Lovely wines in Hong Kong

Have just arrived in Hong Kong for a brief stay. Dined last night at Felix, on top of the Peninsula. Most enjoyable! Four lovely wines - Cape Mentelle Chardonnay 2010, a really delicate, lightly oaked wine, Chablis her Cru Leflaive 2006, crisp, lean, racy and with some age on it, and Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella - a beast of a wine! And to finish, Ch. Guiraud 1998, delicate, ripe, some botrytis.

Life is clearly not like this every day. But it's good when it is like this a bit!


  1. Nice one.
    May I recommend the rooftop swimming at the Harbour Grand.

  2. Lovely idea. Time has got the better of me - and I am now recovering after a crucifying run up the Peak today - that started with 20 mins of solid climb! Wasted...utterly wasted.
