As Emirates brings its distinctive travel experience of Premium Economy Class to more destinations – passengers in Premium Economy can now sample an exceptional sparkling wine that is a global exclusive to Emirates – Chandon Vintage Brut 2016.
As part of a robust beverage selection, the airline has procured an outstanding Australian sparkling wine as a global exclusive, providing passengers with the joy of refreshing bubbles inflight.
Described as having ‘youthful and vibrant flavours with subtle complexity,’ Chandon Vintage Brut 2016 is a premium sparkling wine, made in the traditional method for elegance and depth.
From the pristine Strathbogie and King Valley vineyards in the Victorian Mountains, the grapes are grown in rich loamy soils and flourish in the mild summer weather.
The wine is then crafted with precision by experienced winemakers, who focus on climate and fruit potential to achieve the perfect acidity and freshness, with a distinctive style that reflects the locale in which it is made. The result is a remarkable sparkling wine effervescent with freshness and energy, with a six years of lees age adding a touch of refinement – and a luxurious wine that is completely exclusive to Emirates Premium Economy passengers.
In addition to the exclusive Chandon, Premium Economy Class passengers can enjoy gourmet, regionally inspired menus with generous portions, including a choice of main course. Menus are updated monthly by Emirates expert chefs, guaranteeing variety even for frequent travellers.
Emirates Premium Economy cuisine is an elegant experience, served with linen napkins, fine Royal Doulton china, stainless-steel cutlery, and with liqueurs, chocolates, coffee, and tea served to round off the meal. The complimentary drinks menu also includes a selection of spirits, beers, soft drinks, and fine wines, with each beverage chosen by Emirates as a best-in-class preferred beverage for passengers, forming part of Emirates $1bn investment into its wine programme since 2006.
