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.

Wines for Michelin Gala

Michelin Gala dinner at Grand Hyatt Macau.

G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon - a little toasty.

2012 Lucien Le Moine Corton-Charlemagne Blanc - lovely and toasty nose, roasted corn, lemon.  Nice acidity but there is also ripeness on the palate.

2010 Chapoutier Ermitage Blanc Le Meal - this was more attractive than expected, with lots of oak, lots of toast, resin, and more mature.  Lots of depth on the palate, with a little bit of bitterness in the middle, with some ripeness and sweetness. 

2014 Matrot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru La Quintessence - not very memorable.

2015 Henri Magnien Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Estournelles St-Jacques - ripe fruit.

2008 La Fleur-Pétrus - smoky, earthy, nice and smooth on the palate now, but still got plenty of concentration.

2002 Doisy-Daëne - lovely nose of honey, marmalade, with botrytis and some acetone.

Full post on dinner is here.
