In the picturesque setting of the Maldives, an exceptional event is on the horizon. From the 6th to the 8th of November, Nova, a rising star among Maldivian resorts, will play host to the renowned vintner, Nicolas Maillart, for a three-day extravaganza dedicated to the world of wine and oenology.
This exclusive event promises to be a journey through time and taste, celebrating centuries of winemaking heritage.
A Legacy Rooted in Tradition
The story of the Nicolas Maillart family dates back to 1753, a testament to their enduring commitment to the art of viticulture and the craft of producing exquisite sparkling wines.
Today, led by the ninth generation, this legacy continues to flourish in the industry. Their unwavering dedication to precision winemaking techniques is the hallmark of their success.
Champagne Nicolas Maillart, bearing the family name, goes beyond the realms of winemaking. Their commitment to environmental sustainability shines through with the installation of 130 square meters of photovoltaic panels in 2009.
These panels generate a staggering 90% of the power required, substantially reducing their carbon footprint. This dedication ensures that enjoying their delightful wines comes with the assurance of preserving the environment.
A Culinary Extravaganza
Collaborating with the idyllic Nova Island, this event is set to feature a showcase of Nicolas Maillart’s exceptional new wine offerings.
Guests will have the unique opportunity to delve into the rich history and background of the winery.
The highlight of these three extraordinary days will be an exclusive dinner at Flames, the resort’s fine grill house restaurant, where culinary creations are expertly fire-kissed to perfection.
The menu at Flames will be nothing short of exquisite, featuring Fine de Clair oysters, expertly gratinated with champagne sabayon and tarragon, a mouthwatering Mud Crab Ravioli in a delectable sauce, and a chargrilled Kurobuta Pork Chop accompanied by garlic puree, purple potatoes, and aromatic pommery mustard.
Sipping Excellence: A Champagne Degustation
Guests will have the privilege of sampling ten different exclusive Nicolas Maillart champagnes, immersing themselves in the sweetest essence of France.
The spotlighted products include six bottles of the signature Nicolas Maillart, Chaillot’s Gillis, a 100% Chardonnay delight, and six bottles of Mont Martin, a 100% Pinot Meunier masterpiece.
Nestled amidst pristine lagoons teeming with vibrant marine life, Nova is a paradise on earth where luxury harmoniously blends with natural beauty in the heart of the Indian Ocean.
This November, in collaboration with esteemed winemaker Nicolas Maillart, Nova invites guests to embark on an extraordinary journey into the world of champagne, promising to tantalise taste buds and ignite the passion of every gastronome.
Abdulla Aboobakuru, General Manager of Nova Maldives, sums up the significance of this partnership, saying, “This collaboration marks a significant milestone in Nova’s journey as we continuously strive to elevate our guest experience. Joining forces with Nicolas Maillart, whose commitment to quality mirrors our own, is truly exciting.
