Friendly meal

Friendly meal for 10 people here in Bordeaux and the list of wines we drank

Champagne still in the barrels 2007
Champagne Krug grande cuvée NM

Puligny-montrachet 1er cru Clavoillon Domaine Leflaive 2005
Meursault-Caillerets Coche Dury 2005
Meursault Arnaud Ente 2005

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Domaine Eugénie 2007
Latricières Chambertin Domaine Trapet 2004
Pommard Epeneaux Comte Armand 2004

Morey Saint Denis premier cru Domaine Bizot 2000
Auxey Duresses premier cru Comte Armand 2000
Pommard Les Vignots Domaine Leroy 1997

Monbazillac Chateau Vari 2003
Réserve du Chateau

All these wines were good, even very good, a special note about the champagne still in barrels, made from organic grapes, and brut O, able of competing with some of these great Burgundies. Not just a fun wine, to celebrate, with bubbles (besides, he had very few bubbles), a fine wine, I cannot wait to drink it again after its release.

The 2007 Clos Vougeot, way too young, made me appreciate Clos Vougeot again and especially the 1997 Pommard Les Vignots from Domaine Leroy which was, in my opinion for a very longtime, at the level of the best Burgundies.
I thought that in Bordeaux, you only drink Medoc or Grave. However, this meal proves that some people know Burgundy. When will there be such curiosity for Right Bank wines?
After all, we are the “Burgundy” of Bordeaux, aren’t we?
