“For anyone who loves Burgundy, Bouchard Pere &
Fils is high on the list of premium pours,” said John Gardner, the
Caravelle’s General Manager. “That an estate this legendary is
paying this much attention to Vietnam is a boon for the city’s
aficionados and speaks well to Ho Chi Minh City’s growing
sophistication as a market for the finest wines.”

French Revolution. The company was originally founded by Michel
Boucher in 1775 in Volnay and passed down through generations.

and Nordic culinary delights will be served by Swedish Executive Sous Chef Andreas Askling. The tantalizing menu features thinly
sliced beef tenderloin with pickled onion and apricot jam; pan
seared deep sea scallops with marinated green asparagus, cherry
tomato confit, bacon vinaigrette, caesar salad shooter; and
mouth-watering crčme brule.

Reflections Restaurant, with aperitifs served from 6:15pm. It is
priced at $65 net per person.
