27/02/2018

Rebecca LEUNG tasted several Bourgogne wines from the Bourgogne Week events. Please find them below and come taste them.

 

Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2016, Nicolas POTEL. Available at Enoteca Lee Garden Shop 2018. 

“Had this charming & expressive Bourgogne Pinot Noir, 2016, Nicolas POTEL at Enoteca Lee Garden Shop 2018 #BourgogneWeek tasting earlier. Full of finesse and delicate characters, lots of fresh red bay fruit, cherries & sweet spices with hints of floral notes. Love its silky & soft tannins, very juicy and quite a long finish! Excellent one to drink before meal or pair with poultry dishes.”

 

Gevrey-Chambertin, 2009, Domaine GEANTET-PANSIOT. Available at Enoteca Causeway Bay shop.

“An enjoyable #BourgogneWeek tasting at Enoteca Causeway Bay shop. Beyond the playful label this Gevrey-Chambertin, 2009, Domaine GEANTET-PANSIOT is a rich and compact wine, abundant ripe lush wild berries & red plums. Moderate acidity, rounded tannins, well structured. Nicely balanced with hints of cedar wood, vanilla and spicy understones. Decently long finish. Good to drink now but it has a pretty long way to go!”

 

Vosne-Romanée, 2011, Domaine ARNOUD-LACHAUX. Available at etc wines pedder building shop.

“etc wines pedder building shop showcased this Vosne-Romanée, 2011, Domaine ARNOUD-LACHAUX during their #BourgogneWeek #instoretasting yesterday, a savoury and fruit forward wine indeed. Blueberries, Black and Red cherries, dates and a bit of violets. Some tobacco and spice in the aftertaste. A touch of integrated oak. Supple with moderate length. Good to drink now, and I’m thinking roasted pigeon dishes!”

 

Chablis Grand Cru”, les Blanchots Vieilles Vignes, 2013, Domaine BILLAUD-SIMON. Available at etc wines pedder building shop

Perfect timing to taste this “Chablis Grand Cru”, les Blanchots Vieilles Vignes, 2013, Domaine BILLAUD-SIMON” on such warm spring day today!  The super friendly staff of etc wine pedder building shop poured me a glass of this tasty white this evening at their #BourgogneWeek #instoretasting. Concentrated nose and rich mouth feel, amazed by its sexy spices, ripe loquat & refreshing citrus at the beginning , then further impressed by the generous fruit & other flavours such as peach, pine nuts and vanilla. Balanced, complex & refined. Long and Clean finish with tropical fruit. This wine is on promotion price at HKD612 for the time being, good to keep it in cellar for another 5-8 years but one have to be patient!
