If you like your fine wines, and having a place to go for some high-brow happy hour, Millesime is the place to be.
Every Monday to Fridays, Millesime hosts a Gourmet Hour, which is essentially their version of happy hour, and it starts around the time one kicks off work, between the time of 5.30pm to 7.30pm. If you’re the sort that does not take to pub peanuts nor cheap finger food too well, then you will be right at home at Millesime’s Gourmet hour – only the best, ingredients and best gourmet snacks will be served, free-flow, between the appointed time.

You will get to enjoy gourmet sandwiches, all on the house, and you need only pay for your drinks. The selection of gourmet bites will differ depending on availability of ingredients. The drinks themselves can range anywhere between RM40 to RM1000 for a glass of wine, depending on what bottle tickles your fancy. Think top end Bordeaux wines, and you won’t be far off the mark. Of course there are also more affordable tipples to choose from, such as the Oxford Landing Estates Chardonnay priced at RM38 per glass, or if wine is not your thing, they serve beers too such as one of my all time favourites – the Weihenstephan.
choose your poison!
Sandwiches with high end fillings such as Smoked Salmon, Smoked Duck, the terrifically sinful melt in your mouth Kobe Beef and washed down with wines of your choice are just the tip of the iceberg. One of my favourites served by the chef is the Haloumi Cheese with Beetroot – if you are a fan of beetroot and its earthy flavour you will love this. Coupled with the salty and rich Haloumi, it’s just too good for words. A less sinful item to order, if you are going easy on the red meats, would be the lightly Grilled Portobello Mushrooms seasoned with olive oil. These go superbly well with the refreshing Oxford Landing Estates Chardonnay, especially on a hot, muggy evening. If you are a wine connoisseur, you will be happy to know that Millesime also offers the 5 famed first growths of Bordeaux by the glass, including one of the most sought after wines in the world right now, the Chateau Lafite Rothschild. These wines by the glass here, priced at approximately RM500 upwards, are really something else. Order this and it would truly be “Gourmet Hour” at Millesime!
