Experience the world’s finest Magnums at the home of the world’s largest collection of wines
[Macau, Immediate Release] – Grand Lisboa Hotel is home to an award-winning wine collection of more than 17,000 wine labels on offer across its signature restaurants – consistently earning the highest of honours from Wine Spectator and China’s Wine List, year after year. Now through December 2019, Grand Lisboa invites you to enjoy the hotel’s collection of the finest Magnum wines paired with exquisite dishes at Robuchon au Dôme, The Kitchen, Casa Don Alfonso and The 8.
Grand Lisboa has selected several phenomenal Magnums for guests to enjoy throughout the year at its signature restaurants. The first is Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine du Pégaü, Cuvée Réservée, Rhône 2010. This wine received an astounding 98 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, who described it as “full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, offering a seamless, layered profile on the palate…and a blockbuster finish that stays fresh and beautifully focused.” The second is Château Pavie Macquin, St.-Emilion 2008. This French red wine earned 94+ points from the Wine Advocate, who said it is “a beautiful St.-Emilion that tastes like the quintessence of crushed rocks intermixed with blueberry, blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, camphor and truffle notes.” The third is the Keller Riesling Dalsheim Hubacker GG Trocken 2013. Rated 93 points by the Wine Advocate, this German Reisling is said to be “one of, if not the most impressive Hubackers that Keller has ever produced.”
Beyond these impressive Magnums, Grand Lisboa also serves exceptional wines from its extensive collection of world-class vintages. Commercially, Grand Lisboa and Hotel Lisboa house the world’s largest collection of wines and spirits of an astonishing 490,000 bottles. Two decades ago, the hotels began their collection with just 1,000 labels, and now that has grown to close to half a million after sourcing the world over not only to build the world’s largest collection, but to find wines of the highest quality. Eighty percent of the hotels’ wines are Old World, while 20 percent are New World. One of the most expensive bottles in the wine collection is the vintage 1825 Château d’Yquem, valued at MOP 400,000.
The cellars feature a remarkable range of extremely rare wines from around the world such as the Château Margaux 1900; Château Haut-Brion 1929; Romanée Conti 1959; J.J. Prüm, Wehlner Sonnenuhr Riesling 1959; and Henri Jayer Richebourg 1962. The bottles are to be experienced exclusively at Grand Lisboa Hotel’s signature restaurants. Wine runs through the veins of the experienced food and beverage team at Grand Lisboa who strive to serve the best and thoughtfully pair each wine with just the right dishes.
Since 2008, when Grand Lisboa opened its doors, Wine Spectator has awarded Robuchon au Dôme and Casa Don Alfonso with its highest honor of the “Grand Award”. In 2018, there were only 91 restaurants around the world to receive this prestigious accolade, and two of them were given to restaurants at Grand Lisboa. China’s Wine List of the year also awarded its highest awards of “3-Glass Ratings” for an “Extraordinary Wine List” to Robuchon au Dôme, The 8 and Casa Don Alfonso in 2018.
