- N.V. Breganze Prosecco Extra Dry - Italy, Veneto (9/17/2006)
Didn't pay it too much attention, but it disappeared quickly, so must have gone down well. Not too serious but nicely balanced. Great value at ~ £8-9
- 1982 Château Boyd-Cantenac - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux (9/17/2006)
Decanted immediately prior to drinking.
A fantastic (almost decayed) heady truffle smell on opening. Over time this subsided a little and more tobacco-like notes appeared. Fruit still there, but very much in the supporting role. Acidity spot on. A fine bottle.
- N.V. Chambers Muscadelle (Tokay) Rosewood Vineyards - Australia, Victoria, North East, Rutherglen (9/17/2006)
Seriously good value and a treat with after dinner coffee.
Served with Roast Guinea Fowl, Crispy roast spuds, carrots, spiced beetroot and a creamy mushroom sauce from fresh & dried mushrooms and a fine porcini mushroom paste with a touch of single cream.
