Bizarre, bizarre

I recently read a book given by a friend (during the weekend of the storm, on February 27 and 28) and written by Roald Dahl titled « Bizarre ! bizarre ! » (English title: “Someone like you”)

I made a bet for a blind tasting of Branaire Ducru 1934, which was a good pretext to offer this book to all the wine (and Branaire Ducru) and blind tastings enthusiasts. But it is not the only reason, “Someone like you” also contains a lot of absurd, tragic endings, watch out for caviar if you like art, try not to mistake a servant with a mustache with a gentleman, even one wearing glasses with an American…

We hosted many people, Koreans, Americans, and meals at home or in the restaurant Marronniers in Montagne with nice bottles: La Grande Barde 2005, Château Saint Georges 2003, Beau Soleil 2006 (sold at a nice price) and a classified growth 1995 which, fortunately today, is very good.
At our house: Whites, some 2009, Compassant 2004, Clos du Beau Père 2006 and Sabines 2006 and of course Lafite Rothschild and Valandraud 1998, very different. When you think that people consider that Valandraud is a concentrated wine ! Taste this Lafite Rothschild 1998 which is still too young to drink today !
