The nigiri looks less appetizing than the geso.

I went to a wine tasting dinner last night. One wine in particular that really stood out to me was a 1993 Lopez de Heredia which went exceptionally well with a dish of roasted red mullet and pork belly, a combination that I was surprised to see work so well. The wine was yeasty, and sort of smelt like a stinky cheese, which was strong enough to stand up to the rouget, which they flew in from France (the best I've eaten). I did decide to snap a quick picture of this plate for the forum.


(methinks the scale of the pork to the mullet was problematic, though it did work, flavor wise)

Langoustine and sea urchin were paired with an '07 Meursault and an '09 Grüner Veltliner, the former appealing to the leanness of this particular dish, the latter worked very well with the richness of the urchin and avocado. Warm salad of quail with a vin jaune sauce worked surprisingly well with a 2010 Beaujolais (en Magnum), and a very interesting red from the Jura complimented the sauce nicely. Veal was paired with a delicious '01 Domaine de L'Arlot Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Burgundy, and something else I cannot recall. Some cheese with some other stuff, and then the dessert wines were notable, in particular the '07 Marco de Bartoli, Passito di Pantelleria "Bukkuram", which I enjoyed as it was not overly sweet or cloying, but rather a bit salty to balance with the mango and passion fruit dessert.

which vineyard of L'Arlot?


also, which producer for the Meursault?
post #20825 of 25374
Clos de Forets, and the Mersault producer was Pierre-Yves-Colin-Morey. Wonderful minerality.

Oh, and the other wine with the veal was a 2000 Domaine de la Grange de Peres, Vin de Pays de l'Herault, Lenguedoc.

Forets is a monopole, which is neat.

QUE? Mole es Delicioso!
post #20834 of 25374
Yeah, WTF--might not be the most photogenic food around, but mole is awesome.
post #20835 of 25374
Mole can be great, but the great majority of the time it is really disappointing. That looks vile, though, especially the broken, clumpy consistency of the sauce. And the other thing. JFC.
