(sigh…) Oh do I have to ?
Kicking off this week’s reportage
The St Emilion left over from the weekend was an uninvited guest to today’s home-made pizza and home grown salad and foraged Pyrenean walnuts… was not an ideal wine to have and sorry to say the remaining 1/4 bott found its epiphany in my compost bin. Adieu mon brave.
Bring on Proper Pizza Wine, yay !
Enter stage left and a jubbly BJ - (has anyone said that BJ was ideal pizza wine ?) from a TWS mixed case. What can I say … cherry cola candy, a bit of tannic structure, lovely rose perfume… who can object. The only challenge was to not finish the lot in one go. (1/3 left for “later”…)
This was one of TWS BJ village cru EP from last year; seems not to be available now.
