Weekend drinking thread 10-12th Dec 2021

Maybe this will need merging, hopefully not though.

After portioning out a bargain guinea fowl ( £5 ! ) and making stock from the carcass and trimmings earlier, this here tonight…

…with a Marsannay ‘les Longeroies’ 2013 from Sylvain Pataille and the final bottle of six. As I’ve posted about it before I’ll try my best to be brief !

Red cherry and berry fruit with a touch of sous bois on the nose. Similar flavours with plenty of refreshing acidity to structure and now resolved tannins on tasting. Medium body, sour and tangy fruit with good depth of flavour and a persistent finish. An honest, and to my mind, rustic style that lacks the oak polish of more expensive examples but nevertheless was absolutely spot on with the lentils and fowl in the meal.

Looking forward to reading and seeing what you’re all up to this weekend. Have a good one everyone !
