Weekend Drinking Thread [22nd-25th February 2019]

weekend

Gosh, I’ve never created the Weekend Drinking Thread before. Amazed that I’m the first! Anyway, here goes…

Last day away, and the butcher is selling ENORMOUS entrecötes. What are you going to do? Gratin dauphinois, mushrooms, tomatoes, courgettes, and a nice burgundy, that’s what.


The wine was inherited from my Dad - Louis Latour Aloxe-Corton Les Chaillots 2008 - and has been sitting in the cellar for nearly 5 years. A little bit barnyardy (bret? But only a little), a little bit Pinot-cabbagey, a bit oaky on the nose. Very smooth, medium bodied, red fruit (strawberries, redcurrants), not that tannic, and just the compete package.
