The Beachcomber group has confirmed that the Antique Greek dramatist, Euripides, was totally right when he stated that where there is no wine there is no love. The recent exclusive partnership between the South-eastern based Mauritian hotel Le Paradis and the Southern French vine estate Château Paradis is exactly about this perfect symbiosis. The hotel Le Paradis Beachcomber has thus showed its love for the vine-growing world on the occasion of a cocktail-dinner, held on the 17th of November, through the showcasing of its great find : a Coteau d’Aix-en-Provence. Luxury Mauritius tells you more about this story where shared tastes have a tannic touch, Château Paradis.
A French Coteau d’Aix-en-Provence on the Mauritian shores
The Château Paradis has brought a pinch of Southern France amidst the convivial atmosphere of one of Le Paradis Beachcomber villas. The Coteau d’Aix-en-Provence variety, a well-known AOC nurtured in the Mediterranean soil, is now the fruit of a Mauritian and French partnership. This love story between Paradis Beachcomber and Château Paradis becomes even more intriguing when we know that it started in a peculiar setting : a gastronomic exhibition in Singapore. As explained by Stéphane Sogliuzzo, Hotel Manager of Le Paradis Beachcomber :
« On discovering the Château Paradis, the hotel delegation has been impressed. This domain’s wines of are crafted with great care from the best grape varieties. Other than being a good wine, the Château Paradis also recalls Le Paradis hotel. We have decided to make it become our « house wine»».
This partnership reminds us of the group’s involvement in high standard services and innovations focused on gastronomy and tastes, locally as well as internationally. A few months after the launching of the key welcoming throughout the Beachcomber world network, designed by the Mauritian barman Stephan Apollon and named Beautiful, this fresh partnership around a French wine aims at the discovery of traditional products, textures and aromas. A special menu has been devised to accompany the Château Paradis : compressed crabs and mangoes, a mushroom risotto and truffle toasts.
