Singapore Airlines Business Class Aug 2013

September 22, 2013

Some short notes about the wines served on board SQ600 Business Class on 30 Aug 2013 between Singapore and Seoul.

Bollinger Special Cuvée. Sweet lifted aromatics, a dash of honey tempered by toast, yeast, cream, vanilla and walnuts. Bright, slightly brazen and dry on the palate but possesses excellent depth and body. A lot better than Piper Hiedsieck red label. Very good.

2010 Weinhaus Ress Rheingau Riesling. Promises more on the nose than palate — apricot and caramel, nectar and a hint of sweet incense — but disappointing on the palate, only light to medium-bodied and lacking in real complexity.

2011 William Fevre Chablis. Vanilla, creme de la creme, firm flinty minerality. Medium-bodied. Could do with greater fullness and body. Good finish, though.

2009 Ch Loudenne. Saturated with dark fruits and blueberries with notes of violets, full yet  highly supple and lithe in the manner that can only come from the unique terroir of Bordeaux. Very good.

2011 Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz. Notes of licorice, redcurrants, forest floor, plum and fresh enamel, though milder than the usual full-bodied Barossa shiraz, finishing with the usual dash of spice and pepper.
