Merry X-Mas! Off to Bali!

Season’s greetings from Malaysia. Wishing you all a joyful time! It’s early morning and we’re off to Bali for some more good times. Recommendations are welcome!



Let me introduce you to Daisy and Donald, leading performers of a pre-Christmas dinner (already!) with friends. Stuffed with chestnuts, red-wine-marinated-prunes and cranberries, accompanied with Port-wine-sauce, and with traditional Blaukraut (red cabbage) and Semmelknödel (bread dumplings) on the side they were quite tasty. Yeah! Can’t hide my pride! :=)

2000 Châteaux de Lascaux „Les Secrets“, Côteaux du Languedoc


Of course there were also non-corked bottles for Christmas. This 2000 Cuvée Les Secrets from Château de Lascaux was superb. Tannins were softened after 7 years but fruit was still there. Secondary aromas such as garrigue flavours gave the wine complexity. Really a nice Cuvée made of Syrah and Grenache underlining once again the ageing potential of selected Languedoc wines.

1986 Chateau Lynch-Bages, Pauillac


Too bad! Corked! Merry Christmas then… :=(
No there are definitely worst things in life than a corked wine, and I shouldn’t be that cynical on Christmas.
