Friday, with fresh oysters, prawns, ling cod, spring salmon, etc

- NV Piper Heidsieck Brut

- 2013 Château Fieuzal blanc

- 2014 William Fevre Chablis Montmains

- 2011 Desjourneys Moulin à Vent

The Bordeaux was great with oysters, excellent acidity and a slight herbal edge that shone with the mignonette and fresh grated horseradish. The Moulin à Vent was poured for us by the restaurant which had just received a small stash, and it was as they described: more like a good Burgundy than a Beaujolais. An eye-opener. The Chablis seems about at peak now, and was my WOTN. There was also a glass of Sherry and some marinated olives to start, but I didn’t catch the name of that wine.

Last night, 2019 Lafond Tavel Rosé Roc Epine, darker than most, pretty good.
