Marko Kovac Communicating Gaggan 🇹🇭 Asia’s no.1 & the World’s no.5 restaurant + Head of #Karakterre, Europe’s leading natural wine salon—annually in Vienna 🇦🇹
A rare bottle from a winegrower that is rarely seen. Every now and then one has to ask if he’s still with us. Hence, it very much embodies the world before social media.

I love you Burgundy but there’s a problem. It’s really tough to eat out and the excitement on the winegrower front does not match restaurant experience. Thanksgod for Caves Madeleine in Beaune which keeps raising the bar.

Over at Domaine Bizot, the soon-to-be-bottled 2017s are as pure, focused and driven by elegance as they ever were. The actual news is over the road in the vineyards, though, & the way the domaine is using old-school techniques in search of new knowledge and information.

The guy on the right here @drula9 just opened @getwetbkk in Bangkok, Southeast Asia’s first true organic/biodynamic bar a vins, on par with those in Paris, Copenhagen, New York or Tokyo. Together with his partners in crime @gaggan_anand & @rajeshkbkk, he’ll be making new wine history in this fast developing part of the world. He and I travelled together a lot, spoke a lot, tasted a lot, ate a lot....always with Wet as part of the conversation. So, having seen and worked on behind the scenes, I am confident Wet will be shaping palates of one whole continent in the years to come-be it for Vlad’s selection of bottles or Gaggan and @rydoanton89’s menu offerings, @pigatemypizza & @wine.bully1789 on further controls, landing this ship safely where no ship has gone before #getwetbkk

French essentials and Lolo’s always got the goods when you’re in Beaune.

All these years later, I am still such a sucker for Burgundy, can’t help it. The drive from Beaune through Nuits St Georges and Vosne-Romanee to end in Chambolle-Musigny. As well as to the other side, through Pommard & Volnay onto Meursault. Include the hidden gems of Saint Aubin and Saint Romain.

A cold day in Burgundy calls for some ☀️ from the south. Who better to place a call with than Cyril Fhal, also known as the best coffee barista among the winegrowers.

Is there a better location for the lovely @quinsouparis then across the street from Ferrandi, the school of culinary arts in the 6th arr? Chef Antonin Bonnet still teaches a class or two there...but his base is now in the kitchen of Quinsou, an ex cafe where students and professors used to hang out. Quick lunch there was tasty & fun, paired with an equally beautiful & focused wine list. Another great @telescopecafe recommendation.

A rare winegrower selfie a.k.a Michel Autran moments before realising that us cooking carbonara at his house was possibly not the best idea.
