This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

6 for bistro

Dinner at Le Mieux Bistro in Hong Kong.

1990 André Beaufort Grand Cru Brut - A bit of wood on the nose.  Ripe and sweet mid-palate with an acidic finish.  Caramelized and a little metallic.

1996 Vilmart Cuvée Création - nose was caramelized, grassy with notes of flint.

2002 Vincent Girardin Bonnes Mares - fragrant and fruity with strawberry notes.  A little sharp and alcoholic on the nose.  Animal, leather, potpourri.  Pretty full-bodied.  Very nice and sweet.  A little feminine.

2006 Clos Rougeard Saumur-Champigny Le Bourg - a little sharp, with smoke, exotic spices, pine needle and a little floral.

1996 Guigal Château d'Ampuis - classic Côte-Rôtie, with a lovely, beautiful nose of dried herbs, flowers, sweet fruit and a little leather.  This bottle drank very nicely, and I'm glad I brought it.

1998 Henri Bonneau Cuvée Marie Beurrier - fruity with lychees, rose, a little medicinal and smoked meats.

Full post on dinner is here.

  1. I love wine tasting. Me and husband used to travel just to taste different wines. However, I noticed that my teeth are getting yellowish. My Fullerton dentist says it's because of drinking too much red wine. I then decided to drink just occasionally.
