Every trip down to Singapore its a precariously journey for dogma.
You just never know how much wine he would lugged back every time..
On this recent trip, Dogma paid his tribute to Le Benaton, a local wine retailer specialized in off the chart Burgs. Having getting 3/4 drunk over tasting flights of 7 wines, Dogma began buying wines by the cases.
Remember, no matter how tough is your request, it would be fulfilled by a winohappy Dogma.
The Domaine Guillemard Pothier Clos Des Avaux BEaune Premier Cru 2000 was bought from Le Benaton at SGD55. With 9 years of age, it show some nice brickly red at the rim. And what a good clarity it shows in the glass!
The nose was developed and filled with tertiary aroma of red cherry, bramble and mushroom. Slight dark tea sweetness was detected. Not the most profound complexity and and lacking in some precision, but it was good value at this price point. On the palate, it was abit tired and lacking in laser sharp definition on the palate. Slightly short finish.
At this price point, i would go for it again!
To go along with the wine, Demona pop open the Carr's MELTS CHEESE Crackers that she got from London. It was crispy and cheese, great to go with a thick spread of cheddar cheese on top!
