over the weekend....
2008 Quinta do Vallado Touriga Nacional Douro - Menh.
2013 Domaine de L'Ecu Muscadet 'Granite' - Forgot I had this, found it digging throught the cellar and decided to give it a shot. When young, this was a super-acid driven wet rocks in a bottle kind of muscadet. A couple of years on and it has gained textural weight, taken on a bit of a buttersctch note similar to aged chablis, and the nose has taken on notes of washed rind cheese. What a transformation. Really enjoyed it and makes me hope I've lost a few more of them.
2016 Mullineux Syrah
2015 Benoit Roseau Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes Cuvée de Rosette
Both the above with braised lamb shanks. Both good. The Mullineux was more fruit forward, the Roseau was the more savoury, briny of the two.
2015 Domaine Glinavos Vlahiko. Medium body, tart, lots of herbal notes. Nice.
