L’Abeille at Shangri-La Hotel

By |  November 30 2020

High technique at the service of seasonal ingredients is the hallmark of the inventive cooking of Philippe Labbé, the executive chef at L’Abeille in the Shangri-La Hotel in Paris. Signature dishes include duck foie gras coated in chocolate served two ways; crispy roasted quail; seared turbot à la plancha, and Poularde Hen au Torchon: fine Parisian dining, in other words.

The clear, concise wine list chosen to accompany Labbé’s cuisine is suitably, classically French. What separates it from other Michelin-starred lists, however, is its compression. There are stellar names and vintages here—from Coche-Dury to Chave, from Lafite to Krug. But in each case the temptation to fill the list with every vintage is rejected in favour of choosing the right one. With a small collection of New World, Italian, and German wines rounding up proceedings, L’Abeille’s list is a model of its kind.
