The Chateau Montrose was exceptionally well paired with the Lamb shank! Highly recommended.

I looked at the wine list for my flight today and my reaction was meh. However, as someone that mostly drinks white Burgundy the 2015 Giaconda Chardonnay on BKK-DXB currently is soooo good. One of the best wines Ive ever drunk on a flight. Bravo EK wine buyers, this is why I fly EK F.

Just looked at wine list for SYD-DUB in 1st in Oct and showing only one red wine, a $25 Aust Shiraz that would be a let down in Business. Does this sound likely (1 red and a cheap one at that)? I’m very much hoping the list is updated before we fly. Thanks

The full menu often doesn’t get loaded until 1-2 months before, there should be four or so red options in F but some shared with J. There will be at least one French red added (possibly more than one), it’s very rare not to see a Bordeaux or similar in EK F.

Here is a quote from TheBuyer in an article entitled: Why the new Dom Prignon 2012 is a classic vintage in every sense
"On the palate it is quite clear there is one word energy. The attack is rounder, welcoming but very quickly it is starting to vibrate and then explodes in your mouth with a surge of effervescence and tonicity. Focused by acidic and bitter notes, the finish brings a penetrating tautness marked by ginger, tobacco and toasted accents.

Technical details:
Pinot Noir 51 % / Chardonnay 49%

The article link is:
Dom Prignon 2012: is this new vintage worth buying?

I will be happy to taste on my flight from IAD to DXB in F in May!
As a champagne lover/collector the Dom 2012 is def the better "recent" Dom excluding the 08. The 08 is great but becoming rare which is why EK has. moved on to the 2012...but 12 although still young, seems like will age even better than the 08 in the next few years!

Guessing my chances from/to SFO next week are slim to none. Showing '05 d'Yquem though, which was not on the route when I flew in June or July. Always interesting which routes get the good stuff.
