Mark turns 50 . . .

N/V Krug, Champagne:
Nice but not up to the hype/price.

With paella:

1991 Jayer-Gilles, Echézeaux (magnum):
Outstanding nose with sauvage character and mushroom, red fruit scents; a little thin on the palate but pure and clean, well balanced and distinctive; medium finish.

1999 Chevillon, Nuits-Saint-Georges Chaignots:
Showing at full song with wonderful fruit and truffle aromas; deep, rich, clean fruit and earth flavors and remarkable length. I did not expect this to be so open and generous but it was everything one could ask of the terroir.

2004 Matinsancho, Rueda:
The best match with the dish and surely the best verdejo I have ever tasted. Exceptional.

2004 Dom. Saint Luc, Coteaux du Tricastin:
Light and easy to drink with good southern Rhone character and a clean delivery.

I had never tasted this before but I will again; one of the most extraordinary gustatory experiences of my life. But at 54% alcohol, a little goes a long way. Unforgettable.

Best, Jim

Indeed that the Chevillon was open surprises me as well. Perhaps I will check in on one of mine.

Nice notes as usual.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
