So to open up the first meal of my 2014 Asia trip what better than some plane food, in this case, Air China First Class (yay miles) on the way over Alaska.
2011 Hospices de Beaune Volnay 1er Cru Cuvée Blondeau. 88 points. The nose was dominated by oak, which continued to distract on the palate. But to find a 1re cru Burg on a plane? Way too young, but nice pinot notes.
A number of cured meats, mayo, cheese, etc things which tasted decent but are a bit odd to the modern American palette. The left might be pastrami!
Overall, a great start to the trip! Air China gets an A+, as that was a great first class. Now, I wouldn’t stack it up against a great restaurant, but it was solidly pleasant and compared to most plane food…
