La Fête des Vins 2019

La Fête des Vins 2019

1 (Wed) – 15 (Wed) May 2019
@ Times Square, Harbour City, ifc mall & New Town Plaza stores

One of the oldest wine growing countries in the world, France offers a wide variety of wines; once you step into the world of French wine, there is an endless stream of wine waiting for you to taste. This year, La Fête des Vins at city’super presents a collection of premium French wines, from light, refreshing choices to fuller-bodied options. Meet your new favourite wine here.

 

Sip on Something Sweet This Spring

This May, city’super is bringing you two beautiful sweet wines in celebration of spring. What’s more, enjoy them with cheese for the ultimate indulgence!

Aegerter Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2013
Founded in 1988, Jean-Luc & Paul Aegerter is one of the up-and-coming wine producers in Burgundy known for combining tradition and innovation in their wine-making techniques. 

This wine has a perfumed nose of ripe fruit and honey, and is rich and creamy on the palate.
Aroma: apple, pineapple, honey
Flavours: citrus, cinnamon, butter

Cave de Ribeauvillé Clos du Zahnacker 2011 / 2012
A famous winery in Alsace, Cave de Ribeauvillé ensures strict control of yields, sustainable growth, organic practices and manual harvest. 

This bottle has a pronounced nose of citrus, apple, banana and hints of mineral – clean and focused on the palate with well-integrated acidity.
Cheers to a Refreshing Taste! 

Love wines that are light and refreshing on the palate? These two bottles from the Loire Valley may be what you’re looking for.  

Domaine Fournier Père & Fils Sancerre Cuvée Silex 2015
The Fournier family has been making wine since the 1800s, and Domaine Fournier is now one of the most important estates in Sancerre. 

This wine is tangy with lemon, white asparagus and mineral notes, followed by a long, salt-tinged and juicy finish. 

Domaine de La Levraudière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine 2017
Founded by Paul Fournier in 1950 by taking over the family’s two hectares of vineyards in Sancerre, this is another property owned by the Fournier family. 

Fresh and dry, this wine, made of 100% Melon de Bourgogne (a French white grape variety), has pronounced aromas of pineapple, melon and a touch of yeast. 
How About Something Nutty and Bubbly?

If you enjoy your bubbly with nutty and toasty flavours, add these two sparkling wines to your must-try list!
 
Moutard Père & Fils Cuvée des 6 Cépages Brut Nature 2009
Moutard Père & Fils was established in 1642, and is located at Buxeuil, an area known for making Champagne using less-popular grape varieties including Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc.

This unique cuvée from Moutard has been aged for over nine years in a cellar before its release.
Aromas: lemon, apricot, biscuit
Flavours: green apple, nuts, toast

Jaillance Vouvray Brut NV
Jaillance is France’s top-selling sparkling wine, which was produced by the Die Cooperative of 225 winegrowers. The coop has been moving towards organic cultivation since 1989. 

Vouvray is one of the Loire Valley’s most prestigious appellations where all wines are made with traditional methods. This sparkling wine is clean and refreshing with fresh fruitiness and a hint of almond on the palate, supported by a crisp acidity. 
What to Drink with Foie Gras?

If this question has ever crossed your mind, we’re here to help! city’super is bringing you two premium wines that pair perfectly with foie gras – check them out!

Château Guiraud 1998 
Château Guiraud in Sauternes was classed as premier grand cru. The 1998 Guiraud is medium golden in colour with a nutty nose of praline and croissant notions, and has notes of stone fruit and earthy layers. Pair it with Comtesse du Barry foie gras where the toasty flavour of the wine compliments the smoothness of the foie gras.

Comtesse du Barry was established in 1908 in Gimont with the vision to “make the best foie gras in the world”. Their products come from free-range geese and ducks raised on whole yellow maize grain in the southwestern French countryside. 

Domaine Aegerter Nuits-Saint-Georges 2016 
After being hand-harvested, the grapes are put into stainless steel tanks for pre-fermentation maceration for two to four days, while the ageing takes place in oak barrels for eight to 12 months.

