This weekend’s events

Saturday, March 24 we were invited by generous friends for dinner considering the bottles they opened, especially as we were five.
Puligny Montrachet Les Combettes 1er Cru from Domaine Prieur, delicious, ripe, opulent
Saint Emilion, Chateau Ausone 1986 (RP 74) smooth and almost Burgundian, I liked it! Given that 1986 is a great vintage on the left bank
Pomerol Chateau La Conseillante 1985 (RP 94), richer, fuller, really good, great vintage on the right bank
Margaux, Chateau Margaux 1989 (RP 90), great vintage but disappointing bottle
Chartreuse de Tarragona (vintage between 1973 and 1978), pale yellow, aromas of oriental spices, curry, long finish and soft.

Two photos taken this weekend: Jean Francois Galhaud busy polishing the brass plaque from Martine’s property, creating a bit of a stir in the street with this rather unusual behavior... polishing this plaque in broad daylight, at his age?

The second, I hope to be invited to the inauguration of this cellar under construction. I'll let you guess the name. Here everything is made to blend into the vineyard, another way to communicate...
