Got together with a couple of good dudes last night for our ongoing Burgundy education and tasty food. The inimitable Rowdy was our host, and EatItAtlanta put stopped eating grits long enough to attend. A good time as usual.
Didn't really take notes, but scribbled some thoughts on a paper towel. Some real fine Premier and Grand Crus here. Thanks Rowdy.
1999 Clos des Lambrays-Some structure here. Weightless, but firm. Minerals and herbs. Dark cherry lurking. Lots of energy here. Quite nice, bordering on inspiring, but even brighter days ahead. A fine youngish Grand Cru from Lambrays in Morey St. Denis.
2002-Louis Jadot Couchereaux-Underbrush and cherry nose. Candied red fruit palate. Rather soft on the palate. Herbal and slightly spiced. To pick, a whisp of heat on the finish. No biggie, but good drinking anyway.
I'm no expert, but pretty damn sure the 2004 Meurgets Corton Charlemagne was premoxed. Bummer, but the only downside to another great night of wine, food, and revelry.