This full-bodied red is balanced, sensual and marked by aromas of black currant and blueberry. We recommend pairing it with the Comtesse du Barry Duck Confit and Mashed Potatoes. 
Wine + Cheese = The Perfect Pair

Happy hour with friends is better with great wines and delicious cheese. Try our recommended pairing below! 

Domaine Fournier Père & Fils Sancerre Les Belles Vignes Blanc 2017
Another great Domaine Fournier creation, this clear golden wine has well-developed aromas of syringa and blackcurrant. It is full and round on the palate, followed by crispness which then lingers with a touch of anise. 

Olivet Au Foiins Cheese
Made only in May and June from the milk of cows grazing on lush spring grasses, this soft-ripened French cheese, which resembles Camembert in flavour, has a white-mould rind and imparts a rich, herbal and floral tang. Goes well with Sauvignon Blanc and wines from the Loire region!  
Matured Wines We Love

Looking for a gift of wine for friends but overwhelmed by all the choices? Here are two great full-bodied Bordeaux vintages that are sure to impress any oenophile.

Château Desmirail 1982
Established in 1661, Château Desmirail is a winery in the Margaux appellation of the Bordeaux region known for its classic wines bursting with floral aroma.

This full-bodied and rounded wine, from the extraordinary year of 1982, has been aged in 40% new French oak for 18 months, revealing fruity flavours and aromas of black fruit, mocha and liquorice. 

Château Clos de Sarpe 1990
The family-owned Château Clos de Sarpe is now in its third generation. Two-thirds of their vineyards are old vines that are 50 to 80 years old, producing wines with highly concentrated fruitiness. All grapes are hand-picked and no chemical additives are used. 

This powerful and complex wine from 1990 has a well-structured palate displaying ripe fruit flavours of black currants and red berries with hints of spice and cedar notes.

Eat Well.Live Healthy

@ Times Square, Harbour City, ifc mall, New Town Plaza & Lab Concept stores

Eat well to live healthy! 
Discover healthy delicacies at city’super, including healthy snacks, organic food, wellness soup & tea, and eco-friendly foodware. Tickle your taste buds and enjoy a healthier, better life! 

Trending Plant-based Meat

Vegetarianism is trending with plant-based diet on the rise. The Veggie Burger by Food Evolution comes from Italy, it offers a selection of flavors like classic lemon, truffle, vegetarian parmesan cheese and porcini mushrooms. Rich and flavorful, tender and succulent, the ‘meat’ is best served as a burger or an open-faced sandwich. Add in the Italian wild rocket with a strong peppery aroma and the plump Sardinia Tomatoes for that extra freshness and nutritional value.

Healthy Snacking

When the clock strikes three-fifteen, the body starts craving for snacks! Try stocking up your snack cabinet with healthy snack options like Savory Seed Parmesan Crisps by Sonoma Creamery, they are gluten-free, made with natural cheese, then baked with organic pumpkin and sunflower seeds, into thin, crunchy crisps that are high in protein and have zero sugar.

Another healthy snack choice will be Sea World veggie crisps from Korea. They offer Beet Crisps, Burdock Crisps, Kelp Crisps, and Lotus Root Crisps. All chips are seasoned with deep sea water from 200m below sea level, without preservatives, artificial coloring or MSG. They even added in lactobacillus powder to give that extra probiotic. Snacking can be healthy too!

Eat and Drink Organic

Captain Kombucha from Portugal specializes in naturally fermented drinks, made with tea, sugar and fermented with a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. As it is rich in enzymes and probiotics, it is beneficial to the digestive system, can strengthen the immune system, boost your energy and improve skin condition. Captain Kombucha’s products are all natural and 100% organic, without artificial colors and flavors. The bubbly refreshing Ginger Lemon flavor is the best alternative to soda!

Wellness Combo – Chinese Soup and Herbal Tea

Spring is warm and humid but sometimes cold, and the dampness will accumulate in the body causing a heavy feeling. One should nurture the liver and spleen during this time of the year. The recipes of the double-boiled soup by Healthy Green are designed by ‘King Eternal’ Chinese Medicine Doctor. Made with traditional Chinese medicine and herbs, each package contains two bowls of soup. Simply reheat the package and enjoy the soup with the ingredients, which makes for a simple yet healthy meal. 

