We were in need of cheering up over the last couple of days, having discovered a leak from the roof… Scaffolding now up, the husband climbed up to inspect prior to Mr roof’s visit… ‘it’s not looking too bad’, he said. We can only hope the subsequent bill supports his observation
To aid our prayers and hopes, we opened a bottle of 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc, from domaine Rousset:
A delicious Marsanne, with a nose all brimming with peach, pineapple, golden delicious apple, beeswax, honey and white blossom. On the palate this is just as good - rounded, a little creamy, even waxy, with notes of peach, ripe yellow apple, honey and chamomile; on the finish there is a lively bitter citrus pith, which gives it added interest. So pleased to have opened it… roof? what roof?!
We’ll be drinking this with pork in Calvados, apple and cream sauce. What are you drinking this week?
