Recreative booze

Post by Witness »

Contrary to what Wcat said, I noticed that a 1999 Beaune 1er cru "Clos du Roi" has a quite distinctive taste…

As thought the lady drinking with me:

Being on a spending spree, I also looked ~ 20 miles south:

It's not Burgundy, as some would make believe, but has also very nice raspberry scent.

Comments in 5 – 10 years, if I'm still around… :?

Thanks for the tip, if I see a bottle I'll have a try. But alas I don't really "understand" the bordeaux – even if I appreciate a Pomerol or a Saint-Estèphe. As I have friends who love them, I have a still half-full case of Château Chasse-Spleen (must be 2001, if I remember well) which I had the chance to buy dirt-cheap years ago. Optimal now, and even for some time to come.

Chasse-Spleen and La Lagune are symmetrical, north and south, of Margaux. Can't be bad… :wink:

But my Real LoveTM goes to Burgundy and especially the Beaune region. (To extend it to Bordeaux I'd need some spare livers…)
I've been to Dijon some weeks ago and brought back oddball bottles; certainly not the "greatest", but from the borders, where one "climat", as they say, blends into another. Should be an interesting experience, and I'll cook something with morels (makes certain ladies week in the knees…).

Happy drinking, all!
