LeDomduVin: Tonight's wines

Tonight’s wines 

Philipponnat “Clos des Goisses” Champagne Extra Brut 2012

Bone dry, mineral, zesty, fresh and crisp, generous and nicely expanding, with a lovely balance and a touch of salinity in the long, savoury finish. Pleasantly surprised. Loved it. 

Bernard-Bonin (BB pour les intimes) Meursault vieilles vignes 2019

Young, light, elegant, almost shy,  with a nice attack, good acidity, an ample and round mid-palate, yet vanishing a little on the finish. Well crafted and balanced, overall charming. And yet, I would have loved to get a bit more substance, texture and structure. A bit light and timid for my taste and palate. We double-decanted it to boost it, as it is such a young wine. It showed better after a few hours of opening. That said, I still liked it a lot, though. 

Anne Gros Echezeaux Grand Cru “Les Loachausses” 2019

Enticing nose of freshly crushed cherries and mineral, earthly aromas mingling with floral and peppery notes. A beautiful, complex wine in a light, elegant and refined way. Surely too young, it showed great potential to age for many years. Loooooved it. 

Once again, a lovely trio. 

A “clin d’œil” to Monsieur Olivier Halley (@ohalleyphoto), a fan and a follower of my page for the past 7 years (thank you, much appreciated 🙏😀👍🍷), whom I had the pleasure and the privilege to meet and chat with, for the first time, face to face, as he was one of the guests of tonight’s dinner. Thank you 🙏 

Gordon & MacPhail Linkwood 25-year-old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 

Strong and smooth simultaneously, sophisticated, elegant and layered without being heavy or harsh. Nice discovery.   

Cheers! Santé!
