Thanks guys.

Burgundy confuses and scares the shit out of me! And, that's before drinking it.

Went with this. $47. 2007 was supposed to be an iffy year in Burg. We'll see. Slim pickings at my local and very large LCBO. frown.gif



BTW, has anyone seen The Four Seasons of Romanée-Conti? Just watched it on HiFi TV here in Toronto. Really interesting show. Such beauty and such wine! My favourite part is the opening of a '96 and an '86 from a prominent wine collector for a Japanese industrialist (dressed impeccably) smile.gif

2007 was not an iffy year in Burgundy

I am having a little birthday dinner tomorrow for myself, with friends. Going to make a little shot of pea soup to start, the langoustine spaghetti turbans, the lobster in orange beurre blanc with carrots and vadouvan granola, and then a rack of lamb from the Robuchon book, like Matt posted recently. Then I guess somebody is gonna get a cake.

I brought the wines from Japan where they are much cheaper than here (I am in Seoul right now)

champs to get us through most of the food:
Bruno Paillard Assemblage 1999
Egly-Ouriet Vignes de Vrigny
Deutz NV

Some big reds when we start on the lamb and then keep it going:
Claude Dugat La Gabryotte Gevrey-Chambertin 2009
Uccelliera Brunello 2006

Going to open up those reds several hours before and just air them out in decanters. Hope they are ok.

well, kind of.... I normally have a couple end of year parties but this year I'm back and forth between countries and wanted to do something with my people.; if I cook anything I want to (sans truffles) and serve wine at home I can feed 8 for the price of what a nice meal for 2 costs normally going out...

I love this.
post #14844 of 17751
I do too, I've drank a case worth of that bottle by now - my local supermarket has all three Egly NV's plus the millesime, and never really move any of them. Always on sale with a touch of discount, and it's really too good to pass up at the price. Bruno Paillard NV is a little more and also awesome.

I should be there by 8:00.


Finished Xmas shopping, just spending a hopefully quiet weekend cooking and drinking at home. Picked up the bordeaux on the left on my winemonger's rec. Not sure where or when I got the burgandy in the middle, noticed it when I was pulling out something else, is it any good? Will end either tonight or tomorrow night with the Tattinger.

No idea on the Burg, never seen that producer.
post #14847 of 17751
This was very nice. 2010.

good wine, superb producer.
post #14849 of 17751
Yeah. It's entry level, but I still enjoyed it.

The Burgundy I took a chance on was wonderful. Thanks for your suggestions. I'll be sure to give them a try if they're available.

Research suggested that the 07 vintage was difficult, but because of the expertise of the vintners and a dry August, the vintage was saved. The wine had the 'softness' that some writers discussed. Lovely fruit, great, complex, earthy nose, and a lovely finish. Everyone enjoyed it.

I'll look forward to learning more about Burgundy.
