Emirates will soon be serving Dom Pérignon vintage champagnes to travellers flying in first class, along with an exclusive champagne pairing menu.
Two rare vintages will be on the menu: the solid and spicy Dom Pérignon Vintage 2005, which was released in April this year, and the dense yet silky Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003.
The champagne pairing menu has been developed in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Pascal Tingaud, chef de cuisine at Dom Pérignon.
This high-flying hedonistic experience will consist of six canapés,including cured duck with saffron poached peach; charcoal cracker topped with ash goat’s cheese and quince jelly; and mixed sesame coated tuna with wasabi mayonnaise.
"We have worked hard to fine-tune a culinary match with the exclusive Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003," reflects Joost Heymeijer, senior vice president of catering at Emirates.
"We place great emphasis on creating an experience onboard that our customers will cherish, and hope this new offering will help meet the high standards they have come to expect from Emirates."
