Hanoi has always intrigued me, drawn me, a visually beautiful city with a certain charm and character, it smiles at you through the cracks and exhibits style and elegance even amidst occasional chaos and degradation.
Hanoi is also a city being transformed, being modernized and in certain quarters, taking on the signs of wealth and progress that are universal to cities around the world today, some signs good and some signs bad.
Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday at 5pm, at 27 Xuan Dieu Tay Ho for a tasting of Georges Duboeuf Crus of Beaujolais!
Plus come and enjoy a 20% discount on these wines until the next Thursday.
Georges Duboeuf Crus is a worldwide distinguished pioneer in Beaujolais.
Fleurie is one of the ten crus of Beaujolais and one of the most sought after. Georges Duboeuf is one of the best known winemakers in this region to the south of Burgundy, and has been nicknamed the King of Beaujolais.
Classic Fleurie with fresh cherry fruits and a fragrant, floral perfume. Concentrated fruit and light tannic presence are testament to the cru status of this wine. An attractive wine with a silky texture.
A literal English translation of Clos des Mouches would be ‘Field of Flies’ however, in the local vernacular the site was called ‘Clos des Mouches a Miel’ which means ‘Field of Honey Flies’ as the site was once a renowned spot for beekeeping. The Clos des Mouches, Premier Cru, AOC sits on a hill which borders Pommard and the wines certainly share some of its neighbours renowned power and depth…………
