Wines at the Michelin gala dinner

Dinner at Studio City in Macau, organized by the Michelin Guide and Robert Parker Wine Advocate.

Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut - a little sweet on the palate.

Perrier-Jouët Blason Rosé - yeasty with a nice mousse, with more red fruits in the nose.

2013 Rémi Jobard Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières - fragrant, almost floral nose, with very little of the typical toasty notes from a Meursault.  Second glass showed a little more flint and minerals.  Some ripeness on the palate but dry on the finish.  Pairing with the laksa crab really brought out the dry and spicy finish from the alcohol.

2006 Latour à Pomerol - very ripe and minty, slightly earthy nose.  Surprisingly silky on the palate.  Sweet fruit on the nose but not too sweet on the palate.

2006 La Fleur-Pétrus - a bit more earthy, with eucalyptus and a little hint of savory notes.  Also showing some ripe fruit but kinda dry on the palate.

2004 Pol Roger Brut - rich on the palate, kinda sweet with a good acidity balance.

2006 Hosanna - good amount of ripeness here, and showing a little bit of tannins.

2006 Trotanoy - pretty fragrant nose, with a little hint of pencil lead.  More tannic than the other 06s.

1888 Quinta do Vallado ABF Old Tawny Port - very sweet, very concentrated on the palate, with plenty of nutty flavors as well as raisins, along with a little preserved tangerine peel (陳皮).

Full post on dinner is here.
