I have been scouring Manila Philippines for matured vintages of serious Beaujolais wines and only managed to find it recently from the wine supplier Yats Wine Cellars. After tasting this 1994 Fleurie Beaujolais Cru, I am pleased to confirm that the great Beaujolais crus are indeed age-worthy. Too bad that other wine shops in Philippines do not stock these fine vintage Beaujolais Cru wine.
Wine lovers all over Asia know of this place and make the trip to Clark Philippines to load up on rare vintage wines that are often cheap in comparison to prices in their home towns. Moreover, old vintage wines especially those that are not that famous are hardly seen in Asia. Wine lovers go for better values in the Cru Bourgeois for Bordeaux and the lesser known domaines and negociants wines – especially the 1er cru wines – in Burgundy.
Yats also operates a fine-dining wine restaurant called Yats Restaruant and Wine Bar in Clark Philippines It is located inside the Mimosa Leisure Estate which also houses a 36-hole championship golf club called Mimosa Golf, as well as a casino. Clark is packed with action, so wine shopping aside, there are other meaningful things to spend some quality time. Yats Restaurant can cook up all sorts of gourmet meals.
