Time Out Hong Kong Dining Awards 2009: Wine selection

Posted:
 

Winner

L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon

The rumour is, their sister restaurant in Macau cellared many big ticket wines when it opened in March 2001 and now the Hong Kong outlet is benefitting from its older sister’s early investments. If you are looking for bragging rights, may we list a few bottles that will empty your savings? 1959 Romanée-Conti Grand Cru, 1900 Château Margaux, 1961 Château Haut-Brion. “Only drink good wines,” says Joël Robuchon (pictured), “or else just drink Diet Coke.” 4/F, The Landmark, 11 Pedder St, Central, 2166 9000.

Almost famous

Pierre has a well-edited, well-researched list of labels with some at great value from boutique wineries. 5 Connaught Rd, Central, 2522 0111.

Cépage’s wine list is 83 pages long, and their two wine cellars have close to 6,000 bottles of old and new world labels. Talk to any sommelier around town and watch their eyes light up when you mention this place’s selection. 23 Wing Fung St, Wan Chai, 2861 3130.

Reader’s choice

A tie! Have you visited Caprice’s new wine and cheese cellar room? It would appear so. And you also love the great choice of Italian labels at DiVino. G/F, 73 Wyndham St, Central, 2167 8883.
