Santé! Cathay Pacific First Class cellar welcomes Château Montrose

Published on : Friday, December 7, 2018

Cathay Pacific’s award-winning First Class wine cellar is soon to be enriched by the
airline’s new partnership with Château Montrose – one of Bordeaux’s leading
wineries. The partnership was unveiled during a spectacular wine dinner in Hong
Kong which featured an exceptional selection of vintages from Château Montrose
paired with a specially designed degustation menu.


Starting this December, the renowned 2005 vintage from the acclaimed Second
Growth estate will be served on flights between Hong Kong and London, Los
Angeles, New York, Paris and San Francisco on a rotational basis.


The addition of Château Montrose to Cathay Pacific’s inflight wine offering follows
the April introduction of highly acclaimed Grandes Marques Champagnes to the
airline’s First Class cabins, including Krug 2004, Taittinger Comtes de Champagne
2006, Champagne Deutz – William Deutz Cuvée 2006 and Piper-Heidsieck Rare
Millésime 2002.


Cathay Pacific General Manager Customer Experience and Design Vivian Lo said:
“The inflight dining experience has always been a hugely important focus of ours,
with our wine programme being a key component of that.


“The launch of vintages from Château Montrose marks another significant
enhancement to our First Class beverage programme, which alongside fine wines
from Château Lynch-Bages and Château Branaire-Ducru, is sure to delight the
discerning palates of our customers.”


Meanwhile, Château Montrose CEO Hervé Berland said of the launch: “We are very
proud of this new partnership between Château Montrose and Cathay Pacific. The
presence of our wine onboard the First Class cabin keeps us in touch with our most
important and prestigious clients all over the world. The 2005 vintage is just the
beginning of a new association between Cathay-Montrose, both our companies
sharing the same quest for excellence.”


Founded in 1778, Château Montrose lies north of Pauillac in St. Estèphe, the
northernmost appellation in Médoc, on a deep gravel bank overlooking the
Gironde. A remarkable property known for wines that are powerful and long-lived,
it is one of only two St. Estèphe estates to be awarded Second Growth status in
the 1855 official classification.


Elegant enough to enjoy on its own, the Château Montrose 2005 vintage pairs
wonderfully with most red meats, including game as well as some heartier poultry
and fish courses. It is also a perfect match with Asian dishes, pasta and a variety of
hard, flavourful cheeses.


Australian wine writer, educator and broadcaster Roy Moorfield, a member of
Cathay Pacific’s wine panel, said of the 2005 vintage: “Château Montrose is one of
the stars of the 2005 vintage in Bordeaux. It shows intense colour and
concentrated dark fruit flavours which meld beautifully with fine-grain tannins on
the palate, leading through to a sustained lingering finish.”
