Even more wines with food

by Florida Jim » Sun Jul 16, 2006 11:06 pm

With a salad of orange slices, avocado, arugala and citrus vinaigrette with green olives:
2004 Girardin, Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres:
Big, oaky, young and viscous; an interesting but ultimately, unsatisfying white burg.
Price unknown.

With crab chowder:
The above wine.

With squid salad and bruschetta with asparagus:
2004 Pepière, Muscadet:
Precise, clean, authentic and beautifully balanced. Twice the wine of the preceding bottle for $10. I’d buy it again at that price and more.

With fresh figs with honey, Manchego cheese and walnuts:
1990 Château Suduiraut, Sauternes (375 ml):
Bronze color; rich and apricot on the nose; sweet, dried fruit on the palate with good acidic lift and no caramel notes; long, sweet finish. About $35; I’d buy it again at that price.

Afterthought:
2001 Dom. Jean-Jacques Confuron, Nuits-Saint-Georges Les Fleurières:
Powerful scents of black and red fruits, some earth; clear flavors that follow the nose without artifice or oak, balanced, concentrated, crisp and quite long. Showing young, not especially NSG but very clean and honest. A delight to drink on its own – I can only imagine how good it would be with food. Price unknown.

Best, Jim