Eco-Friendly Foodware

Can leaves be made into plates? Yes, it is possible! All you need is a bit of imagination. The plates made from leaves by Leaf Plate are inspired by the Indians who use leaves to hold their street food. With the help of modern technology, Leaf Plates are made by pressing three layers of leaves into the shape of a plate, then coated with natural wax, thus forming sturdy, water-resistant and compostable plates. Every plate is one of a kind!

Takeout can be more environmental-friendly with the new city’super Grab’n’Go reusable food bag. Designed by Roll’eat from Spain, the food bag is leak-proof and suitable for hot food (maximum 120ºC), easy to clean and compact to bring around; it can be used for holding small cakes and even steaming hot rice rolls! The illustration on the food bag is drawn by Natsuka Murata exclusively for city’super, the Red Panda on the illustration is classified as an endangered species. It is hoped that customers can be reminded to conserve the forest resources by using sustainable or reusable products while appreciating the lovely illustration on the food bag.

Picnic with Furry Friends

Picnic with Furry Friends

3 (Wed) – 16 (Tue) Apr 2019
@ Times Square, Harbour City, ifc mall, New Town Plaza & Lab Concept stores

A picnic is the perfect way to celebrate the warmer spring weather, and an outing your furry family members are also sure to love. From 3 (Wed) April, city’super will offer a collection of picnic snacks, outdoor goods and pet care items to help you enjoy a picnic with your furry friends.

Picnic Made Easy

Onigiri rice balls are easy to make and a must-have for picnic! No advance preparation needed. Simply bring the Onisi Foods instant alpha rice with you. Made with 100% Japanese rice, the rice has been dried using the rapid-dry method. A pack of succulent rice is ready to be served just by filling in hot or cold water.

Then mix in the Hokkai Yamato Egg & Vegetable or Salmon & Shirasu rice seasoning from Hokkaido and wrap with a crispy Ariake seaweed. The final finishing touch is to put them into a Prime Nakamura colourful Block lunch box, kawaii neh!

Another adorable lunch box set is the exciting collaboration between Korean luncheon meat brand Richam and Oxford Blocks. Each lunch box comes with two cans of original luncheon meat and a fork shaped like a block man. The lunch boxes can also be stacked up like blocks for the extra fun.

Picnic Snacks for You and Your Puppy

Enjoy some quality picnic time with your furry friends! Bring along Bob's Red Mill’s oats bar for yourself; delicious flavours include Banana Peanut Butter, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Coconut Peanut Butter. All gluten-free, free of soy, dairy, and eggs, low in sugar, healthy to devour and convenient to carry around.

As for your pet companion, Hugo and Celine Doggie Ice Cream from Sweden is paw-licking good. Signature flavours include ox liver, salmon and moose, made 100% from the best quality natural Swedish ingredients and free of refined sugar. Also available are frozen beef patties, made with organic beef and locally grown vegetables. To ensure that the ice cream flavours are what dogs really want, the recipes are developed together with veterinarian and University Professor Anna Hielm-Björkman.

Let’s Get Smoking

Instead of full-on BBQ when going on camping or picnicking, a handy smoker will also do the trick! Have fun making smoked snacks together with your friends.

Apeluca smoker from Japan features a sleek design and comes with wood smoker chips, smoker wood, and a recipe book. It can be used to smoke food like cheese, nuts, dried fish and onsen eggs. Simply put one teaspoon of wood smoker chips on the steel tray, close the lid and heat on high heat for 1-2 minutes until smoke comes out from the ventilation hole, then place the food on the grill rack and smoke till it gets the colour you desire!

Smoky recommendations:
• Les frères Marchand Camembert Cheese: rich and creamy, smoking can help bring out a more distinct flavour
• Ehime Dried Small Squid: savoury and umami, smoked flavour gives an additional kick
• Kluth Nut-Mix gets crunchier and tastier after being smoked

The Perfect Outdoor Water Bottle

Bring your own water bottle when going on a picnic to be more environmentally friendly! Water bottles come in all shapes, sizes and materials, say the bottles by CamelBak are well-suited for outdoor usage. The magnet top can be placed on the bottle surface securely thus avoid fidgeting or spilling while you drink. The ergonomic high-flow spout is angled and contoured for efficient hydration. The bottles are BPA-free, can hold cold water or hot water under 80 degrees, to suit your different needs.

