Emirates partners with Dom Pérignon for vintage bubbly in the skies

After its private-suite cabins and showers on board, Emirates has upgraded the wine list for its first-class passengers by introducing Dom Pérignon champagne in its first class cabins across various routes including on all its services to/from the UK. The airline is introducing the recently released Dom Pérignon Vintage 2005 and the Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003. There is also a new pairing menu developed in collaboration with two Michelin star Pascal Tingaud, Chef de Cuisine from Dom Pérignon.

The Champagne pairing menu, a first for the airline, will consist of six carefully designed canapés, intended to complement and enhance the experience of the Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003. These include canapés of cured duck with saffron poached peach; walnut baguette with Persian feta cheese, fresh fig, and truffle infused honey, and, wild smoked salmon, lemon and cumin cream cheese on norlander bread, on flights from Dubai.
Customers travelling to Dubai will be served charcoal cracker topped with ash goat’s cheese and quince jelly, teriyaki-marinated duck breast with a curried apricot and apple chutney, and finally, mixed sesame coated tuna with wasabi mayonnaise.
Dom Pérignon Vintage 2005 is the current vintage of Dom Pérignon. Due to its limited production linked to the challenging nature of the 2005 harvest, access to this vintage will be carefully curated. On some routes, Emirates will also serve the Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé 2003 in first class. Both champagnes have been offered to Emirates as a global airline exclusive.
