Cuvée Elena by Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs, the first-ever Chardonnay from commune Saint-Emilion, has been awarded the Gold Medal at the Global Chardonnay Masters 2020. Held annually by the leading European drinks trade publication The Drinks Business, the prestigious competition is a top international ranking event for the global wine industry.

 

The wines from more than 20 countries, including France, Italy, Spain, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Greece, Turkey, Romania, South Africa, Mexico and others took part in the Global Chardonnay Masters 2020. Under the terms and conditions of the competition, samples of chardonnay from around the world were evaluated in a blind tasting by a panel of judges, consisting of group of Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers and leading UK wine buyers. According to the Global Masters, ‘for the first time, preconceived notions of the importance of location are pushed aside, allowing wines from across the globe to be judged purely on style and quality’. Competing in the Premium Category, Cuvée Elena has got a Gold as a Chardonnay Aged in Oak Barrels.

 

This was the maiden participation of Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs in the Global Chardonnay Masters. Known for its red Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Art Russe Collection, with Russian art on the labels, the Chateau released its first white wine as recently as November 2020, and it is Cuvée Elena 2019, the very first vintage, that was submitted to the judgement of the wine gurus in London. Furthermore, the wine created by the winemaker Louis Mitjavile and the Chateau team is the first-ever chardonnay produced in the commune Saint-Emilion.

 

Laurent Prosperi, Director of Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs:

‘We are honoured to represent France at this prestigious international competition. We are very proud of our victory and the fact that we are part of the tradition of the great French art of winemaking. The birth of Cuvée Elena was preceded by a long and painstaking work of our winemaker Louis Mitjavile and the entire Chateau team, and we are proud that the white wine of Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs elicited a direct response from leading wine experts and has been recognized as one of the world's best chardonnays of its class.’

 

The Chardonnay variety occupies one hectare of the Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs vineyards. Cuvée Elena is vinified in 100% new oak barrels from the Radoux Coopery; aging takes approximately 12 months. The wine is bottled exclusively in magnums. The unique bottles for Cuvée Elena are handcrafted at the Waltersperger artisanal glass workshop labelled France’s Living Heritage Enterprise. Decorated with a floral motif, each bottle is painted by an artist individually.

 

As previously reported, by decision of the Chateau owner Andrei Filatov, the 2019 vintage and all subsequent vintages of Cuvée Elena will be donated to charities. Each year, the bulk of the produce will be made available to charity auctions in the regions where Art Russe is present, and all proceeds will go to charities supporting children with severe illnesses. The charity idea for the project comes from the spouse of the Chateau owner, Elena Filatova.

TORONTODec. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Alberta Distillers, one of the first distilleries to create a true 100% rye whisky, is proud to introduce a limited-edition cask-strength whisky to the U.S. market: Alberta® Premium Cask Strength Rye. Originally released in Canada earlier this year, the limited-edition rye is crafted and distilled in Calgary, Alberta using pure 100% prairie rye mash bills and Rocky Mountain water. The result is a perfectly balanced liquid that reflects the brand's Canadian heritage and expert whisky craftsmanship.

Making a name for itself in the Canadian market, Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye comes to the U.S. after being sold out for months in Canada. Whisky fans can taste the purity in every bottle, distilled from the finest Canadian prairie grains grown by local farmers and refreshing glacier-fed Rocky Mountain spring water. This limited-edition, 100% rye is a very sippable whisky, best enjoyed neat with a drop of water or on the rocks.

"Alberta Distillers prides ourselves on being the producer of the world's number one selling 100% rye whisky in Alberta® Premium," George Teichroeb, General Manager of Alberta Distillery said. "We wanted to release a cask strength rye so our whisky fans can experience a 100% rye whisky in its purest form: straight from the barrel. This whisky truly is a great representative of our commitment to crafting superior rye whisky."

The original Canadian release of this whisky left a mark on experts and consumers alike this past year, earning accolades such as Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Best Cask Strength at the Canadian Whisky Awards and Gold at the Canadian Whisky Awards. It's also crafted at the distillery that was awarded the Distillery of the Decade by the Canadian Whisky Awards.

Packaged in an eye-catching, faceted glass bottle, Alberta Premium Cask-Strength Rye features the below characteristics:

  • ABV: 63.9% - 66.0%
  • Color: Amber gold
  • Aroma: Sweet, woody and oaky with a hint of vanilla
  • Taste: Exceptionally smooth with notes of caramel, vanilla, and just a hint of chocolate that balance the spiciness of rye and black currant
  • Finish: Smooth and lingering with the complexity of spice, warm vanilla and dark fruit

Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye will be available across the U.S. in very limited quantities with a suggested retail price of $69.95 for a 750ml bottle. For more information on Alberta Distillers visit www.albertadistillers.com.

Today, the Province announced it is providing $5 Million to support Manitoba Restaurants impacted by Covid-19 level red restrictions. 

Based on a recommendation from business leadership and stakeholders, the $5-million Dine-in Restaurant Relief Program will be delivered by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce in partnership with the Manitoba Restaurant and Foodservices Association. The program will be designed to provide a rebate to dine-in restaurants across Manitoba that have shifted to a delivery model as a result of moving to Critical (red) and subsequent public health orders. The rebate will help offset additional costs related to food delivery services, whether a restaurant provides its own delivery service or uses a third-party delivery company.

