côte d’or today…


My car is very dirty – apparently it’s sand from the Sahara.
Actually, I never wash my car, so today nobody is commenting 😉

Warm during the day, warm during the evening too. Depending upon who you ask, the vines are anywhere between 2 and 4 weeks in advance of the average. Some growers seem relaxed about the situation, other much less so, but let’s see…

Lunch included two 76s and a 71 from Thomas-Bassot. My previous experience of these wines was bullet-proof, but today, two were oxidised beyond redemption, despite modest ullage. The last bottle was worth the price of entry though – especially when drunk with somebody who worked with T-B until 1951!

Tonight a nice jambon persillé and some 2012 Chablis in Les Dilletantes, followed by organic eggs and a peanut tart in Maison du Colombiere, washed down with espresso, oh and 2011 Thibault Liger-Belair Bourgogne Pinot Noir!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
