We highlight the ‘1998 First Growth Case’, the marquis lot at the Strauss & Co Fine Wine Auction in Cape Town, with a hedonistic dinner at Cape Town’s hottest restaurant, Fyn. Featuring Bordeaux purchased en-primeur and only released after 21 years, this special dinner and luxurious lot features 1998s from Château Petrus, Cheval Blanc, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux and Latour!

We start the amazing food and wine journey with the already-legendary Dom Pérignon 2008. The 6 First Growth Bordeaux wines will then be presented by Higgo and Roland. With scores up to 100 points from Robert Parker, 1998 was a great vintage, especially on the Right Bank. This once-in-a-lifetime tasting of the finest, mature Bordeaux will be accompanied by Peter Templehof’s accomplished cuisine in his New York-style Fyn Restaurant. A jeroboam of 1998 St-Julien Second Growth Ducru-Beaucaillou will also be served along with 1998 Château d’Yquem for the dessert courses.

Only 10 seats available at each dinner.
