Ko Wine Pairings

I was lucky enough to have a chance to eat at Momofuku Ko in late December of 2008. Unfortunately, my fellow diners and I were not clever enough to write down the names of the incredible wines we enjoyed in the $80 pairing we chose.

Almost all of the wines (and a sake or two) were outstanding, well balanced. Some of the white wines virtually exploded with minerality or frutiness. Im quite sure one of them was a 2006 Riesling named Sakta Anna (sp?)

Does anyone have a list of the wine pairings they enjoyed at Ko or perhaps a link to a blog covering this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Because the menu changes so often, it might help to talk about some of the dishes that you ate. What they served in the beginning of December might differ from what they served at the end of the month, and as such the pairings would naturally change.

    Actually, I think your best bet is to contact them directly via email with this query.

      Gastrognome - I was there Saturday for lunch - the wine I think you are referring to is "Sankt Anna" a 2002 Spatlese Riesling from Mosel. It was also a standout for me in the wine pairing.
