Restaurant DN Innovacion is now accepting reservations for a special dinner on Feb. 29 that will pair wine from venerable French winery Chateau Margaux with dishes created by chef Daniel Negreira. This is the first time that Chateau Margaux has officially participated in a wine pairing dinner in Taiwan. Established as an estate in the 12th century, Chateau Margaux’s Bordeaux was one of four wines to achieve premier cru (first growth) ranking in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
Chateau Margaux’s brand ambassador in Asia, Thibault Pontallier, has selected each vintage that will be served on Feb. 29 at DN Innovacion. The wine list represents the best the estate has to offer and includes Chateau Margaux from 1990, 1995 and 2000, and a 2009 Pavillon de Margaux Blanc (a dry white wine). Dishes by Negreira will be designed to complement the flavor of each wine.
The menu, which blends traditional Spanish cuisine and molecular gastronomy cooking techniques, includes dishes like Boston lobster ceviche with “jewelry,” French white asparagus with Iberico bellota ham and extra virgin olive oil caviar and Kobe beef short rib with eggplant truffle puree and baby peas.
The price of the dinner is NT$18,888 per diner, plus a 10 percent service charge. For reservations call (02) 8780-1155 or visit www.dn-asia.com.
