Wine Lab at Cloud Wine Keller

Tags

, , ,

The idea behind the wine lab is to allow wine drinkers to taste through an array of styles and form their own opinion about the taste and aroma profile of each bottle.

In this exercise, there are 12 classically-styled wines from our portfolio – a mix of white, rose, red, sparkling and sweet – from the Old and New World. Some will be young, a few with several years in bottle, and also a couple mature wines.

Our team has created a tasting sheet to record your notes, which can be later compared to our own interpretation. A glossary with many important wine terms will be used as an aid.

The tasting and discussion will take around 90 minutes, and after this activity, you will be more comfortable to select wine styles of your preferences, while we can be informed about your palate, and hopefully service you better.

To book please:

Email order@cloudwine.asia or

contact us via LINE cloudwinecommons

The available slots will be between Wednesday and Monday from 4pm to 9pm; starting this July 1.

Set at thb 1,000 per person, with thb 500 used to credit for your future purchase. We can allow maximum 8 persons per group.

Cloud Wine Keller is located in Baan Suanplu, Suan Plu Soi 2. Click here for map

A fabulous braised chicken dish

Tags

, , , , ,

Here we begin with the original version from Mark Bittman’s instructions:

bittman chicken

Ingredient list:

Chicken breast, tomatoes, lemons, capers, olives, olive oil and basil

Preparation:

  • Heat oven to 220 C. Combine 2 or 3 chopped tomatoes, the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 teaspoon capers and a handful of olives.
  • Lightly grease the pan with olive oil, then put the chicken in the pan and pour the tomato mixture over it.
  • Roast for 10 to 15 minutes, or until just cooked through.
  • Garnish: Chopped basil.

***

But suggest you extend the cooking and ingredients a little further with our adapted version

  1. Organic chicken leg and thigh (one piece per person)
  2. green olives (2-3 per piece  per portion)
  3. capers (1 table spoon per portion)
  4. cherry tomatoes (3-4 per piece per portion)
  5. chicken stock (one pack for 2-3 persons)
  6. lemon (1 piece) use half for 2-3 portions
  7. white wine (1/2 to 1 cup)
  8. sea salt
  9. pepper
  10. extra virgin olive oil

Preparation:

  1. Rub chicken with lots of olive oil, season with sea salt and pepper
  2. chop the capers
  3. chop the olives
  4. slice the cherry tomato without halving them
  5. Squeeze lemon juice into small bowl
  6.  Utensils you will need include a deep pan with lid or better cask iron casserole, dutch oven; you will need a thong, spatula, large spoon

Step 1

  1. Heat the pan to high heat; (ideally use one that is deep with a lid or use a cask iron casserole, dutch oven; hot is when a few drops of water sizzles quickly)
  2. Place the morsels skin-side down; it takes 3-4 minutes to brown (crispy), move gently so that the skin does not stick to pan (ref video here)
  3. Turn the morsels and move gentle for another 3-4 minutes
  4. (if you more pieces than the pan can fit; remove the first batch to rest and start again)

Step 2

  1. with the chicken in the pan, pour the stock, add the olives, capers and tomatoes
  2. reduce heat to simmer
  3. add 0.5 to 1 cup white wine
  4. make sure the liquid covers half of the thighs, not covering the skin
  5. season with lemon juice
  6. Close the lid almost entirely
  7. This slow braising will take roughly 45 min depending the size of the morsels
  8. If the liquid is evaporating you have two options. Either add more stock if the sauce needs more intensity or add pure water
  9. Check on liquids every once in a while and move the morsels around a little with a spoon
  10. Towards the end of cooking time, you can poke a sharp knife into thickest part of the leg, next to the bone and see if any blood is coming out; if the liquid is clear, the chicken is fully cooked. (Below photo is pan roasted in the oven; Bittman’s version)

bake chicken

Side dish

We enjoy eating this with any kind of salad and also sweet potatoes. Some grown here will do just fine, otherwise pick from Japan or the US.

  1. Poke the entire sweet potato with a fork
  2. Place in oven for 45-60 min at 180C
  3. When almost done the sugars on the skin start to caramelize
  4. Ready when sharp knife pokes in all the way
  5. Slice in half

sweet patoto

The fabulous 2017 Chablis by Thomas Pico

Tags

, , , , , ,

The face of a man who works tirelessly in the vineyard. Thomas also just returned from a market visit to Japan, and headed straight to the Les Penitentes tasting, an off-fair in Angers during the St Jean de Greniers and Salon de la Loire.

IMG_5814

After the meager allocation of the 2015 and 2016 vintages, and supplemented by the delicious Vin de France from Limoux, which is now discontinued, we are now fully stocked with the superb 2017 vintage Chablis. This wine is a blend of sites all in Courgis, a small village in the Chablis appellation with 250 inhabitants. The other well known family and producer are Alice & Olivier de Moor, which whom Thomas share similar philosophies, and also learned from.

pattes loup bottle Cr 64 bottle

William Kelly describes it: “..wafts from the glass with aromas of fresh apple, white flowers and marzipan, followed by a medium to full-bodied, broad and satiny palate that’s racy but enveloping, with superb cut and definition despite its comparatively broad shoulders and textural profile.” RP 92 p

While this is not classic, the style is still very much Chablis, from hand harvest and natural ferment and low sulphur at bottling. It is the kind of wine that carries itself very well with modern haute cuisine found around the world, where chefs focus on the purity of ingredients, reducing butter, and giving each dish an acid lick.

Maison Sota appears to be Japanese Chalet that is set in a narrow side street of the 11th arrondissement. Currently, the lower floor is empty, leavings guests guessing what will happen in the future – a dance hall?

The produce is selected from a top supplier in one of France’s departements. Chef Atsumi’s classical training and Japanese perfectionism is seen and tasted across the small and large menu set at Euro 95 / 140. I have rarely tasted sweetbread and pigeon of this quality and cooking.
