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.

Blin, bling and Prum

Dinner at the Chairman in Hong Kong.

Blin's Édition Limitée Blanc de Blancs - a bit mineral and mild on palate.

2000 Réserve de la Comtesse - classic and smoky.  Good acidity balance and smooth on the palate.  Surprisingly a little sharp and alcoholic, and I could feel the alcohol burn a little as the wine went down the back of my throat.

L'Or de Parigot - nose of red fruits, slightly tart on the palate.

2007 Joh. Jos. Prüm Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese - classic nose of petrol, mineral and pear.  Light sweetness.  Served pretty cold but it was OK.

1998 d'Arenberg Shiraz The Dead Arm - very typical Aussie, with lots of sweet vanilla and coconut, along with smoky notes.  Reasonably smooth on the palate by now.

Full post on dinner is here.
