tyding up, 1, 2, 3…


Clearly a rubbish title for this hotch-potch mess of a post, but I was too lazy to come up with something better while I ‘dowloaded’ a few bits and pieces…

First – something about wine, dark coloured and a little oxidised wine at that. I’ve been pulling older whites out of the cellar and last night was one of Roulot’s 1999 Bourgognes. A peach of a wine and relative bargain for quite some years after release. This one was quite dark coloured, with a nose partly between baked pear and oxidised aromas. More obvious oxidation on the palate, but ‘just’ drinkable I thought – halfway down the glass I changed my mind and ditched it. The reserve bottle was a 2001 Château de Puligny-Montrachet, Puligny Folatières. A worringly similar colour but no oxidation was perceptible. Slightly monolithic on opening – I’ll provide a full note tomorrow.

Second – a couple of articles worth sharing that I read in the last week:

Third (and last) – I note today that some people are very excited that Facebook has just passed Google as the most visited site in the US. I have to say that I’m bemused as to why they should be so excited; assuming you have a thriving bunch of ‘friends’, why would you need to ‘look for something’ more often than interact with them?
That’s enough from me…

    It’s the amount the owner gets for advertisements. Which also means, when the big conglomerate comes to buy your site, how much vineyard you can retire on-as ‘the back 40.’ Seems simple. Jessie says less stressful than working for Disney Corp. and hoping the next pirates movie is gross, oops a big grosser. Faye asked how do you buy 40 acres in Burgundy? I told her she’d have a conversion experience.
