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 spicy Thai food

Dinner at Sorn in Bangkok.

2020 La Grange Tiphaine Les Grenouillères - nose showing a little tropical fruit, honey, perhaps not quite pineapple, definitely mineral and flinty. A little sweet-ish on the palate. Nice and pleasant to drink, and works well with spicy food.

1997 François Gaunoux Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens - first whiff there was more prominent notes of leather on the nose, then came some black cherries. Not the very floral or fruity kind of wine, but still pretty nice.

1987 Yquem, en demi-bouteille - showing plenty of marmalade and dates, and a little savory on the nose. Almost a little like salted plum, plus definitely got that aged tangerine peel feeling. Some acetone on the nose, too.

Full post on dinner is here.
