Reply to "August 2018: What are you drinking?"

Last night with Italian-style veal chop, rack of lamb, assorted pastas and antipasti, we had

- 2014 Billaud-Simon Chablis Les Clos -- young, tight, but after about 45 min. lots of apple, citrus, mineral, joined later by hints of honey, excellent acidity; probably needs another 2-3 years to develop into something really special

- 2004 Greppicaia Bolgheri -- lots of plum and mineral, silky and light on the palate but intense, with a very long finish with just a hint of fine tannins at the end, seems to be wide open now and should stay that way for a few more years
