Yesterday, I participated to a tasting of 2004 right and left bank organized by the Grand Jury Européen at Château Léoville Poyferré. They provided our large group of Grand Jury members with a nice and professional tasting room.
I was surprised by the overall quality of this afternoon’s tasting and particularly with the quality of the so called modern wines in this complex vintage. I loved Magrez Fombauge and Grand Mayne, as well as Marojallia.
During lunch at the Café Lavinal, created by Jean-Michel Cazes in Pauillac, located in the village of Bages, a friend of Jean Guyon ordered, for desert a few bottles of Lynch Bages. The meal was covered by the Medoc club Biturica, which includes dynamic and affordable chateaux.
Today, release of Pingus and Flor de Pingus 2006.
