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.

GohGan 2017 pairing

Dinner at the GohGan pop-up in Seoul.

Jacques Lassaigne Les Vignes de Montgueux Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut - nice minerality, with good acidity but surprisingly rounded on the palate for this extra brut.  A hint of bitterness on the finish.

2015 Didier Grappe Côtes du Jura Novelin - smooth on the palate, finish a little short, and almost a little bitter.

Le Coste Rosato, vintage unknown - a little pungent... was there sulfur?  Nose of red fruit.  A little better later showing more sweet fruit.

2014 Yvon Métras Beaujolais - a very nice gamay. 

2014 Domaine de Chassorney Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Puits de Chaux - kinda soft on the palate, with nice fruit and a little leather.

Boksoondoga Makgeolli (福順都家 손막걸리) - love this naturally sparkling makgeolli, since I like drinking slightly acidic, slightly milky drinks.

Kooksoondang Songjeolju (국순당 송절주) - traditional Korean liquor brewed with pine needle joints, angelica, azalea, and other flowers.  A little sweet on the nose, with Manuka honey, and oxidized like vin jaune.  On the palate the pine and medicinal flavors were pretty heavy.  Definitely an acquired taste.

Full post on dinner is here.
