The wines of Vignobles Garcin, a premium wine estate in Bordeaux, France, will be in the spotlight at a one-night only wine dinner at Lafite, Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 4 June 2014.
Wine owner Helene Garcin-Leveques will preside over this exclusive five-course dinner, with each course paired with Vignobles Garcin wines. Lafite’s Chef de Cuisine Jean-Philippe Guiard has created a menu to match these premier Bordeaux wines, including the singular Chateau Clos L’Eglise 2002.
The dinner will begin with Sea Bass and Scallop Carpaccio, Tomato, Winkles and Sea Urchin Vinaigrette served with Chateau Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Leognan 2010. It will continue with Soft-Boiled Egg with Morel Mushroom Creamy Sauce paired with Chateau Barde-Haut, Saint-Emilion 2008.
For the main course of Wagyu Beef Tournedos Rossini with Truffle Reduction, Pommes Dauphine and Sautéed Cepe Mushrooms, two wines – Chateau Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Leognan 2006 and Chateau Clos L’Eglise, Pomerol 2002 – will be served.
Dinner continues with Brie de Meaux with Truffle and ends with a dessert of Mango Sherbet and Pineapple Ravioli, Passionfruit Coulis and Lemon Meringue.
The wine dinner is priced at MYR490++ per person.
Helene is co-owner of Vignobles Garcin and owner of Bodega Poesia in Mendoza, Argentina. Under her directorship are four properties which are members of the Unios des Grand Crus de Bordeaux. These are:
- Chateau Barde Haut, Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe
- Clos L’Eglise, Pomerol
- Chateau Haut Bergey, Pessac Leognan
- Chateau Branon, Pessac Leognan
Helene’s philosophy is to make wines that respect and reflect the terrier upon which their vineyards stand. Chateau Barde Haut has been completely rebuilt to be possibly the most environmentally friendly property in the region.
