Samule Lee and Maxime Verdier, respectively executive chef and head sommelier at the Michelin-starred Shang Palace restaurant in Paris, present an original pairing for the 2018 vintage of Château Montlabert.

Opened in 2011, the Shang Palace is the only restaurant in Paris to have earned a Michelin star for its Chinese cuisine. Today, a team of specialist chefs, who all master traditional and avant-garde techniques, offer authentic Cantonese-influenced Chinese cuisine.

Pour Messieurs Lee et Verdier, la structure affinée du millésime 2018, ainsi que son élégance aromatique et tannique, en fait l’accord parfait pour un poulet braisé et sa sauce aux haricots noirs, gingembre et échalotes. La tendresse du vin et la complexité du mets s’accordent à merveille.

For Lee and Verdier, the fine structure of the 2018 vintage, as well as its aromatic and tannic elegance, make it the perfect pairing for braised chicken in a sauce of ginger, black beans and shallots. The tenderness of the wine matches perfectly with the complexity of the dish's flavours.
