Another grasp at loveliness

We have popped another half bottle of [link2post id=”1614″]Morey Premier Cru les Loups from Domaine des Lambrays[/link2post]; it is really terribly good. It has great elegance and refinement despite still being a bit closed. It is really silky and concentrated. This is lovely Burgundy. We’ve only got one more half left, alas.

I should say we opened this because the 1704″]Santa Duc Gigondas Prestige des Hautes Garrigues 2003 we tried to drink with our steak proved to be too much like hard work. It was so frighteningly ripe and alcoholic that we could only manage a glass each before putting a cork back in it and deciding to re-visit it tomorrow. I don’t really see the point in such monsters, they are rarely balanced or indeed nice.
