The best wine selection on Disney’s Fantasy
Disney Vacation Guide to Remy: the best wine on the Disney Fantasy
When the new Disney Fantasy launches on its first voyage this March 31, there’s a whole world of magic at sea. The dining options are as varied as the entertainment and Remy tops the list for adult-only fine dining, where wine is a large part of the experience. Here’s a little “taste” of what you can expect:
Remy is an upscale, romantic restaurant offering French-inspired cuisine and panoramic ocean views from its top-deck location. The menu is created by award-winning chefs – think smoked bison draped over a fennel and blood range salad or Australian Wagyu with tangy garlic potatoes. Even the dining linens are by Frette, now located in Milan.
Once guests make their reservations at Remy, they can meet with a sommelier in the glass-walled wine room to sample and select their dinner wines. Remy’s main wine lists features approximately 200 wines from around the world, a large selection being vintage wines from many French regions . If you have the budget, try a rare wine from the exclusive list at Remy’s Vault.
The Wine Vault
Remy’s Vault includes 22 wines of the best on the ship, among them a 1961 Château Latour and a 1947 Château Cheval Blanc (the food critic in “Ratatouille” requested this). Some vintages retail at $25,000. When ordered, a white-gloved sommelier delivers the wine in an elegant velvet box.
The Signature Cocktail
“Collette” is the signature cocktail at Remy. Handcrafted at your table, it is a blend of pear vodka and the private label Taittinger Champagne, then garnished with a mint leaf, fresh blueberry and dried apricot.
If you crave a drink following your meal, your choices include Rémy Martin Louis XIII Rare Cask and a 43-year-old Camus Cuvee 4.176 Cognac. These rare cognacs are served ceremoniously from a Baccarat crystal decanter.
