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.
