Cru Mem­bers

Prestige (Singapore) - - VIP -

A wine din­ner in it­self may sound lav­ish, but when the num­ber of grand cru Bur­gundies served hits dou­ble-digit, that’s when you know you’re re­ally do­ing it right. This was cer­tainly the case for Taste of Tra­di­tion’s re­cent Cor­ton Grand Crus din­ner at the Ori­gin Grill & Bar. Hosted by Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Emil Teo, an out­doors­man (you might have seen him take up Pres­tige’s bungy jump chal­lenge) and known “wine di­nosaur” (he’s been in the trade for 22 years), the five-course spread was paired with 10 wines from the in­creas­ingly highly rated fam­ily-owned Do­maine An­tonin Guyon and famed né­go­ciant-éléveur Mai­son Louis La­tour. While one might imagine a gath­er­ing of wine lovers to be dom­i­nated by con­ver­sa­tions with mys­ti­fy­ing tast­ing notes, this was more a con­vivial af­fair with guests re­gal­ing one an­other with fam­ily tales and travel plans. For those not suitably sa­ti­ated, Teo broke out a stash of vin­tage and aged Ar­magnac and XO Co­gnac.
