Cristal Roederer 1993, Champagne
A great Champagne, savoured at its zenith. It was excellent with duck foie gras.
Montrachet, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 1987, Bourgogne
Tasting it ‘blind’ at the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti was one of the best ‘wine moments’ of my life.
Gewurztraminer Mambourg Sélection de Grains Nobles, Domaine Weinbach 2005, Alsace
Of uncommon finesse and complexity. When the bottle was finished, we all bemoaned “3Already ?!”.
Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2002, Bordeaux
2002, a vintage which passed unnoticed in the Bordeaux region. But not this bottle !
Château Talbot 1959, Bordeaux
Few wines can boast that they age well. Talbot can.
Faustino Gran Reserva 1964, Rioja
As with people, wrinkles favour some wines more than others. This Rioja willingly accepts its age.
Volnay Les Mitans Premier Cru, Domaine de Montille 1991, Bourgogne
A wine in the image of its illustrious producer, Hubert de Montille : sparkling and lively, which true Burgundy enthusiasts will understand.
Romanée StVivant, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2004, Bourgogne
The day we tasted this wine, the others (themselves very worthy) received scant attention !
