Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur proposes the best of South-west France at Lafite.
South-west France, stretching from Languedoc to Aquitaine, Landes and Basque Country towards Spain, is lush, hilly wine country and also a region famous for its produce. Some of its well-known products are the duck from Landes, the sweet piquillo pepper, Aquitaine’s caviar and Pommes Sarladaise or potatoes cooked in duck fat.
The region is home to more than two dozen wine-making appellations. Some of the world’s great grape varieties originated here, with some lesser known varieties grown nowhere else. Wines from Madiran and Jurancon, and the Grenache wines from Languedoc are highly regarded.
From 25 August to 6 September 2014, Lafite at Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur will hold a food and wine promotion that focuses on South-west France.
