Last night with the BMan's, Mimik and my better half at Lannes et Pacifique.

2008 H. Blin, Champagne, Millisime

2016 CVNE, Rioja, Monopole Blanco

2005 Domaine de la Janasse, CdP, Chaupin

2011 Peter Michael, Les Pavots

2008 Sadie Family, Columella

2005 Chateau Pavie Macquin, St. Emilion

Everything showed well. Hard to pick a WOTN, but it might have been the Pavie Macquin which surprised me after a really poor showing of this wine in August with some of the Chicago group. This bottle was excellent, which gives me hope for my last bottle. The Pavots was outstanding also. My least favourite red was the Chaupin.

First time for us at this BYOW resto. Food was very good. The place would be noisy on a busy night which it wasn't luckily for us. Will go back.

Thanks for posting the wines, Steve.  My favourites were the Les Pavots and the Chaupin, least favourite the Columella.  mrs bman liked the Les Pavots best too, the Chaupin not so much.  To each their own!

Great night with great wines. It was great to see Bman and Mrs Bman and Steve8 and J. Loved the  food and like the resto if not a little loud. 

All wines showed well but the Chaupin cdp Janasse and the Pavie Macquin were my favourites. The pavots showed structure but I felt a bit disjointed since it was too young but I’m very honoured and grateful bman brought the bottle.

see you next time very soon
