TN: Tokyo Cancelled due to Typhoon so...2015 Coche-Dury Meursault 1er Cru Caillerets

We had to cancel our trip to Tokyo due to that Cat 5 Typhoon Jebi. Luckily SF has treated us very well these last few days.

The Raveneau starter with Dungeness crab salad was not too shabby either.

  • 2015 Coche-Dury Meursault 1er Cru Caillerets - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Meursault 1er Cru (9/7/2018)
    Drank next to the 15 Meursault. This is so much more elegant and floral. The Meursault is ripe and extracted and heavy from the oak. This is refined, uplifted so floral and no noticeable oak. Ultra classy and very unexpected for the vintage. Crazy long finish. It’s like drinking elegant liquid jasmine perfume. More Coche Corton Charlemagne than Meursault Perrieres.

How bad is the smoke in SF right now?

Haven’t seen much aside from the usual SF summer fog.

It is actually blue skies today.

You did Holmes style on this trip! #CocheWhore! [wink.gif]

Was just there the last few days as well. No noticeable smoke at all.

Fantastic note, Fred!

The smoke is really bad because everything Fred is busting is smokin’.

Well done Fred.

Where did you dine?

All over town.

Our favorite was hands down Mister Jiu. Every bit deserving of its Michelin 1 star and more.

Biggest letdown was Quince. 2 dishes blatantly over salted and one of them was a pasta dish. Stick with Cotogna.

Zuni chicken was as good as ever.

Our 22 month old loved the soup dumplings from Dragonbeaux and ate 2 rolls a day from ACME.

How was the Palace Hotel? Thinking about staying there. Anything good(or left) on the Zuni list? edit: Ah…just rechecked your IG post. That’s a good one!

we loved Quince. Sent a friend there. Found a bloody Band-Aid in one of his dishes.

I guess we shouldn’t be complaining about the salt then!

Palace is excellent. Even better if you’re a SPG/Marriott status and you can get upgraded for free.

Pro tip: book the lowest rate possible. When you arrive they will offer you upgrade options based on availability for an additional amount much less than what you would pay if you were to book in advance online.
