Today we are bringing you to a tasting journey with Mr. Pierre-Louis Araud, Brand Ambassador of Dom Pérignon at The Carlton Suite on 115/F in Ritz Carlton hotel, savouring some Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 and Dom Pérignon P2 Vintage 1998, paired with delicacies specially designed by Chef Pino Lavarra from Michelin star restaurant, Tosca.
Overlooking the amazing skyline landscape of Hong Kong, Dom Pérignon is the best way to pamper ourselves while appreciating this very unique city.
Dom Pérignon’s creation has long been centered upon its absolute dedication to vintage wines and each evolution contributes to its beautiful singularity. The privileged moments where the wines sing higher and stronger are called “Plénitudes”. Each Dom Pérignon Vintage has three Plenitudes–P1, P2 and P3–and embodies its uniqueness with each breath of new life.
Pierre-Louis guided us through a journey of extraordinarily elegant champagne and discovered the intriguing drama of the Power of Creation of Dom Pérignon. What’s not to love to start off with some luxurious Prunier Caviar à la Royale? Currently having a pop-up shop in Pacific Place, Prunier Saint James caviar has a low salt content, traditionally served for high-ranking guests and royals, a perfect high-end way to kick start a champagne journey.
White Pearl from France has a light seawater taste and creamy texture even June isn’t the perfect month for oysters, but who can deny that champagne and seafood is like bread and butter in the sea?
Before moving on to our next platter, we have switched the champagne to our main character of the day, P2, Dom Pérignon P2 Vintage 1998. A bottle of 18-year-old, with no deterioration, no contact with Oxygen, is now presented in front of you in its original unopened bottle.
The smooth texture with silky fine bubbles and the perfectly balanced acidity from P2 complimented with a platter of savoury ham and cheese bites. Want more? Ozone is currently offering an indulging Dom Pérignon Sunday Brunch for just $1,180/per head, while a bottle of Dom Pérignon is costing a lot more than that price already.
