A special bottle of '97 Gruaud Larose that my son back back for me when he was in Paris.

I should mention, he bought it when he was 15 yrs old and on a school exchange in grade 10. He knew I liked wine and snuck it on the plane so his teachers didn't confiscate it.

A special bottle indeed and enjoyed by the whole family with grilled filet mignon, baked brussel sprouts and tossed Japanese salad.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

2005 Ch. Quinault (375) Hard tannins shed. Good to see as more in the vintage become approachable. Plenty of time though.

Tasted a few '10 Chateauneufs tonight with the Sunday brown bag group. Small sample, but compared to the few '09s we tasted back in August or September, I definitely prefer the '10s. Young & tannic now, but have fruit & structure. Will be picking up '10s for the cellar.

To celebrate the return of my nose to the land of the living:

1995 Vieux Telegraphe La Crau

Some grilled lamb chops, potatoes au gratin and some roasted brussel sprouts. It's good to be able to taste again.... Winner

The wine was absoultely lovely.

With Tyee and Lady Tyee:

- 1996 Billecart-Salmon Champagne Cuvee Elisabeth Salmon -- I haven't had this in years and this wine seems not to have changed much from what I remember, copper in colour, deep cherry and berry nose, floral, rich palate of berries, citrus, mineral, creamy, silky, persistent but not overwhelming mousse, long finish, just a beautiful wine

- NV H. Billiot Champagne Cuvee Julie -- big fruit bowl nose, seriously effusive mousse, tastes very young and fresh, apples and roasted nuts, really terrific Champagne that suffered only in following the Cuvee Elisabeth

- 2005 JJ Prum Riesling Wehlener Sonnenuhr Goldkapsel -- maybe the most impressive mix of acidity and fruit that you'll ever put into your mouth, stunning; this wine will live happily and provide great pleasure for decades

- 1998 Dusky Goose Pinot Noir Rambouillet Vineyard -- from Oregon, a powerhouse that was still opening more after a couple of hours in decanter, great nose of cherry and baking spice follows on palate, some earthiness and anise kicks in as well, remarkably long, long finish. Needs time, but a great Pinot Noir worth looking for

- 1999 Chateau Gruaud Larose St Julien -- there's some nice cassis aromas and flavours here, but unfortunately hidden behind a leafy, almost green note, medium length finish, not certain whether this was an entirely sound bottle but definitely a disappointment

Cheers!

Found an older bottle of Burgundy in the cellar:

1993 Hospices de Beaune Cuvee Hugues et Louis Betault Premier Cru

Surprisingly fresh and delicious.

I actually had it at home. I'm not sure which restaurant has the best foie gras preparation. W+A?