“In a time when the restaurant industry in Manitoba has experienced significant revenue losses due to the pandemic and code red restrictions, we are pleased to see our provincial government creating this initiative to ensure some of the additional expenses of operating during this unprecedented time are recognized,” said Shaun Jeffrey, executive director, Manitoba Restaurant and Foodservices Association. “We welcome this additional support to keep our restaurateurs’ spirits up during this holiday season. We look forward to working with all the partners involved to get these supports to the businesses that need them the most while supporting them as they rely on this lone revenue stream to keep them viable in the future.”  

More information on the Dine-in Restaurant Relief Program and how to apply will be available for restaurants in the weeks ahead.

LAS VEGAS Legacy ClubCirca Resort & Casino’s new luxe rooftop lounge – is now accepting reservations for December 28 and beyond. Situated atop Circa’s 458-foot hotel tower, Legacy Club will deliver extraordinary views of Las Vegas complemented by photo-worthy cocktails, an upscale lounge, expansive outdoor terrace with fire pits, and eclectic music ranging from electro swing to modern hits.

Reservations are now live and can be booked here.

“Legacy Club allows guests to experience the beauty of Las Vegas while celebrating the city’s vibrant history of the legends and mavericks that came before us, “said Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa. “I can’t wait to show our guests the best sunset views in the city.”

A Glimpse into Legacy Club

Design

Occupying the top floor of the tallest building north of Las Vegas Boulevard, the indoor/ outdoor Legacy Club will have exceptional sightlines of the Strip, Downtown and surrounding mountain ranges.

Legacy Club guests will arrive via dedicated elevators that ascend directly to the 60th floor. Paying homage to many of Vegas’ founding pioneers and icons, Legacy Club’s entryway will be adorned with 11 custom metal busts in the likeness of Jackie Gaughan, Benny Binion, Jay Sarno, Kirk Kerkorian, Sam Boyd, Steve Wynn, William Bennett, Bob Stupak, Frank Fertitta, Barron Hilton and Howard Hughes. Once inside, guests will see an artistic collection of black-and-white photos portraying each of the legendary gentleman, as well as Las Vegas power couple Mayor Carolyn Goodman and Oscar Goodman.

Spanning 8,400 square feet, the expansive cocktail lounge will feature multiple seating options including chic couches in the main lounge, cozy fire pits and banquettes on the stunning outdoor terrace, and stools at the centerpiece bar.

A must-see photo opportunity will be a captivating display of 1,000 ounces of pure gold. A ticker atop the display of Circa-branded gold bars will show their combined value based on the current price of gold.

Cocktail Offerings

Featuring Vegas-style twists on beloved libations, Circa’s talented mixologists have developed a menu matching Legacy Club’s upscale vibes. Overseen by Director of Beverage Sam Pulliam, cocktail highlights include:

  • The Desert Sunset Martini is a spin on the Breakfast Martini, invented by Salvatore Calabrese. The typical orange marmalade has been replaced with a white peach puree, adding an elegance better suited for an evening sip.
  • A variation on the popular Italian Aperol Spritz, the Sunset Spritz will be the perfect way to toast the sunset. Made with Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefeweizen, the drink has a well-rounded and creamy texture.
  • The namesake Legacy Club cocktail is a variation on the Clover Club. Using Absolut Elyx and a prickly pear syrup, the cocktail’s flavor profile is native to the Southwest.
  • The Nevadan is a Manhattan homage that uses Frey Ranch Rye, a smooth and spicy 100% rye whiskey distilled in Northern Nevada and aged for five years. Grand Marnier and Foro Amaro give this cocktail a unique herbal flavor and well-balanced profile.

Packages

Legacy Club will launch with the following packages and ticket offerings: 

  • Sunset Package: To take full advantage of Legacy Club’s sweeping views, guests can indulge in its Sunset Package. Timed to the evening’s specific sunset hour, the package is priced at $75 per person and includes comfortable outdoor firepit seating for two to 12 people, two handcrafted specialty cocktails, champagne toast at sunset and prime views of the striking skyline. All Sunset Packages begin 30 minutes prior to sunset and can be booked here.
  • New Year’s Eve: Say goodbye to 2020 in style with Legacy Club’s New Year’s Eve celebration. Starting at $500 per ticket, guests will enjoy a premium open bar, passed hors d’oeuvres and NYE festivities. The event will begin at 10 p.m. December 31 and doors will reopen to the public January 1 at 1 a.m.

Legacy Club welcomes guests ages 21 and over, and the dress code is elegant casual. The venue will be open Sunday through Wednesday, 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. and Thursday through Saturday, 2 p.m. – 4 a.m.

Circa Resort & Casino also will debut its new hotel tower on December 28, boasting 512 rooms and suites. For guests who book a room on opening day, the hotel is offering two complimentary nights for the “world’s earliest check-in” on December 26.

Circa continues to have a strong commitment to the health and safety of all guests and team members and are dedicated to following local and national health and safety guidelines.
