Bastardo ( Trousseau) makes me think of Portugal.

Glad you liked it.

Last night

1998 Charles Ellner, Champagne, Brut Prestige (a little too much apple/cider for me)
2009 Marc Morey, Chassagne-Montrachet
2003 Domaine des Baumard, Savennieres, Clos du Papillon
2003 Albert Bichot, Aloxe-Corton, Domaine du Pavillon, Clos des Marechaudes (good wine, but not sure I would have identified it as pinot noir blind)
2004 Leoville Les Cases, St. Julien
2001 Antinori, Guado al Tasso
2001 Henschke, Shiraz, Mount Edelstone (this is 12 years old? I can't imagine how huge it must have been on release)
2010 Saint Cosme, Condrieu
1980 Moulin Touchais, Coteaux du Layon (nice, but not as much as the 1985 I had last weekend)

I think that was everything. If I didn't write any comment beside a wine, it was just excellent. I would hold the 04 LLC. My WOTN was either the Guado al Tasso or the Condrieu.

Excellent indeed, and very hard to find in our market the last couple of years. Frown
Agree as well. I had a bottle of the 2001 last Fall and it was very impressive.

2007 Pupille Poggio Valente Morellino di Scansano Riserva

This wine showed a lot of concentrated flavour when it was opened, but it was oh so tight. Much better on the third day. I'm going to wait 2-3 years before opening any more bottles.

Just found a bottle of white port that I didn't know I had in my cellar. Any good recipes worth sharing?

It took almost 2 hours in the decanter for this wine to even show anything, but when it did after the 3rd hour it was splendid.

ya it's strawberry season here so they're cheap

take a bunch of strawberries juice it,
3 parts white port
1 part tequila
add lime to taste.

or take a peach and soak in it int he white port, when ready to serve, take a dash of brandy and place over.

or the traditional way is to use pears and soak it in white port.

These dishes would be significantly more fun if there was fire involved.
