This was one of those times where it was hard to tell which was better - the food or the wine. The wines were great, but for me, the food was the real high point of the evening.
The 1996 Gaecj & JP Verjino CdP was a complete surprise. I thought I knew a little about CdP, but this wine was a real surprise for me. Vey complex aroma, not completely typical of CdP in the amount of red liquorice. And the palate was not a replay of the aroma flavours, but offered a much more traditional CdP profile with savoury spiciness, leather and dark fruit.
I mostly like red wines, but I thought both of the white CdPs were outstanding. I wish I had bought more of the 09 Grand Veneur La Fontaine.
