Have you tried the Silex or Pur Sang? If not, you should.

Yes, great time and some pretty good wines opened as well. This is what I remember being opened last night.

2002 Maison Leroy Meursault: In a great spot with ample fruit and nice acidity to balance.
2006 Peter Michael (vineyard ?) This bottle had a slight hint of cork taint.
1986 Maison Leroy Volnay Santenots: Drinking at peak now; in fact, not going to get better. But, fantastic now.
2007 Chasseur Pinot Noir Rayhill Vineyard: Nice drinking this along the Leroy. Both wines good examples of their respective regions. This bottle got better with air. I would hold if I had any.
1997 Pertimali Brunello di Montalcino: This wine was decanted 1 1/2 hours and was still a baby. Great wine and my WOTN even though it showed so young. Wouldn't open unless given 3+ hours in decanter or 5 more years in bottle.
2002 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon: Another well made wine and another wine needing more time.

tonight with rotisserie chicken, a bottle of 2009 Cono Sur Pinot Noir Ocio, from Chile's Casablanca Valley. My curiosity was piqued by this wine's price, so I picked one up to try. It is immediately reminiscent of some inexpensive New Zealand Pinot Noirs that I've had, juicy but simple one-note cherry flavours, medium finish. It's a decent wine and should sell around $20-25 in my market, but it costs way more than that.

On the plus side, it comes in a heavy bottle with maybe the deepest punt I've ever seen on a 750 ml bottle. That's gotta be the prime justification for the price.

Seaquam,

I hope your rotisserie chicken was better than mine. Had a coupon and a gift card for Swiss Chalet, so picked up some take-out. The chicken was undercooked so I took it back and they gave me another complete meal, but the chicken was again undercooked. I couldn't be bothered to go back again, so I'm making chicken stock right now!

Regarding the Cono Sur, is that their organic Pinot?


Punch it , Chewie!

How was it? I tend to like my Champagne young, but I thought the 2002 Les Chetillons needed more time.


Just one more sip.

IIRC the son took over production recently due to the passing of Didier. If correct, what vintage did the change happen and has there been a noticeable change in style or quality? I've only had a couple and enjoyed each immensely.

DD died in 2008, snipes.

I'm still drinking vintages prior to death, but have heard good things about more current releases as well.

Indeed! And, we did!
Our meal started with a trio of ceviche, the grilled octopus, and raw tuna tostadas. The sparkler was terrific with the octopus, and the acidity of the ceviche cut through the oak of the chardonnay. Very pleasant pairings.
Fun place with a great staff. Not so learned in the ways of wine service, but we made due. Wink

How was that? I have 1 bottle that I was looking at yesterday. Is there any point in waiting a bit longer to open it?


No harm in waiting but I think it is ready. I decanted it 1 hour. Max thought it would still improve though.

Last night:
2008 Aubert Pinot Noir UV Vineyard

We live down the street from La Fisheria but just learned about it a few weeks ago. I'm very happy to hear that it is BYOB and we will dine there soon.

That was my first experience with a Dagueneau wine, but it certainly won't be my last. It seems like the post-2007 stuff (Silex & Pur Sang) is readily available, but not so much with the back vintages. Any suggestions?
