Our dinner plans took a quick change when we received a call from our very fancy pants restaurant that the wine dinner (La Spinetta) was cancelled because the distributor didn't get them the wines...wtf, really? Our immediate back up was our favorite French bistro with the best comfort food one can ask for, delivered with precision every time, so consistent!
2017 Chablis, just amazing, got the cut strawberry note on the nose all night, then the wet limestone kicks in, great stuff, perfect restaurant bottle, immediately accessible. — 14 days ago

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has bruised yellow apple, cold butter, fresh green herbs and wet oak.
Palate has baked apple, squeeze of lemon juice, lemon zest and round, mild oak influence.
Our final bottle of the 2005, likely one of the best bottles to our memory. This could likely continue to hold a few more years, before noticeably decline. — 19 days ago
