Thailand’s oldest bottle of wine

Where will you find Pétrus Pomerol 1959 – the oldest bottle of wine in Thailand? Where else but at The Dome at lebua in Bangkok.

An extraordinary night calls for an extraordinary wine, which is why we’re making our one bottle of vintage Pétrus 1959 available for the first time to New Year’s Eve guests who have already decided to Rise Above the Ordinary and indulge in an extravagant celebratory dinner at our award-winning restaurants, Mezzaluna, Breeze and Sirocco.

The celebrated Bordeaux is produced from the 1959 harvest at the Pétrus estate in Pomerol near Saint-Émilion. An estate of limited size, production is also limited to red wine almost entirely from Merlot grapes. The estate produces no lesser, 'second label wine'.

Pétrus attained considerable fame in New York in the 1960s when it was served at Le Pavillon, the legendary restaurant that defined French cuisine in the United States for two decades. It was during these heady years that the Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis, who had married John F Kennedy’s widow Jacqueline, sat at a corner table there and turned Pétrus into the status symbol of choice among those who wanted to make the statement that they not only knew wine, but were very serious about wine.

Half a century later, you don't have to be a shipping tycoon to buy the one bottle of vintage Pétrus 1959 that is available in Thailand – but you can live like one.
