The week in pictures: Hong Kong

Ivy Ng, publisher of the drinks business Hong Kong (far left), attended a Laurent Perrier wine dinner hosted by co-owner, Alexandra Pereyre de Nonancourt, and its local importer ASC Fine Wines.

Among the wines served at the dinner, one highlight was the Alexandra Rosé 2004, a vintage rosé Champagne that Alexandra’s father, Bernard de Nonancourt, created for her wedding in 1987. The house had always made a rosé Champagne using the saignée method. However, it didn’t have a vintage rosé Champagne at the time of her wedding. Alexandre was expecting her father to make a speech but that never came. Instead, her father made this Champagne named after her as a wedding gift, which was compared by her as a father’s message to a daughter in a wine. She joined her father to work in the Champagne house 10 months later.
