Going on 5 yrs, thought I’d give this unusual Cru Bojo from Brouilly a try. It’s singularity is first hinted at with a 14.5% abv; it also needs air & time to really come together; finally, it has some serious tannins. Like arid desert dry tannins, or something that one would get in only a Southern French red— like Madiran ( Tannat) or Cot (Malbec). At end of day, needed a good decant or another 3/4 yrs.

Toujours aussi bien, la cuvée des fous. Un brouilly puissant, inhabituel, pas dans l’air du temps, qui dirai Gamay? Grosse Concentration, full body, belle structure, old vines... but yum!!!

I loved this - natural wine, £22 a bottle, nice minerality combined with a bit of fruit. I would buy it again. Had it with Sous vide chicken and over roasted potatoes and it was great!

You’re my friend and you’re always going to be my friend and if people don’t see how comfortable and warm you make people feel then that’s their problem! Honestly dude those people are masochists! You were made to be the sweetest host, the one who never judges, the perpetual smile. I think it’s quite possible your mood ring is always glowing red or glowing whatever colour means pleasant. Don’t let this cruel world turn you cold. Mon amis you are a special breed.
