When you get the call saying the fresh Alaskan king crab has arrived by air you can't let jet lag stop you! This 2010 was very rich and showed more oak than the 2012 Follatieres that I drank in Burgundy last week, but was excellent with the crab. The food snapped this big boy into focus and brought out some lime like zip.

Showed well. Full but not overdone. Proper mineral, lemon curd, freshness to the core. Ship shape. Magnum.

Color me a Jacques guy. Well made, but stylistically not my cup of tea.

Totally fantastic right now. So pleasurable a complex, with this toasted sesame note that I've been picking up in great white burg recently. Just the right amount of everything. Harmony. Balance, in the true sense.
