China needs solutions to its aging problem, and fast.
Another highlight was our tasting at the Mandarin Oriental with 120 guests. Thirty-two different wines were on offer, and were grouped by village so that we could compare different styles of the villages and producers. It is rare that one can taste so many wines this way: many guests commented that it helped them to ‘get their head around' Burgundy and the different style of each village. The most popular were the 2008 Fixin, Clos de la Perrière from Domaine Joliet and 2007…
…down; random groups of Chinese tourists, who fan out across the walkways, ensnaring me in a web of Mandarin; a tangle of Indians buying snacks; countless Spanish speakers. A middle-aged maintenance man swaggers by with his hair slicked back in a duck's tail and a pack of cigarettes rolled up in one of his sleeves.

"He's staying at the Mandarin," Claire offers. "And you?" Francis asks, and we understand that he knows about the lover, probably has always known, and is at least open to the idea that the affair might still be going on.

In the main tasting room of the Mandarin Oriental hotel, several producers offered excellent examples of Ribera Del Duero wine, which is mostly made from Tempranillo. The law says it must contain 85%, yet most producers used 100% and aged the wine in mostly French oak.
Really nice showing of these absolutely delicious wines!
…. Pour 3 oz of orange vodka over it; I recommend Hangar One Mandarin, but use your favorite craft vodka. I use vodka since it's a neutral flavor base. Then, add 2 parts Pithy Orange Cream Soda, and one part Pithy Vanilla Cream Soda over ice. As always, if you cannot locate Pithy, I suggest any craft soda.
