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.

Bongwater with Gaggan

Dinner at Gaggan's home in Bangkok.

2017 Emilien Feneuil Les Ruisseaux, dégorgée le 10 Decembre 2020 - definitely tasted like a meunier on the palate. The nose was fragrant and kinda ripe, with a little sweet vanilla. Good acidity on the palate.

2008 Hospices de Beaune Corton-Clos du Roi Cuvée Baronne du Bay, elevé et mis en bouteille par Lucien Le Moine pour Juli Soler, ⟪Rte. El Bulli⟫, en magnum - very fragrant nose, plenty of sweet fruit, almost a little floral, and perhaps a little savory as well. After opening for more than an hour, the classic toasty notes came out on the nose. NOW it's a rich Burg.

2013 Henri Bonneau Cuvée Marie Beurrier, en magnum - decanted about 1½ hours after opening, this wine finally opened up after about another 1½ hours in the decanter. Fragrant nose with woodsy notes as one would expect. Softer on the palate now.

Bonnet-Ponson Griblanc - very metallic on the nose, like an Anjou pear. Acidity was pretty high on the palate.

Full post on dinner is here.
