Bangkok 2014, The arts of wine, cuisine and painting converge and conspire to reveal new perspectives at a very special wine dinner taking place on Saturday, 10 May 2014, that continues The Reflexions’ tradition of leading all the senses on fresh adventures.

Experience the remarkable wines of Rhône Valley star Paul Jaboulet Aîné played against creative contemporary French cuisine, all specially curate with the startling paintings of modern art Dutch master Mondrian.

Maison Paul Jaboulet Aîné is an historic winery nestling the hillsides of Hermitage, looking out across the Rhône Valley in northern France. Its red Syrah grapes and white Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier grapes provide the wines of each appellation with a well-defined personality. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimum maturity before a lengthy vilification process reveals each wine’s unnamed (11)character. To ensure that exceptional wines are produced in-house oenologists taste and analyse the juice throughout. From this unique background emerged the legendary l’Hermitage

La Chapelle, classed among the twelve mythical bottles of the 20th century.

The culinary voyage begins with an informal cocktail reception with welcome glasses of 2011 Paul Jaboulet, Parallele 45, noted for its nose of apples, pear, lime, lemon and flowers.

The menu at The Reflexions, specially created by critically celebrated Chef Daniel Bucher and his passionate team, begins with Sea bass pescaccio /red cabbage/Tasman pepper which is paired with 2011 Crozes –Hermitage “Les Jalets”, an attractive, bright ruby wine with aromas of red and black berries, white pepper and spices following through to a palate which is smooth and rich with hints of wild mushrooms and liquorice.

This is followed by Langoustine/Green Apple/Almond/Verbena paired with 2011 Chateauneuf Du Pape, “Les Cedres”, a deep black cherry coloured wine premised on very old syrah grapes with an exceptionally fine finish.

Smoked Pigeon/Barley Malt/Wild Strawberry follows with 2008 Cote Rotie, “Les Jumelles”. Bright, dark ruby in colour with a fine, intense nose, the wine offers perfumes of violet, blackcurrants and herbs with a long, spicy finish.

Wagyu Beef Striploin/Black Sesame/Potato Structure builds to the next crescendo with 2007 Hermitage-Les Domaines, “La Petite Chapelle”, noted for its fruity depth, dark and creamy character and outstanding polish.

The evening combining consumable and eternal art reaches its climax with Chocolate/Berry + Vanilla arranged according to the great artist Piet Mondrian.
