Interestingly that which we see is directly effected by how we see.If we are only seeing that which is in front of us or if our vision extends beyond.

1968 Chateau Latour, a swine from one of the finest estates in the world in one of the worst vintages of the 20th century, The wine was rated barely mediocre in its youth and i thought it was probably undrinkable now. Well, it was drinkable, showing the typical Bordeaux cigar-box nose and a little fruit. Latour is known as making the best swine of the top chateaus in poor vintages, and this one proved the point.

Famille Perrin 2016 Côtes du Rhône Blanc Réserve ($11.99)

Transparent straw color with a brassy hue. The floral and honeyed scent of Viognier dominates the aroma, as it typically does even when it’s a relatively small percentage of the blend (with Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Roussanne). Delicious citrus flavors, tangerine and a hint of lemon-lime, are primary in the crisp, mouth-watering flavor, lingering with an edge of intriguing “stony” minerality in a very long finish. 13% alcohol. The winery suggests serving it with Mediterranean dishes and fish, delicate or spicy dishes (perhaps scented with saffron), grilled fish, or bouillabaisse. We found it a great match with farfalle pasta topped with a sauce reminiscent of French onion soup, deeply browned onions and garlic stirred into a Gruyère-based Mornay sauce.

Hi Harry,

I started out with the Midbar Semillion/Sauvignon Blanc 2010, moving later to the Prix Hagafen Melange 2007. The Semillion based white (70%) is still drinking well, with a fruit profile of summer melons, yet with a viscosity that buttresses it, helping it stand up to food. The Melange is a brooding wine, that showcases masculine tannins along with an array of secondary flavors from the the forest floor. The Californian fruit lurks somewhere in the background.

Best Regards,

Hi Yoel,

This must've been quite an experience.
