Friday night w/roast duck breast-- second time this week, but could not resist-- and some nice appetizers at our home and at the restaurant:

- NV Henriot Champagne Blanc de Blancs -- dough dominates nose, with pear, bread, lemon and roast nut flavours, feels rich on the palate, good acidity, good mousse, fairly long lip-smacking finish, delicious

- 2012 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Les Baronnes -- lots of grapefruit, lemon, decent acidity, clean and crisp, nice

- 2003 Delas Freres Hermitage Les Bessards -- still young and dark, powerhouse Hermitage, berry, plum, fig, spice cake, mushroom, black olive, good acidity, silky, very long finish, outstanding wine

- 2004 Spinifex Shiraz-Viognier -- like fresh-crushed ripe raspberries, this is a nice wine that unfortunately suffered by following the Bessards, seemed simple in comparison though the fruit is ripe, rich, pure

Last night, with spicy salmon and prawn soup with noodles, a bottle of 2012 Wild Goose Gew├╝rztraminer Okanagan, which is the BC white of this season for me, off-dry, litchi, pear, honey, good acidity, a bargain
