Tonight in Paris at Le Petit Sommelier- 2013 Guiberteau Breze and 1996 Domaine de l’Arlot Clos des Forets 1er Cru Nuits St. Georges.  Both were absolutely delicious. 

Were you able to avoid the protests?

They had a lot of the right bank sealed off to both pedestrian and car traffic. Lots of the Metro was also shut down.  it is a mess.

Fun, Japanese-centric dinner Friday night:

NV Billecart-Salmon rose
1967 Ridge Monte Bello
1977 Grgich Hills Johannesberg Riesling
1993 Ausbruch Furmint
2002 Chave Hermitage mag
2004 Allemand Reynard
2005 Rostaing La Landonne
2007 Chave Hermitage
2008 Dauvissat Vaillons
2010 Ramonet Les Caillerets
2011 Heaven's Door

2003 Domaine Beaurenard CdP Boisrenard

A great wine in a difficult vintage.  Tanzer's TN describes it well: "Highly expressive, very ripe aromas of dark cherry, plum liqueur, black cardamom, bitter chocolate, espresso and exotic oak spices. An enormous, outsized wine, with broad, sweet dark fruit and mocha flavors accented by pepper and oak spice."

Simply delicious with a beef tenderloin.  I wish I had more of this wine.
