LeDomduVin: Comme un Vendredi
Today's « mise en place » for lunch.
« Ça, c'est du lourd !!! » as we say in French!
Domaine Perrot-Minot Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru « La Richemone » Vignes Centenaires 2018
A classic in my selection. I have opened several bottles these past ten months and absolutely love it.
Domaine Ponsot « Clos de La Roche » Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes 2019
Another classic in my book. It is the one I opened for today’s private lunch, and damn, that is a gorgeous wine!!! A stunning beauty!
Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2014 Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac 2014
From a lesser vintage (a “classic vintage”, as they say in Bordeaux), it was not my choice, but it ended up in the selection. I did not open it this time. And, anyway, it is still too young, and more time will do it good. However, if you want to open it, decant it for about 3 hours before serving it. It should soften the dry, firm, slightly green tannins still in the finish.
Petrus Pomerol 1989
I did not open this one as it was given as a gift to one of the guests. However, I was lucky enough to have opened many bottles in the last 12 years (especially at my previous job for nine years). It is a stunning wine, and this bottle was in pristine condition with a high level. I inspected it carefully, and, for those of you who may wonder, it was a real one. It must have been reconditioned at the property in the past 15 to 20 years; otherwise, it is impossible. It is a rare sight, as there are not many left in the market (real ones, I mean, as many Petrus from the 80s were counterfeited, so there are probably quite a few fake ones still out there).
I love my job!
