Going to have a crack at a bottle of the Rostaing Les Lezardes VdP 2014 with the US F1GP qualifying, whilst attempting to being attentive to my GF. I like this wine, really good, classy Syrah - silky without being heavy or over-concentrated.
Must admit that I am pleased that the Exhibition Hermitage 2010 has been released to the membership, I for one squirreled away a minor dod into reserves. I would imagine that it may next be the 2015 to be Exhibition(ed!), but I do wonder if a 2009 Exhibition Hermitage was commissioned, time will tell? We have of late had the 2005, 07, 10 released ; so we really have no cause for complaint.
So far reports indicate that Northern Rhone may be a step behind 2015, but still well worth buying. Hopefully Marcel will have some terrific goodies up his shirtsleeve after his tasting/ buying trips up and down the Rhône Valley, and after the brilliant 2015 offer; his bar is set very, very high!?! LoL
The Lezardes 2014 was as good as ever.
Tonight, a bottle of the Society’s Pauillac Ulysse 2012, which always benefits from a couple of hours in the decanter. Roast beef, Yorkies etc with the US F1GP with a side order of the new series of Robot Wars. The makings of perfect Sunday!!
