Great line up again!

Great lineup again!

As a Sommelier, with over 30 years of experience, I can say that food and wine pairing is somewhat of a specialty of mine, as I love it and I'm quite good at it.

You see, even if I don't know the menu or all the ingredients of the dishes to be served, I developed some kind of a method based on my instinct, knowledge, skills, and know-how ("savoir-faire"), and gut's feelings, to pair the most ideal wine (I can buy or at my availability) with each dish, and I rarely miss.

And, last night, once again, was a great example of it, like the wines, I selected to go with the menu of our guests, matched perfectly with the food and showed wonderfully too. It was a blast. Great wines, love them all.

Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Folatieres" 2017

Light, crisp, racy, mineral, zesty, floral, elegant, refined, balanced, and sharp on the nose and the palate, yet, packing a solid build, good strength, complexity, as well as structure and texture, like a ballerina seems delicate and fragile, while being very strong, agile, flexible, coordinated and extremely precise. Love this wine. Really enjoyable and well crafted, a great match with the scallops and artichoke Risotto.

Domaine Serafin Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2017

Here again, on the light to medium side, yet layered, complex, and long-lasting, boasting fresh, bright, fragrant, focused, energetic, and racy aromas of red and black cherry and berries, mingling with floral, herbal, and earthy minerals, terroir-driven notes. A brilliant wine, great with the langoustine and the turbot.

Vieux Château Certan Pomerol 2016

My love for VCC is undeniable and goes back to 25 years ago when I first had the chance and was privileged to visit the cellar and taste at the barrel with Alexandre Thienpont himself. I fell in love with the wine, and till today, it is my favorite Pomerol. There is shyness, yet character and personality, distinct elegance and intelligence in this wine. Like its maker, this is a bright and generous wine that has so much to give and to offer when you get to know it and listen to what it had to say. Stunning with the slow-cooked lamb and roasted pigeon.

Cheers! Santé!
