Thanks to a wonderful invitation, I had the chance to feast on 5-course wine pairing dinner with Barton & Guestier Wines from France presented by the brand ambassador, Victoire Desvigne at the Barton & Guestier Wine Dinner.
It was one of the finest gourmet dining experience to me, when my favourite Japanese food pair with the premium French wines.
The menu was specially crafted by the Japanese Executive Chef Ricky Kamiishi. It started with B&G Reserve Sauvignon Blanc IGP, a cool and refreshing white wine.
