BEL OMBRE IN ALL
ITS SPLENDOUR
Illustrations by Virginie Tennant
BEL OMBRE AND ITS SURROUNDINGS FORM ONE OF THE MOST HARMONISED
REGIONS OF MAURITIUS. ONE WOULD GET LOST WILLINGLY IN THE HEART OF THIS
SANCTUARY OF WILD NATURE FOR A CULTURAL, SPORTING OR HEDONISTIC MOMENT.
MONDAY
IN THE CAVE
OF BACCHUS
7 PM. Heritage Le Château
houses a restaurant with
a sumptuous menu. Jean,
the sommelier, welcomes
us for a cheese and wine
tasting.
The wine cellar is not very
big, but oh so charming. A
soothing melody welcomes
the visitors while Jean
serves a platter of cheeses,
carefully selected to
complement the nobility of
the world’s best wines.
Our sommelier speaks of
his art with great finesse.
His stories of the wines
and their vineyards take
us on a journey. The
cellar has more than
300 different wines from
France, South Africa, Italy,
Spain, Chile and more
amazing countries like
Lebanon. There are also
bottles from the Bordeaux
crus bourgeois and large
vineyards like Hamilton
Russell, as well as more
exclusive varieties, such
as De Toren Wine Estate
in South Africa, which
produces only two barrels
annually. A well deserved
moment of pleasure.
