LeDomduVin: Party on Tuesday

Party on Tuesday

And, why not? In fact, we should basically party every day as if it was the last, to make the best of it, right? 😁👍🥂

Well, that's what some people did last night, and I was pleased to be part of it as their Sommelier, firstly because they were extremely nice, and secondly, because they brought a great lineup of champagnes and wines not to be missed. 

Champagne Fleury Symphonie d'Europe Extra Brut 1992 

(disgorged December 2016) 
Unfortunately, it was gone, down the hill, smelled off, and was totally unbalanced and unharmonious. Too bad as I would have loved to love it.

Bereche et Fils Reflet d'Antan Brut 

(BA14 disgorged February 2019)
Really nice, fresh, enticing nose of brioche and toast mingling with minerals and yellow fruits, quite complex and long. Love it.

Cedric Bouchard Roses de Jeanne Cotes de Val Vilaine Blanc de Noirs Pinot noir 

(V17, disgorged April 2019) 
A classic in my book, zesty, fresh, crisp, yet generous and complex, rich without being heavy, sharp and precise, and a perfect introduction to Cedric Bouchard Champagnes if you do not know them. Love it.

Domaine Leflaive Puligny Montrachet 1996 

For a Puligny Montrachet village of that age, this is an amazing and incredibly surprising wine. Rich, ample, complex, layered, incredibly balanced and harmonious, and nicely expanding from the mouthwatering attack to the highly satisfying lingering finish, with a strong potential to age even much longer. Man, what a wine!!! Love it!

Domaine Faiveley Mazis Chambertin 2010 

Great wine, but it needs time to open up and is still a bit shy, and in fact too young. Wait for it a bit.

Yquem 1975 

Absolutely gorgeous! Great balance between the fruit, the acidity, the sweetness, and the alcohol, nicely coating the palate, highly recommended and to revisit in 20 years.

What a great lineup, wouldn't you agree? And that's the reason why I love my job.  

Cheers! Santé!
