BEST HOTEL WINE LIST MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA 2017
Winning this title twice is truly out of pure passion and savoir-faire!
1st time Constance Prince Maurice has won the title was in 2015, where the judges at the World of Fine Wine, thought it surpassed the competition.
With an impressive collection of more than 25,000 bottles, The Wine Cellar at Constance Prince Maurice which is housed in its own building few steps away from Archipel restaurant is particularly noteworthy.
The judges at the World’s Best Wine Lists 2015 found the list to be “full of classic European choices” backed up with an “excellent selection from the New World, and particularly South Africa.”
As senior judge Alder Yarrow said, “There’s some depth in areas that you wouldn’t expect from a hotel of this kind, older vintages of Trimbach Clos Ste-Hune, for example, seven different Jura wines,
15 vintages of Beaucastel.”
“It’s Brooklyn goes to Mauritius,” added Francis Percival, “There are lots of wines I’d like to drink.”
The wine list at Constance Prince Maurice provides good selections of worldwide wines in half bottles, magnums, jeroboams, and methusalems, not to mention good by-the-glass options in two different sizes 12 or 18cl, encompassing Petite Arvine, Gérald Clavien, 2012, Switzerland,
and Chablis, Domaine Long-Depaquit, 2013, France.
