As I remarked on your Instagram post: that wine is also on EK15 end of next week. Should go extremely well with the braised lamb on the menu.... ^. Looking forward to that!

What champagne is served in the DXB F lounge? Is it still Moet NV, or do they have a vintage as well?

Last time I was there in December they served Moet Grand Vintage - can't remember whether it was 2004, 2006 or 2008 though.

If you'd like to try some different types of Moet try the concourse B business lounge which has the Champagne Bar with 4 different types of Moet

Only 200 000 bottles produced according to the Chateau Margeux website.
Seems that m3red is making a good dent in that (although in another thread he tells us he is flying in a 2-class frame next, so there will be a bit left for us)

I had 2008 last time I was there and it certainly is not ready. Wonder why they didn't hold back Moet 2008 like they did for Dom.

Thanks everyone. How far is it from A to B? I can only see info about a train, but no estimated times. Guessing they have Moet NV, Grand Vintage, Rose, other?

10 mins at most.

Not sure of all the names but they have the NV, Rose and Nectar and the other one has some odd numbered name, like 1806 or something, but I may be completely misremembering. I usually have the Rose or Nectar

Makes a good mimosa if you can't stomach the champagne at 4am
