If you found a Larmand-Bernier bottle in the recycle bin you must have drank it by yourself after we left.

Stand-outs for me were the Taittinger and the Huet. All of the nebbiolos were excellent, maybe a slight nod to the Moccagatta, which surprised me.

The Domaine Macle was a stand-out in that it was crap. I really do not understand people making oxidized style wines. If I want sherry, I'll buy sherry.
