I went out to pick up a Bugey to bring to a party (Bugey, is, incidentally responsible for the one and only time I ever got drunk -- I remember it being very yummy). There's only one place within a hundred miles of me that has it and they sold out yesterday morning! Someone else must like it.
Anyway, some recent things (and I reiterate that I wish we put prices on the bottles when realistic -- no need to price the '83 DRC, but it would be helpful otherwise).
This Chard we had last night -- the best sub-20 Chard I have ever had. Will now be a stocked item.
2000 Vendage-Tardives. Surprised that this did not do any more for me. It was rich up front, but lost a little midpalate, and did not have much of a finish. Got it on sale a few years ago for about $40. Was it too old? I've stored it well.
The always spectacular Merry Edwards Sauvignon. About $38.
It's nice to be drinking wine again -- I've been drinking a lot of cocktails of late, as they are cheaper for quality, but I am really enjoying wine.
