dishes have also been created to be paired with each wine from Emirates Vintage Collection. In keeping with its regionally inspired menus, a unique dish has been chosen for each route and wine.
In the first week of May, Emirates Vintage Collection was launched on a special flight to Paris with Château Cheval Blanc 2004. Customers enjoyed a surprise wine masterclass in the Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge. The special tasting gave customers the chance to savour Château Cheval Blanc 2004 and 2006.
