Celebrating Bordeaux: Highlights from Our Exclusive Wine Tasting Event

An Evening of Elegance and Excellence

In the heart of Kuala Lumpur, we recently hosted an unforgettable evening of luxury and sophistication—the Exclusive Bordeaux Wine Tasting Event. With the charismatic Caroline Jounault from Maison de Luze/Grand Vins de Gironde leading the way, the night promised to be an exquisite journey through the world of Bordeaux wines.

The Storied Legacy of Maison de Luze

Before diving into the wines, it's worth appreciating the legacy of our hosts. Maison de Luze, founded by Baron Alfred de Luze in 1820, has been a beacon of excellence in Bordeaux for over two centuries. As one of the first wine merchants in Bordeaux, their dedication to quality and passion for winemaking has made them a global favorite. For 200 years, they have expertly selected, supported, and promoted wines from all appellations, offering wine lovers the best quality at the right price.

A Wine Lover’s Dream: The Tasting Lineup

Our guests were treated to a carefully curated selection of seven exceptional Bordeaux wines, each offering a unique taste of the region's rich terroir and winemaking expertise.

1. Chateau Peyredon Lagravette 'Chardonneret' - Bordeaux Blanc
We began our journey with the crisp and refreshing Chateau Peyredon Lagravette 'Chardonneret' Bordeaux Blanc. Its vibrant acidity and lively citrus notes were the perfect palate opener.

2. Les Pagodes de Cos - St Estephe 2016
Next, we indulged in the Les Pagodes de Cos, a 2016 vintage from St Estephe. This wine enchanted us with its deep complexity, revealing layers of dark fruit, chocolate, and subtle earthy undertones.

3. Chateau Phelan-Segur - St Estephe 2016
The journey through St Estephe continued with the Chateau Phelan-Segur 2016. Its velvety texture, rich flavor profile, and elegant tannins left a lasting impression.

4. Chateau Laroze - St Emilion Grand Cru 2016
From the renowned St Emilion region, the Chateau Laroze Grand Cru 2016 was a true delight. Its elegant structure, ripe berry notes, and hints of spice captured the essence of this celebrated appellation.

5. Chateau Lascombes - Margaux 2017
The Chateau Lascombes 2017 from Margaux showcased the hallmark elegance of the region. This wine's refined balance of fruit and oak, with a lingering finish, made it a standout favorite.

6. Chateau Gruaud Larose - St Julien 2016
Our next stop was St Julien with the Chateau Gruaud Larose 2016. This robust and full-bodied wine, with its rich bouquet and long finish, epitomized the excellence of Bordeaux reds.

7. Domaine De Chevalier - Pessac-Leognan Rouge 2017
The official lineup concluded with the Domaine De Chevalier Pessac-Leognan Rouge 2017. This wine’s complexity and finesse, with layers of dark fruit and subtle smokiness, made it a fitting finale.

A Delightful Surprise: Rocas De Sena 2020

Just when our guests thought the evening couldn't get any better, we unveiled a surprise bonus wine—the Rocas De Sena 2020. This exceptional wine, with its vibrant flavors and impeccable balance, was the perfect way to cap off the tasting experience.

The Art of Wine: Showcasing Laguiole Corkscrews

No wine event would be complete without the right tools, and we were proud to showcase the exquisite Laguiole corkscrews from Fontenille Pataud and Chateau Laguiole. These beautifully crafted pieces are not just tools but works of art, embodying the same dedication to quality and craftsmanship that defines Bordeaux wines.

An Evening to Remember

Our Exclusive Bordeaux Wine Tasting Event was more than just a wine tasting; it was a celebration of history, craftsmanship, and the sheer joy of discovering new favorites. Caroline Jounault's expertise and passion brought each wine to life, making the evening both educational and thoroughly enjoyable.

Thank you to Caroline Jounault and Maison de Luze for making this event a success, and to our guests for joining us. We look forward to many more such evenings of shared discovery and delight.

Stay tuned for our next event and join us as we continue to explore the wonderful world of wine.
