The Left Bank Wines Delight at Exclusive Elements Dinner

กรุงเทพฯ--8 ต.ค.--The Okura Prestige Bangkok

Michelin-starred Elements Restaurant at The Okura Prestige Bangkok, renowned for its innovative French cuisine with Japanese influence, is pleased to be hosting a special dinner featuring some of the best wines from Bordeaux's The Left Bank paired with a fabulous 5-course degustation menu prepared by Chef de Cuisine Hans Zahner and his team.

Bordeaux is one of the most recognized wine regions in the world. The left and right bank refers to either side of the Gironde River and its two subsidiaries, the Dordogne and the Garonne. The Medoc, located on the left bank to the north of Bordeaux city, is made up of 8 appellations. The most famous of these are Margaux, St-Julien, Pauillac and St-Estephe. In 1855 Napoleon III had the very best wines of the Medoc classified in a pyramid of five levels known as the 1 st to 5 th Growths. Only the best wine-producing châteaux were included, so even 5 th Growth wines were considered to be exceptional. The classification remains largely unchanged in almost 165 years. And now gourmands can enjoy exceptional wines from the left bank such as a 2014 St-Estephe from Chateau Montrose paired with smoked eel and Kurobuta pork belly; a 2013 Pauillac from Chateau Pinchon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande complementing a dish of poached blue lobster; and a stunning 2010 Margaux from Chateau Palmer matched with Kagoshima wagyu A3.

The Left Bank Wine Dinner takes place at Elements Restaurant from 18:45 onwards on Friday, 22 November 2019. Price is Baht 12,000++ per person. Early Bird Price offer at Baht 9,500++ if booked and paid for before 12 November 2019.

Elements restaurant is located on the 25 th floor of The Okura Prestige Bangkok. For more information and reservations, please contact 02 687 9000 or email elements@okurabangkok.com, or book on our website www.okurabangkok.com

Prices are subject to 10% service charge and 7% government tax.
