Over a few days with friends in Florida,

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut NV (At a marina restaurant in St. Pete's.  Menu listed it as Perrier Joust, lol)

2008 Saffredi - drinking well

Haton Extra Brut Rose Champagne NV - good with oysters, seafood

2014 Domaine Moutard Chablis Valmur - good with more oysters & shellfish salad, bayside at Oyster Catchers, Tampa Hyatt

1998 Urbina Riserva Especial - better than previous bottle back in T.O.  With decant and some time, opened up nicely.  Great with tapas at Ceviche, St. Pete's

2005 Fonroque, St. Emilion.  No surprise that it was a step up from the Urbina.  In a good spot, with long way to go.

At various venues around Lake Mary:

2017 Merry Edwards Russian River Pinot Noir

NV Veuve

2011 Henri Boillot Corton Charlemagne - singing

2006 Soldera Riserva, amazing, ethereal. Purity and freshness, balance.  Wow.

2015 Ballot Millot Meursault Genevrieres 1er, beautiful

2010 Poggio Scalette Piantonaia, young but drinking well

1978 Aldo Conterno Barolo Bricco Bussia Vigna Colonnello, surprisingly youthful. Opened up beautifully.  Wow.

2008 Luigi Oddero Barolo Vigna Rionda, Sooooo young following the 78 Colonnello, but beautiful purity of fruit, terroir.  Great wine with a LONG way to go.






With turkey dinner on Christmas Day:

  • 2012 Larmandier-Bernier Terre De Vertus Blanc de Blancs Non Dose
  • 2014 Remelluri Bianco
  • 2002 Huet Vouvray Sec Le Haut-Lieu

 And with turkey leftovers next day:

  • 2013 Murrieta Capellania Reserva Blanco

 I've never been much of a turkey fan, but I lose that argument every year and I'm the first one to recognise my limitations anywhere near a kitchen.  I just do the wine service at Christmas-time.
