Flew Qatar Airways (B787) in business last week and can confirm that the Krug Grand Cuvee Champagne is still available in Doha (thanks for the tip, as I had to ask for it!).

Great wine selection (as always) onboard too;

Champagne:

Pol Roger 2006 Rose
Billecart – Salmon Brut

Chardonnay:

Bouchard Pere & Fils Meaursault 2011 (Burgundy)

Savignon Blanc:

Saint Clair, Family Estate, 2012 (Marlborough, New Zealand)

Riesling:

Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer, Spätlese 2001 (Mosel Valley)

Bordeaux:

Chateau Cantenac Brown, Margaux, Grand Cru, 2007

Shiraz:

Bellingham, The Bernard Series, Basket Press 2011 (Franschhoek)

Pinot Noir:

Villa Maria, Cellar Selection, 2010 (Marlborough)

Dessert Wine:

Chateau de Fesles, Bonnezeaux 2010 (Loire Valley)

Porto:

Kopke, Colheita 1974 (Douro Valley)

Seriously, is there any other airline offering this quality and breadth onboard in their business product? I tend to lean heavily towards Qatar Airways these days but certainly my (business class) experiences over the past year with other operators including British Airways, Thai Airways, Austrian, Swiss and AA, have not come close…

I won’t digress into the dining menu but suffice to say, the “Beetroot soup with chive creme fraiche” has to be one of the better soups I’ve had anywhere, for quite some time.

Cheers!
