I've had the Louis Latour Pouilly Fuisse. I think you'll like it. Nothing life-changing, but very pleasant and drinkable. Went well with food.

I like the Loir white representation, Mark (and the Burg). Though I have been relentlessly drinking whites from Italy, the Loir still might be my favorite region for white.

Mark, nice haul!

Tonight was a Cep rose with roast duck and broccolini.

A little closer on each: Tonight's bottle is the 2007 Bereziat Brouilly. Lots of pepper on the nose. Very light, but not insubstantial. This is not the cheap Beaujolais you drink for Thanksgiving. I like this very much. Pretty hot on the back end and the finish is not particularly long. But this is a refreshing light drinker and is priced accordingly ($16).
I know Thivin well. Very good winemaker.

The Ladoucette Pouilly Fume was the most expensive wine of the bunch, but I went there with the idea of buying a couple of Loire whites, so...

No surprise. It was the only Kermit Lynch wine in the bunch. This particular store is the only one in town I've found with a good selection of KL wines.

Apparently, this will be my 30, 000th post. I feel I should be announcing a very impressive wine, but we have a Mosquito Hill Chard, from Kiwi, chilling for dinner.

I might well have another 07 Purple Pachyderm PN to celebrate (mourn) my post count tonight.

Good call spending that 30k post here instead of wasting it preaching the gospel to the heathens over in CE. Much more productive use. Congrats.

I feel I should retire this screen name now, or promise Fok another Ronald McDonald House donation and get my post count reset.



30, 001!

I will celebrate Pio's accomplishment with Sake and sushi.

speaking of, some leftover photos from wine I enjoyed during the week.




And for tonight:

Nice, Gome.

I mis-spoke when I said that Chard was modest. It was a WTSO purchase, and a damn nice chard. Barrel aged with weekly battonage. Put into new French oak for 18 months. Oak was not overbearing, citrus and cream. Very nice.

Also, memory was not serving me (well, with 500 bottles, I think I can be excused). It is an Oz wine, not a Kiwi.

07 Paul Pernot Bourgogne blanc. Meh.

An excellent 100% Cabernet from Randy Dunn. Amazing velvet in the mouth, but this wine is not quite as good as it thinks it is. Great fruit, though. $75

Nice looking prosciutto Audio. What kind of cheese?