A handy water bottle is essential when going out with pets, but to find one that is appropriate for outdoor use can be a hassle. Petkit Eversweet Travel Waterer is specially designed for pet owners. The one-hand watering is easy to handle; water will flow into the arc water trough just by pressing the button, for the pet to drink with ease. Made with antibacterial material, it can be kept inside a bag after use, without the worry of bacteria growth. The open drinking trough design is also convenient to clean. The activated coconut shell carbon filter inside the bottle can be used up to 100 times to remove impurities thus keeping the dogs healthy. The product has also been awarded the Red Dot Design Award 2017.

Organic Pet Care

Pet care products should preferably be natural to minimise the risk of allergic reactions. Mr Organic has designed a series of organic pet care products that are 100% made in Australia, including organic paw cleanser, paw and nose balm, and 2-in-1 conditioning shampoo.

The products contain 19 different certified organic ingredients, and are allergy tested and free from fragrance, artificial colours, mineral oils, chemical preservatives and alcohol. The products' herbal ingredients include moisturising chamomile, refreshing lavender and sweet orange, which have a calming effect, making bath time more a relaxing experience for both you and your pet.

Spanish Gourmet Temptations

Spanish Gourmet Temptations

19 (Tue) Mar – 2 (Tue) Apr 2019
@ Times Square, Harbour City, ifc mall & New Town Plaza stores
 
When you think about Spain, what do you imagine: Flamenco? Bullfighting? The beautiful buildings of Barcelona? For many foodies, Spain is also a gourmet paradise.
 
From Mar 19 to Apr 2, city’super brings you an array of Spanish delicacies including jumbo red king prawns, Ibérico pork, paella, red sangria and more, which no fan of Spanish food should miss.
 

Jumbo size equals jumbo flavour!


Jumbo Spanish Red King Prawns boast a robust, lingering sweetness far more intense than that of regular prawns.
 
Red King Prawns come from the deep waters of the Mediterranean Sea. They are characterised by their enormous size and bright red colour. When cooked, the flesh tastes sweet and the roe rich and creamy – a delicacy that makes you crave more.
 
They can be prepared and served at home in just a few easy steps: defrost the prawns a day in advance, then pan-sear them with olive oil, salt and black pepper (referred to as a la plancha in Spanish). The head and shell can be made into a flavourful stock for making pasta or soup.

What wine goes well with red prawns? Our vote goes to Lola Mola Sangria. This red Sangria is created following an original Spanish recipe and using only natural ingredients. It is refreshingly sweet and sour, and tastes like a young wine, with notes of orange peel, raisins, cinnamon and muscat.

The King and Queen of Meats in Spain

Bellota-grade Ibérico pork is a synonym for high-quality pork in Spain. The Iberian pork has a distinctive, unique aroma as a result of having been fed on acorns. The Bellota grade is only given each April to pigs that reach a weight of 180-200kg. Be it pork chop or pork rack chop, just a hint of seasoning such as sea salt and herbs is required to bring out its irresistible flavour. Pan-fry until medium-well done for maximum tenderness.

Shop Now
 
The Iberian Peninsula is also famous for its lamb. Raised in the Pyrenees Mountains, Iberian sheep are first fed with sheep milk, and then with cereal, corn and high-oleic acid sunflower seeds. Thanks to the nutritious feed and stress-free environment, the lamb is delicate and tender. Pan-fry the lamb rack till medium rare. Its succulent texture pairs well with pesto.
 
When accompanied by Dominio de Atauta Parada de Atauta from Spain, the combination is irresistible. The wine displays an intense aroma of blackberries and chocolate, with a ripe fruit palate and hints of spiciness. It adds depths and flavour to both kinds of meat.

 Voilà! Paella!


A great deal of preparation goes into making a pan of paella, but you no longer need to shop around for all the ingredients; instead, just open a can.
 
La Familia De Lola Mixed Paella – Seafood and Chicken is developed by Clavo Food Factory, which specialises in frozen and refrigerated food. Under the Spanish Lola family, renowned for their top-quality food products, this authentic dish is based on a traditional paella recipe, but made readily available in a can.
 
