pretty sure it was an 87 Dunn.

What a day!

2015 Josep Foraster Blanc Seleccio - very nice futronic reccomendation paired with some charcuterie before dinner.

2015 COS frappato

2017 Envinate Albahra - both of these fit the bill for pochetta pairing - high acid to cut the fat and enough herbal/savoury notes to match it.

   Wow!

And only one (very mildly) corked wine!

A lot of surprises though, the colour of the N. Rhone whites, the freshness of the 60 year old champagne, the awesomeness of the CVNE (not a surprise but...still amazing wine).

2014 Kutch McDougal Ranch Pinot Noir

2016 Laetitia Les Galets Pinot Noir
