It was a charming and bubbly food pairing luncheon and cocktail masterclass at Eight Gourmets Gala (EGG) in Sunway hosted by Senior Winemaker of Chandon, Dan Buckle. Indulged and enjoyed Chandon’s flagship wines such as Chandon Brut brand champion in sparkling wines; Chandon Rosé the talking point of sparkling wines;  as well as the red and white still wines Domaine Chandon Chardonnay 2013, Pinot Noir 2013 and Shiraz 2012

The event kicked start with an introduction of Chandon’s history by Dan Buckle, Senior Winemaker of Chandon. We had an overview of Chandon’s heritage, vineyard and its winemaking process. The journey to explore Chandon’s vibrancy and synergistic blend with EGG’s four-course lunch, bon appetite!

Sashimi Platter with Chandon Brut and Chandon Rosé

I prefer to pair the Sashimi Platter with Chandon Brut and had the Chandon Rosé just as casual drink. The Chandon Brut highlight the wine’s savoury characters of roasted nuts and delicate spices when had it with seafood it gives a smooth, crisp and refreshing kicks. The Chandon Rosé had extra layer of complexity and additional richness to the palate so vibrant.

Smoked Duck Salad paired with Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir 2013 heightened the aroma and flavours of the smoked duck and subtleness of the dark plum and raspberry fruit flavours of the Pinot Noir medium bodied red wine. The Domaine Chandon Chardonnay 2013 is more elegant to enjoy after the entrée, the wine with summer citrus notes and spiced oak characters.

Here comes the main course, Grilled Salmon with Mint Sauce paired Domaine Chandon Chardonnay 2013. The Chardonnay’s summer citrus notes and spiced oak characters created a balanced and pleasant finish when paired with salmon. There is no need of lemon to take away the fishy taste or smell let the Chardonnay deal with it.

The Beef Prosciutto with Kalamata Olive accompanied by a glass of Domaine Chandon Shiraz 2012 was exquisite. This pairing highlighted the berry fruit flavours with fine and silky tannins in this red and harmoniously complemented the savoury complexity of the beef showcasing a perfect balance of flavour, texture and structure.
