Exotics at Becasse

If you want to explore unusual wines, you may order the degustation menu at Becasse. We had
- 2009 Sylvaner, Domaine Jorg, Alsace
- 2009 Grace Koshu, Yamanashi, Koshy (Japan)
-2009 Alvaro Castro, Dao, Portugal
as whites, and
-2009 Pinot Noir, Oakridge, Yarra Valley
-2007 Meandro Do Vale Meao from Douro, Portugal, which is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cao and Tinto Sousao
-2003 Tokaji, Chateau Derejla.

Is this just for effect or did it make sense, you may ask. Not easy to answer. Generally all wines were good food wines. As a result, they did not stand out individually other than the Douro from Portugal, which I thought was a great wine.