It is easy and convenient to cook: simply boil the soup with all the ingredients for 20 minutes, and voilà! You can even add fresh seafood.
 
La Familia De Lola also features delicious recipes like Rice with Cuttlefish Ink, and Pork Cheeks in Sauce, perfect for entertaining friends and family at home.

A Toast to Ibérico Ham

Bellota-Bellota® is an icon of Spanish Ibérico Ham. In celebration of our Spanish Festival, Bellota-Bellota® has created various luxurious and delicious toast recipes featuring ingredients like Ventresca tuna belly, cheese, chorizo and olive oil. The selection includes:
 
1) Spanish Ventresca Tuna Belly Toast with Premium Red Pepper Olive Oil
2) Spanish Serrano de Trevelez Ham Toast with Manchego Cheese and Tomato Salsa

Extra Crunchy Potato Chips

Quillo Potato Chips are famous for their exceptional crunchiness, the result of the low-heat treatment of the potatoes, contributing to a rich flavour and crispy texture.
 
There are four flavours to choose from: the much-loved Spanish Ham flavour, which best brings out the slightly salty, nutty aroma of this Spanish speciality meat; the Fried Egg flavour, with its flavour of Spanish tortilla; and the White Truffle and Lemon & Pink Pepper flavours, which make the perfect accompaniment to a cold beer or a glass of wine.
 
The potato chips also come in stylish packaging, which makes them great for gifting.

The Sake Connection 2019

The Sake Connection 2019

4 (Mon) – 18 (Mon) Mar 2019
@ Times Square, Harbour City, ifc mall & New Town Plaza stores

7 (Thur) – 17 (Sun) Mar 2019
@ Times Square Atrium

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the city’super sake fair. Over the years, the sake fair acted as a bridge between the breweries, the customers and their families and friends – we believe sake and gourmet connect people.

The sake fair this year is therefore named “The Sake Connection 2019". Highlights include Umeshuya from Osaka, featuring their popular stacking bottle Umeshu and Yuzushu; 140-years-old Niizawa, bringing with them their rising star Hakurakusei series, and the exquisite artist crossover collections. Also not to be missed are the signature sakes by well-liked breweries Born, Dewazakura and Okunomatsu.

Ice Temperature Aging: Best Temperature for Sake Aging


After producing a sake, the alcohol can be matured for different periods, changing its sweetness, acidity, level of umami, and even texture to give it unique characteristics and flavours. In general, the longer a sake is aged, the rounder its body. The time of the year when the sake is being matured also gives it a seasonal touch.

Ice temperature aging is often considered the best temperature at which sakes are being aged. Under this naturally cold temperature, the yeast stays inactive. The result is a sake with a complex yet elegant flavour and a mellow texture.

Here are three snow-aged sakes you should try:

• Born Dan Junmai Daiginjo
With the highest polishing ratio among Born’s products, this sake has been aged at natural low temperature for two years and has a complex yet refined flavour.

• Dewazakura Yukimanman 5-Year-Aged Daiginjo
Aged naturally at -5℃ for five years and brewed under strict standards, this sake is a masterpiece with an expressive and deep aroma, and has a mellow and velvety texture.

• Hakkaisan Snow Aged Junmai Ginjo 3 Years
Its elegant fragrance and soft and smooth texture have been obtained through aging at a natural low temperature for three years.

The Art of Savouring Sake

Founded in 1873, Niizawa Brewery invites two renowned artists every year to design two of their junmai daiginjo’s sake labels, deepening the artistic connection between sake and art.

Austrian brand Riedel is also serious about creating sake ware, working with 170 sake experts since 2010 to first launched the Daiginjo Cup, and now the Junmai Cup.

Here are two sakes and two sake cups worthy of being added to your personal “art” collection:

• Niizawa Junmai Daiginjo 2018
With a polishing time of 350 hours and only 7% of each grain remaining, this sake has a mellow first impression, followed by a rich rice aroma and a clean finish. The sake label was designed by award-winning artist Mr Tadanori Yokoo.

• Niizawa Kizashi Junmai Daiginjo 2018
The sake label is the work of Ms Aiko Miyanaga. The Kyoto native is very active in the Japanese art scene and has obtained many awards in major Japanese art competitions.

