Why Big Red Diary?

same old stuff…

The weather remains hot – it’s now about 4 weeks of that – after a cold/cool start it’s become a mini 2003 (so far).

Bottles at home are (hardly surprising) of the freshest variety – that’s mainly bourgogne blancs about which I’ve written quite enough already. Just for a change this week I opened up a 2006 JC Boisset, Morey St.Denis Monts Luisants Blanc – it’s lost much of that rich, coconut inflected flavour but retains density and good underlying acidity. Drunk over two nights it’s less moreish than in its first flush of youth, but very tasty all the same – I’d still rebuy this….

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