Above & Beyond

A truly unique and unforgettable experience awaits you at the Hotel ICON’s Above & Beyond when the exclusive Maison Mumm RSRV range and France’s flagship, leading caviar brand, Sturia, join hands in July and August 2019 to develop a mouth-watering Cantonese based pairing.

According to Welkin Ip, Assistant Director of Food and Beverage at Hotel ICON, “The pairing of food and drinks has always been tricky. But at Hotel ICON, the Food & Beverage team of innovators are always working closely with our suppliers, spawning a whole new generation of exclusive food collaborations where patrons can enjoy one-of-a-kind products”.

Hotel ICON’s Senior Sommelier Wing KW Yu and Executive Chef – Chinese, Chi Ki Wong, together with Mumm Champagne Brand Ambassador Isabelle Piffard and Sturia Caviar’s Brand Ambassador Cyrille Thebault, have combined their expertise, boldness and innovative spirit to integrate French Champagne and Caviar with local Cantonese Cuisine. The result, an enticing, unforgettable, unimaginable, first of its kind crafted menu.

Sturia pioneered sturgeon farming in Bordeaux, France 20 years ago and prides itself in offering a wide variety of sensations and freshness of a remarkable caviar known to enhance dishes with subtle iodine hints. Sturias’ lightly salted caviar releases long hazelnut flavours on one’s palate creating an extraordinary experience. With uncompromising standards in selecting and refining caviar while emphasising the importance of environmental protection, Sturia has developed itself into a leading caviar brand across Europe, exciting gastronomic enthusiasts.

Mumm is rooted to Martell Mumm Perrier- Jouët, the prestigious cognac and Champagne business of Pernod Ricard, the world’s co-leader in Wines and Spirits. The RSRV range by Maison Mumm shines spotlight on the prestigious and secret history of their cuvees while acting as a reference to the mark used by cellar masters when selecting and identifying the best wines from Grands Crus. Maison Mumms’ RSRV, stands for ReSeRVed, and is limited to a privileged circle of friends and family. Recently however, to share the beauty of the Maison Mumm RSRV, the brand has introduced limited numbers of this exclusive range into Hong Kong. The range features a Blanc de Noirs 2009, Blanc de Blancs 2012, 4.5, and Lalou 2006. The RSRV range is always presented in a sleek and distinctive narrow necked bottle.

The Hotel ICON is excited to provide Hong Kong diners with a medley of unique dishes which balance the rich flavours of France’s top Sturia caviar and the limited Maison Mumm RSRV range. Pairing highlights include the Wok-fried Scrambled Egg White with Caviar and Crab Meat dish paired with the RSRV Blanc de Blancs 2012 due to its mineral notes, purity, elegance and light body, balancing the texture of the dish.  Meanwhile, the RSRV Cuvee 4.5, a unique blend of five of Maison Mumm’s Grand Cru terroirs, is paired with a Braised Garoupa Roll with Caviar and Winter Melon in Pumpkin Broth dish due to its power, structure, freshness and generous aromas, enhancing fish flavours.
