LeDomduVin: Karaoke Night!

Karaoke night! 

I titled this post "Karaoke Night" as I served these wines during a private dinner where the host and the guests sang Karaoke songs between each dish, from videos displaying lyrics on 3 big screens on the surrounding walls. It was a relaxed and casual night. A Karaoke Night!   

Philipponnat Clos des Goisses Extra-Brut 2012

Beyond its pale golden color and attractive aromas of yellow fruits, stone fruits, and toasted brioche, it is rich, dense, intense, complex, ample, and layered, with an excellent balance and a long, satisfying finish. What a beautiful Champagne!

Bernard Bonin Meursault Vieilles Vignes 2019

Pale goldenish color. It boasts aromas of lemon zest, apple, and stone fruits mingling with chamomile, gingerbread, buttery toasted oak, and mineral notes. Medium-bodied, Fresh, zesty, complex, and elegant, with excellent structure and good tension on the palate. Focus from the attack to the long and crisp finish. Love it. 

Palmer Margaux 2016

A blend of 47% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot, Palmer 2016 is a great combination of power, richness, complexity, freshness, balance, and elegance. Deep, inky color in the glass. The nose displays fresh, fragrant, concentrated blackberries, earth, and flower aromas. Beyond its fresh and juicy attack, the palate expands and gains in density, intensity, richness, and complexity, balanced by excellent acidity and framed with present, chewy, yet integrated tannins. The finish is youthful and very long, demonstrating aging potential. Although probably too young, Palmer 2016 is incredibly approachable and drinkable now. A sophisticated and classy wine. 

Bernard Dugat-Py Charmes Chambertin 1996

This bottle was a gift to the host from one of the guests, and although I was very tempted to open it, I did not, so I can't tell you about it. Next time, maybe.😊👍🍷

Cheers! Santé!
