Château Palmer wine tasting in Shanghai and Hong Kong
February was a great month for Golden Circle wine aficionados at Shangri-La with two spectacular events held in conjunction with Kerry Wines.
Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai hosted cocktails and a wine-tasting dinner on Wednesday 22 February 2012 to showcase two nuanced expressions of the Château Palmer terroir – Alter Ego 2008 and 2006 and Château Palmer 2003, 1998 and 1996. One of the most widely recognised estates for wines with finesse and elegance, the tasting experience was complemented by music pieces inspired by the wines.
Bernard de Laage, Château Palmer’s director of development was present on both evenings, also attending the wine cocktail held at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong, the following night. The latter featured a tasting journey of wines including Palmer White 2009, Historical XIXth Century Wine L.20.07, Alter Ego 2008 & 2006 and Château Palmer 2002, 1999 and 1996. De Laage introduced the history of the wine and vintages before each was served, accompanied by the live entertainment of a jazz trio.
