Chapoutier’s Ermitage ‘Le Méal’ Blanc 2010 – Parker’s 100-pointer, plus the 2006 vintages of Chateau Trotanoy (RP 95+), Chateau Latour (RP 94), Chateau La Fleur-Petrus (RP 93) and Chateau Hosanna (RP 91) will headline at the first gala dinner which will be held in the Grand Ballroom of Macau’s Studio City on 11 November.

In a lavish, gastronomic partnership, some of the world’s most celebrated chefs featured in previous Michelin Guides will create dishes especially to pair with the wines including ‘demon chef’ Alvin Leung from 3-starred restaurant Bo Innovation in Hong Kong, Hideaki Matsuo from 3-starred Kashiwaya in Osaka, Bjorn Frantzen from 2-starred Frantzen in Stockholm and Shinji Kanesaka from 1-starred Sushi Kanesaka in Tokyo.

Participating chefs hailing from Macau include Guillaume Galliot from 2-starred The Tasting Room, Tam Kwok Fung from 2-starred restaurant Jade Drago and renowned pastry chef, Pierre Hermé.

Following the gala dinner there will also be a series of other events with visiting chefs from Singapore’s 2-starred Odette and Chicago’s 3-starred Grace descending on The Tasting Room and a run of tastings championing Hong Kong’s local street food which are scheduled up until October 2017.

Tickets for the dining events for this year are available from the Michelin Guide Hong Kong’s bilingual website and a list of the 2017 Michelin Guide entrants will be published on 9 November, following after the Guide’s release.

The partnership between Wine Advocate and Michelin Guide was announced recently at a press conference held in Macau, with Wine Advocate‘s editor-in-chief Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW hosting a tasting of some of the wines which will feature over the course of events, including Chateau Latour 2011, Chateau La Fleur-Petrus 2012 and Chateau Trotanoy 2011.
