Yesterday, we were invited by friends, owners of a famous cru from Saint Emilion, just to spend quality time and have a good conversation.
We started with a Champagne Rose from Laurent Perrier, and with our meal, we tasted blind 3 white burgundies, including Clos des Mouches blanc 2007 from Joseph Drouhin, a great wine. I thought it was Drouhin’s monopoly, but there are actually other producers.
We also had a very old and great Meursault and an Auxey Duresses to start.
A red wine at the end with incredible richness, served at the right temperature, tasting very much from the South: Court de Mautens (vintage?), which I liked very much. Vive Rasteau, Vive Grenache.
Friends, a good meal, good wine and good company are worth more than any psychoanalysis!
