Why Big Red Diary?

fougeray de beauclair 2000 fixin clos marion

It’s a while since I opened one of these. Eight bottles from the case were drunk during that summer – but here is a reprise – the cork was a nightmare to remove, the corscrew just boring a hole through the centre (tsk!) so I filtered it through a tissue into the decanter.

Overall it seems like the same wine with maybe a hint more structure(?) and no mushrooms – anyway, it was clearly ‘fit for purpose’ 😉

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