guyon 2010 chambolle plus a few hills

It’s true, I took a short red break from my 4 Vaillons – the next two are (of-course) still on their way!

To develop a thirst for the Chablis I set myself a task on Saturday – to run from Lauterbrunnen up to Mürren, have lunch then do 4-5 hours of walking. The run didn’t go quite to plan; a couple of times I needed a 2 minute walk ‘recovery’, and by the time I got to Winteregg I was ‘done-in’ so took lunch there and changed into my boots. Actually I felt ashamed whilst walking from Winteregg to Mürren as it’s virtually flat – I could have run another 15 minutes – no problem, oh-well, maybe next time…

First, an ice-cream stop in Mürren – which is as gorgeously pretty in the summer as it is in the winter – before walking up the Palace Run to the Almendhübel and then onto Suppenalp for an ‘ice-coffee’. Back down into Mürren then the walk to Gimmelwald, Stechelberg and Lauterbrunnen – about 4 hours I suppose. I admit to napping on the train home! I’ll also admit to quite some muscle pain on Sunday too!

2010 Antonin Guyon, Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras
Spicy oak and a little vanilla which really needs over an hour to become background elements. In the mouth this is sweet, fresh and has a lovely cut and clarity – it drinks very easily. The nose is a bit commercial which is a shame as Chambolle shouldn’t need all that make-up – but make-up or not, a very pretty wine.
Rebuy – Yes

A sunny day in Mürren:
