Taittinger Thai experience
WESTERN BUREAU: LEGACY since 1734, the independent family-owned Champagne House, Taittinger, in collaboration with Caribbean Producers Jamaica, took foodies on an epicurean champagne and Thai experience at Mystic Thai last Monday night.
Touted as a “journey” into champagne with delectable Thai cuisine, Taittinger the second largest vineyard in Champagne, offered a unique, elegant blend and feminine style Chardonnay to taste buds that came alive with the incredibly perfected Thai creations that have taken over the restaurant market in Montego Bay.
Mystic Thai, now a favourite among food aficionados in the west, provided an intimate setting for the celebration of what CPJ’s Mike Turner tagged “the launching
Aof two new champagnes – Prestige Rose and Nocturne Sec”. A brand-new product on the market, Turner brought Taittinger’s American brand ambassador Nicolas Delion, whose immense knowledge about wines comes from his interest in wine from an early age and his family’s love for fine wines – all of which gave him extra legs to stand on, and present a champagne that is present in 150 countries.
Delion brought energy and heart to the event, while Kareena Mahbubani showed why her creations have become the talk of the town after being opened for only five months.
It wasn’t a large crowd that turned out for the Monday evening fare, but those who weren’t there missed the opportunity to experience the art of great food.
