Roast Duck


Comtes de Champagne Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2006

Straw lemon colour. Notes of roast almonds , confit lemon , white flowers and oyster shell. On the palate very refined but quite rounded , creamy texture, with ripe yellow fruits, roast nuts , mineral notes on the long satisfying nutty finish . Good acidity and balance . This seems pretty young still , probably will improve over the next 5 -7 years and plateau a further 10 — a month ago

Cuvée du Rosier Coteaux du Loir Pineau d'Aunis 2020

Absolutely wild stuff, red fruit, white pepper, flowers and funk. Light bodied with just a bit of bite. Would be good with roast chicken — 6 months ago

La Bastide Blanche

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2015

Dark, brooding, almost fruitless. Deep and yet fresh.
Classic Bandol on the nose with leather, spices, garrigue, roast, dried mint and just barely a hint of dark, ripe, creamy blueberries & cassis.
On the palate this is supple, mid-weight, rich with pronounced yet so finely polished tannins. Juicy & fresh, poised and with great depth. A iron fist in a velvet glove.
Surprisingly accessible right after opening yet gains complexity & depth with time. A brilliant food wine! And great value, too!
Love it!!

Keefer Ranch Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2008

2008. The 2007 Keefer Ranch was one of my highest rated wines ever. The 2008 has similar flavors, but less intense, and a little more savory aromas. Glad I opened it first while we were waiting for the duck to finish roasting because the Walt I opened after had a little more acidity and tannins to cut through the duck fat. — 7 months ago

Viña Tondonia Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

2010 is in such a lovely place right now. Such freshness and so fragrant (opened an hour before Xmas dinner): raspberries, red and black currant, bing cherry, geranium, anise seed, dill, potting soil, sandalwood, cocoa butter, cayenne pepper, cumin, iron. Paired with herb-crusted, slow roast pork butt, heirloom beans, turnips and chard (aka Christmas carnitas). — 5 months ago
