Concorde Passenger Menus-British Airways

Concorde, for people with taste for the best….

We at British Airways appreciate that to do justice to a fine meal served in the very special ambience on Concorde; wines must be chosen with professionalism and care. Which is why the fine wines aboard Concorde are selected by an expert committee including Michael Broadbent and Hugh Johnson, international connoisseurs whose knowledge of wine is near legendary.

From the renowned vineyard of Europe we offer a superlative selection: full bodied Clarets, Burgundies of genuine distinction, classic Champagnes, the finest port and liqueurs. There’s no finer cellar in the sky than to be found aboard Concorde.

On a typical Concorde Atlantic crossing, you’ll be served with a morning meal, lunch or dinner. Delicate canapés accompanied by fine Champagne precede a meal selection designed by our own award winning chefs in association with some of the world’s culinary masters. Damask table linen and fine Wedgwood and Royal Doulton china set the tone for a meal that’s unparalleled in the air.

A typical lunch might begin with a selected melon combined with seasonal fresh fruits or a plate of the finest new season’s Scottish salmon. The choice of main course might include a prime grilled fillet of Angus beef, or a delicious lobster creation. Particular attention is paid to the needs of business or health conscious travellers who might prefer, for example, a lighter main course; as well as those who require vegetarian or Kosher meals. Eating aboard Concorde: a taste to savour.

Today’s Selection

  Red WineCorton-Pougets Grand Gru 1994
Château de Corton André
The vineyards of Corton, in the charming
village of Aloxe Corton, are the sole grand cru
appelation for red wine in the Côte de
Beaune. When young their wines are dense
and closed, showing nothing of their potential
yet give them time to develop and they can
give immense pleasure, the perfect expression
of the Pinot Noir grape. A beautiful fragrance
of fresh ripe berries is the hallmark of great
red burgundy. The wines of Corton combine
this with a flavour that has suppleness,
complexity and weight but also a lovely silky
texture and great elegance.

Port

Warre’s 1982 Colheita Port
Warre’s 1982 Colheita is a blend of the very
highest quality wines from the 1982 harvest,
using traditional Portuguese grape varieties
and a centuries old method of vinification.
Colheita ports must be matured in wood for a
minimum of seven years – in practice it is
usually much longer.
The wine has a fine amber tawny colour. On
the nose it has complex and intense aromas
of orange peel, walnuts and almonds. The
flavour is deliciously sweet, smooth and
elegant with a long and lingering finish.