• Riedel Daiginjo Glass
The narrow oval shape allows the aroma to be dispersed more effectively.

• Riedel Junmai Glass
The diamond-shaped Junmai Glass accentuates the complexity of the sake and its umami.

Discover the Charm of Namazake


Did you know sake – just like food – can also be raw?

Namazake, is a category of sake that is unpasteurised. As the yeast is still active, this gives the sake a refreshing acidity, punchy aroma and vivacious character. 

Here are a few namazake we think you should try:

• Eikun Black Label Jumani Daiginjo 
Clean body with a gentle aroma.

• Shichida Junmai Daiginjo Muroka Nama 
Smooth, fragrant with a rich rice aroma.

• Chikurin Otoro Junmai Ginjo Nama
Matured at a low temperature for one year to create a rounded mouthfeel. 
*available only at the city’super Times Square store at a very limited quantity

• Sugata Yume Sasara Junmai Ginjo Muroka Namagen 
Elegant aroma with a delicate texture.

A Sake Love Affair: Born


Established in 1860, Katoukichibee Shouten uses traditional methods to produce junmai sakes and age them at ice-cold temperature for a long period. Their sakes are served at Japanese royal family events and are recognised internationally.

city'super began to stock this well-loved brand in 2004 to give Hong Kong a taste of its royal worthy sakes.

Recommendations:
• Born Chogin Junmai Daginjo (Lacquer Pack)
The most premium of the Born collection, this sake has a polishing ratio of 20% and has been matured for 5 years at -8°C. Elegant and velvety with a lingering finish.

• Born Platinum Sakura Sake Cup
Many layers of white gold have been painted over this ceramic cup and then heated at 800°C to give it the ultimate shine.

• Born Gold Sakura Sake Cup
This ceramic cup has been painted with many layers of gold and then heated at 800°C for a golden, sparkling finish.

A Sake Love Affair: Dewazakura


Dewazakura’s name is inspired by “Dewa”, the ancient name of Yamagata prefecture, and the magnificent view of cherry blossoms on Mount Maizuru.

Its flagship sake Oka Ginjo has been a popular sake since its release in 1981 and a great contributor in promoting ginjo sake as well as the culture of jizake (local sake).

city'super has been partnering with Dewazakura since 1996.

Recommendations:
• Dewazakura Yukimegami 35 Junmai Daginjo
The Yukimegami rice from Yamagata prefecture has been polished down to 35% to create this sake. A super limited-edition product with a luxurious aroma and mellow mouthfeel.

• Dewazakura SWeeeeeT Kijoshu
In the final steps of brewing, alcohol is added instead of water to create a smoother and rounder texture and a sweeter taste.

A Sake Love Affair: Okunomatsu


With a long history and plenty of experience in sake brewing, Okunomatsu uses not only traditional brewing methods but also incorporates the latest technology to make sake with reliable quality. It is the first brewery to use a pasteuriser, which showers the sake immediately after bottling, and helps to keep the original flavour and aroma in the bottle.

Okunomatsu products has been appearing at city’super’s Sake Fair since 1996!

Recommendations:
• Okunomatsu George Sparkling Junmai Daiginjo
Sweet and refreshing with delicate bubbles.

• Okunomatsu Yusa Junmai Ginjo
Named after the family name of brewery, this is crispy with a smooth texture and a good balance of fruitiness and acidity, making it versatile for pairing with food.

Osaka’s Umeshuya Now in Hong Kong!


The renowned Umeshuya hailing from Osaka has over 80 years, and is a must-visit destination for all sake lovers. Here’s the great news: city'super is bringing this 100% Japanese brewed fruit liqueur to Hong Kong!

Who is Jean-Paul Hévin?

Founder Jean-Paul Hévin grew up baking pies with fruit from his father’s orchard, and his love of good food prompted him to pursue a career in pastry and chocolate making. He started training as a pastry chef in Paris, and eventually became a protégé of the legendary Joël Robuchon at the Hôtel Nikko.

After winning multiple international accolades, he opened his first shop in 1988 in Paris, followed by Japan and now Hong Kong, bringing fine craftsmanship and creativity to the world of chocolate.
