No notes taken at the time, but easy to recollect:
2007 Comtes Lafon, Monthelie 1er Les Duresses
Directly a lovely wine – open like all 2007s, but with a little more zip to the energy and more complexity than most. Very stable wine too – it was opened on Friday but only finished on Sunday – when it was equally good, having spent time in the fridge. Very easy to recommend…
Rebuy – Yes
1990 Michel Juillot, Corton-Perrières
The cork slid very easily out. No oxidation but the nose has a certain amount of brett – below my pain threshold, but not by a lot – fortunately it’s hardly visible in the flavours – so one maybe two glasses might be tolerated. BUT! We had steinpilz risotto – and wow – the nose wasn’t much better, but the previously modest palate became absolutely delicious. Note to self – if in doubt about a middle-aged red, drink it with mushroom risotto!
Rebuy – No
