Krug Grande Cuvee. Rich, toasty with gripping acidity, plenty of lemon zest on the palate, and on the nose, refreshing floral aroma and the hint of exotic spices (cloves, cumin) which made the bottle especially great with the Chiuchow marinate. Of course, that's not to say I didn't enjoy the signature Chiuchow tea as much - there's nothing more appropriate to end a fine Chiuchow lunch with the finest Dancong Oolong tea prepared for us by the table, served on the traditional small teacup.
