cous cous

I ate cous cous after a while. I've opened a white wine. it was 2006 Nouveau, and made by Grande Coline. I liked this smell. It smells like fruits and toast. only Chardonnay?

wine tasting dec 2006

We've enjoyed the wine tasting party at the last time of this year.

everybody brought something for the party. I brought some cheeses, Cour de camembert au calvados, Ubriaco Rosso, and Robiola di Roccaverano. Robiola di Roccaverano was so nice. it's covered with the fig leaves. very nice with white wine.

The first of all, we've tasted alfred gratien, paradis. the wine shop treat this. he's said it's aged. I didn't asked how long it's been aged though. still acidity and smell honey. rich champagne.

anjou, chenin blanc, jean christophe garnier. This is so nice chenin blanc. It went nice with Robiola di Roccaverano.

it's thick wine. I'm not familiar with bordeaux. but it went nice with Boeuf bourguignon.

I liked the wine like this. the wine shop owner said this winery makes the cote rotie by a traditional way. adding little viognier. I wonder why people think blend little white wine. Anyway, I liked this.

gevrey chambertin, philippe pacalet. nice pino noir. as for me, this wine was a charming wine.

Domain Ostertag, Gewurztraminer, vendanges tardives. and tiramisu. nice wine. it made me feel rich.

I liked this wine, but I also think it could be fun to drink after ages.

le rose de janot

I didn't know he made a rose wine. It tastes simple, and really good.

old pot

I've been using this pot over 10 years. there are many cracks on the pot. I want a new pot by now.

today's lunch

a pasta with shiitake mushroom and shishitou which is a jaapnese hot pepper. shishitou doesn't taste hot usually, but there is a few very hot ones sneaking sometimes. then we yell, "I got hit!!".

tonight cigar

I've bought a cigarillo and a mini cigar on my way to go home. griffinos and macanudo ascot. I've tried maduro ascot before. it's different from each other. they are nice for people who wanna smoke, but don't have enough time.
