Yesterday we were at Lord’s having a whale of a time watching England thrash the West Indies by ten wickets. Ha! We drank some good wine. We started off with a bottle of
Gosset Grande Reserve
which was totally lovely: weighty, dense and stylish. It had deposited more tartarate crystals than any bottle of fizz I had ever seen. I don’t mind this in the slightest, shows the wine hasn’t been mucked around with.
After lunch we popped a bottle of
Morey Saint Denis 2004
. My long-time reader may recall this was one of my candidates for the [link2post id=”362″]best village level Burgundy in my poll[/link2post]. I didn’t vote for it at the time, but after trying the 04 I feel I should have done; it was bloody marvellous. Great fruit, silky tannins, perfectly balanced acidity. A really serious village-level wine that delivered an incredible amount of pleasure. We both kept saying how much we were enjoying it. Peter, you were absolutely right, Dujac Morey provides so much happiness. It has done in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Well done the boys and girls at Dujac!
