Fine Wines & Champagnes

Master of Wine James Cluer

Accompanying the chefs, Master of Wine James Cluer has selected wines from amongst the best producers to create specific taste profiles for Qatar Airways’ various routes.

When a glass of wine in Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, left a young James Cluer speechless, he knew he was destined to turn his passion for wine into his life’s work. Now a Master of Wine, he has been chosen to select vintages from the world’s best producers for Qatar Airways’ passengers.

Taking into account differing taste profiles across Europe and Asia, and how the palate is affected at higher altitudes, his deciding criteria can be summed up simply: “At the end of the day, quality is king.”
