some wines enjoyed in France.
5 Euro grocery Bordeaux consumed on night 1:
much better, great pick up for 21 Euro:
really wonderful. More structure than the AOC Chablis, but also more balance and nuanced:
meh bottle, but how did I not notice that the camera was so crooked:
consumed with sushi:
this was much better than the previous riesling, and well structured, but it was slightly oxidized which was offputting:
back on track with this awesome rose. WAY better than any AOC Provence that I've had. Also in a 1L format so
consumed at a little place with a few Parisian locals that we knew. Really tasty and enjoyable (sorry for the dark pic):
25 Euro at a restaurant. Yes I say!
Then, I visited Burgundy. Plenty of pics of this will come shortly.
Until then, I'll cut to the very end, dinner at Michel Bras.
Dagueneau Silex 2004:
J-L Chave Hermitage 1997:
both of those wines were absolutely incredible, and drinking wonderfuly right now. More from that dinner will be in the food thread, I just haven't uploaded any pics from it yet.
