Crown Wine Cellars, Hong Kong

I was invited by a Chinese friend, wine lover, to eat and drink in this restaurant dedicated to wine and with an underground cellar (Thank you Alexander )

We drank :
Laurent Perrier rosé
Meursault d’Alain Coche Bizouard Goutte d’Or 1er cru 2002, Simply very good (anis, smoked hazelnuts ?)
Château Palmer 1970, a very good bottle, soft tannins, aromas of truffles. A very fine bottle, the second was still closed.
Tiganello 2006, hard to taste after Palmer : this wine was quite dry, closed tight. Better to taste again in 10 years ?

Following, we went to a trendy bar “Sugar”, with an amazing view of Hong Kong’s skyline and a drop of Cognac Paradis from Hennessy.
