Reply to "January 2019 - What Are You Drinking?"

With some friends and a few bulgogi-marinated flank steaks with peppers & scallions (stolen from Sarbuze's IG).

NV Diebolt-Vallois Prestige Brut BdB - Nice autolytic style.  Mrs. VeV really enjoyed it.

2014 Domaine Rolet Arbois Chardonnay - good jura example of chardonnay. deep gold, viscous, green apples and nuts.  

2015 Bedrock Old Vine Zin - Good example of a big but balanced zin.  Bedrock makes such great zins. Fruit is in check, lots of brambles & pepper and enought tannin & acid to hold it all together.

2010 Clos St. Jean CDP - Good example of a big hot flabby disjointed mess.  Smells like CdP at first whiff then the alcohol hits.  No acid, real 'smoooooth' tannins, jam, then this alcohol heat burn creeps in at the end like after doing a shot of warm vodka.  Bought from PC for $19.95 and actually took delivery of it... so its got that going for it.    5 more to go....

2016 Raul Perez Ultreia Saint Jacques - After those two bruisers moving to this mid-weight gem of mencia was a delight.  Probably my WOTN in retrospect.
