To celebrate Jeff’s birthday, we had 11 guest for dinner plus 2 friends to taste wine. However, before dinner we tasted around fifteen wines I am involved in from 2005 and 2006, including a great La Dominique 2006.
Champagne (magnum) Piper Heidsieck brut
Foie gras de canard maison, jambon pata negra
Eglise Clinet 2005
Côte Rôtie Chapoutier non vintage (probably a blend from 1969/1970/1971)
Seavey 1991 Napa Valley
Sine Qua Non 2002 Napa Valley
Rack of lamb with flageolets
Certan de May 1975, Latour 1959, Mouton Rothschild 1953
Chocolate cake from Mr Lopez
Calvet Thunevin Maury
Vouvray 1990 Goutte d’Or from Foreau
Only great, only top! The American wines were a pleasant gift from Jeff. The Certan de May was opened for Denis Durantou and we drank Latour with a thought for Hervé Bizeul… Mouton Rothschild 1952 for the 2 Jeffs and the Vouvray and Maury for Noëlle!
