wine of the year – with a bullet – so far…



No, not the one on the right – very good as it was – the one on the left. It was a Paulée wine. Only two bottles remained in the cellar; this one with a little air-space and a second one which had a perfect fill – presumably from re-corking. You know when everybody puts their nose in their glass and almost en ensemble exhorts – ouf! – that was this wine. We never felt the need to open the second bottle, there was, however, also the 2005 previously opened, and there was a clear family resemblance…

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