A lovely long weekend on the Graubunden slopes. Decent piste conditions, despite them only having about 25% of the normal amount of snow this year – and they have more snow here than many other Swiss ski areas!
Took a couple of magnums for the team to work their way through too. The first was Alex Gambal’s 2002 St.Aubin 1er Dents du Chien. Toasted bread and an altogether perfect midlle-years palate that had plenty of complexity and savouriness, this was singing. Next was Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey’s 2008 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Les Caillerets. Also a little toasted bread on the nose, a line of acidity and linear fruit before opening into the finish with a very, very long cream dimension. For it’s youth a stunner.
Ah to be in Switzerland…
There is one response to “white wine & white slopes…”
Glad to read about P-Y C-M’s Caillerets Bill, thx for that.
I’ve a case of that slumbering, also with a 2006 in storage – not planning to tackle either short term.
Pity I haven’t got Alex’s Dents du Chien but am happy with Larue’s !
Snow and mountains look stunning – enjoy !
