A taste of Petrus & Vega Sicilia at Benoit - NYT

A taste of Petrus & Vega Sicilia at Benoit - NYT | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Benoit, Alain Ducasse's NYC restaurant, is serving up a stunning range of wines in tasting samples.

 

Is blowing a couple of thousand dollars on a bottle of Château Pétrus a bit out of your budget? Always wondered what Vega Sicilia tastes like? Now you can try a range of blockbuster wines in 1oz (~30ml) samples.

 

A range of wines are kept in a dispensing machine, allowing sommelier André Compeyre to offer a stunning range.

 

If only I were in New York, though the pratice of offering tasting samples is all the rage from Hong Kong to London.

Hong Kong wine tech - SMH

Hong Kong wine tech - SMH | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

It seems that Hong Kong is where the latest wine technology is taking root.

 

Many people joke about wine and the Chinese at their expense. How many times have I heard the Bordeaux & Coca Cola story. Well, it looks to me like there's a lot more going on in Hong Kong than bigotted fools think!

 

Read about the interactive tastng experiences at Amo Eno. I want to hop on a plane now and investigate. Anyone seen anything similar??
