A Most Charming Château
Wine tasting at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore
Golden Circle Diamond members enjoyed a lavish wine dinner with Melanie Tesseron, co-owner of Château Pontet-Canet at Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore. A cocktail reception was followed by a Chinese dinner in the State Room, where guests had the opportunity to sample Pontet-Canet 2006, 2003, 2001, 2000 and 1996 during the evening.
Located in the Pauillac appellation, Pontet-Canet was included in the famous 1855 classification, confirming its membership among the elite of the Médoc. Over two centuries, three families have owned Pontet-Canet. Today it is run by Alfred Tesseron and his niece Melanie, daughter of Gerard Tesseron and descendant of Guy Tesseron. The Château’s winegrowing philosophy is to intervene as little as possible, using only traditional viticultural and cultivation practices.
The guests enjoyed the Chinese menu created especially to complement the wines, and the special evening concluded with a live jazz performance.
