Bottles we drank

Pommard Clos Blanc 1er cru from Albert Grivault 2006: nice nose, ok wine, too light for me, Burgundy’s curse?

Lezongars 2000, corked

Clos des Moiselles 2008 Côtes de Bourg, blend of merlot, malbec and cabernet sauvignon. Nice bottle, good wine. Same with its second wine Bord Eaux 2009, 100% merlot, plenty of fruit.

Saint Saturnin 2008 Medoc: this is an amazing wine, made by an old friend of mine, Pied Noir like me, who has been making good wine, (quite different from the others) for a very long time. But this man wouldn’t like to do like others: Jancis Robinson wrote a big article on the owner published on November 13, 2010. Is it a future cult wine?
