               Why Big Red Diary?

saturday night ‘quick-notes’

Saturday night was enjoyed with neighbours – I mainly poured ‘house favourites’ and whites too as dinner was a little spicy. First was a rosé bubbly from Alsace – a little too sweet and confected. Next was a the first bottle from a 6-pack of 2005 Puligny 1er Les Champs-Gain from Mischief and Mayhem; significantly rounder and softer than I remembered, full of brioche but I have to say a perfectly integrated, if rich whole – was impressive despite me remembering a more mineral wine(?) We followed this with M&M’s 2005 Puligny 1er Caillerets – more mineral, fantasticly intense on the mid-palate and into the finish – still singing. Last one was the 2005 Chablis Bougros from Bouchard Père et Fils – despite remaining a house favourite, this was pretty much beaten up by the previous wines…

I couldn’t drink any more – not due to too many bottles, rather I’d eaten too much. I slept very well 😉
