Ledomduvin: Work Weekend (mise en place)

Work Weekend (mise en place)

Hibiki 17 Year-Old (2017 Edition) 

Discontinued in 2018, Hibiki 17 has become a trophy for whisky hunters. As the years pass, prices will soar, and this whisky will be hard to find. 

Krug Cuvée 170eme

Nice, light, crisp, fresh, mineral, and racy, it remains one of the best entry-level champagne in the market (despite its price) 😁👍🥂🍾

Louis Latour Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2016

Tasted a few times over the past year, it must breathe to fully reveal and express itself. Decanting is definitely suggested. Some slightly oxidative notes might also be present, yet I still find it interesting. 

Philippe Colin Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2019

Talented and terroir-driven, Philippe Colin makes stunning wines, and this Chevalier-Montrachet is a perfect example of it, ripe, generous, ample, complex and layered, yet balanced by enough acidity and minerality to keep it focused and precise. 

Château Palmer Margaux 2009

I love Palmer! And I have loved, bought, opened, tasted, served, and drank Palmer for the past 3 decades. I never get tired of it, and this 2009 is gorgeous. Surely one of the best vintages they made. Looooooooooove it. 

Vieux Château Certan Pomerol 2016

Back in 1997, I visited Pomerol and some of its Châteaux, including VCC, for the first time, and it was love at first sight. The tall, thin, and timid Alexandre Thienpont received us really well, shared his knowledge, let us taste at the barrels, and even opened a bottle, and the rest was history. VCC instantly became one of my favourite wines ever, and still to this day. Although this 2016 is way too young, it still drinks beautifully after one hour of decanting. Looooooooooove it. 

Cheers! Santé!
