Wines we drank

We drank during the same meal :
With desert, a very good Chiroulet Vent d’ Hiver 2007, sweet wine light and pure, made with Petit Manseng – produced by the Fezas family,
Meursault Vieilles Vignes 2006 from Buisson Charles, drank not too cold (17°C/63°F ?) delicious and sold for a good price – served with Caviar
Château La Conseillante 2006, the work done for this cru gives this wine its depth without taking away the finesse of this great Pomerol. We enjoyed every drop of it served with a Lapin aux échalottes (rabbit with shallots).
Le Pin 2002 served with cheese. Seemed a bit closed.
Abadia Retuerta 1996 was not drinkable as aperitif: acid and green… How can this be possible?

The next day, for my mother-in-law’s birthday
Puligny Montrachet 1er cru Clos de la Mouchère 99 from Jean Boillot, enjoyed by all of us and served with langoustines cook in a new way by Murielle. As my father-in-law said: “I almost ate the shell”.
Les Dentelles 2002 from Calvet-Thunevin 2002. A bit too much sun, port like, probably served not cold enough… And I always tell my friends “drink these wines from the south cold!”
Morlanda 2006, white Priorat: 85% Grenache Blanc, 15 % Macabeu – correct
We finished with the latest project from my collaboration with Clément Fayat : Domaine Fayat-Thunevin 2006 Pomerol, very good, easy to drink – served with roast beef.
