Weekend Carnage


I’ve spent a lovely and thoroughly inebriating weekend with friends in Seattle, which was well worth the physical toll it might have exacted upon my body. The above photo was taken as the sun was coming up on Sunday morning, just before we finally got around to turning in for bed....

There were far too many great wines to detail, but some of the highlights included the new vintage of Clos des Goisses rosé, which was just as profound as the first one; a severe, almost punishing (but glorious) bottle of 1996 Krug; and a creamy, complex 1973 Dom Ruinart. One very strange bottle: 1997 Lafon Montrachet, which was brown, oxidative and very mature. It wasn’t a storage issue, either. Brown white burgundy is no fun. Brown wines are much better when they’re like this absolutely thrilling bottle of Valdespino Rare Oloroso from their Signature Series:

Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
