pino noir

We've tasted some pino noir tonight.

This isn't pino. It was hot and humid today, so that we drink this nice Petillant. It tasted little sweet and smelt like strawberry.

Those two Alsace pino noir are compeltely different each other. The left one was nice tannin and smelt like coffee beans. the right one was easy to drink.

The left wine was charming. and the right one was more tannin.

Those two wine are brewed by one of my favorite vigneron, Catherine & Dominique Derain. I'm a fun of his wine since I've tasted his unique white wine, Mur Mur.

I liked those two pino noir too. Especially, Domaine Pavelot. I loved his white wines.

This wine was served as a blind tasting at the last. That was funny, Everybody couldn't guess this wine was gamay. The shape of the bottle was tricky too. We've enjoyed tonight wine tasting.

ardenistle 1991

a scotch produced by Samaroli. Somehow, I like Samaroli's rum and whiskey. I puffed a cigar with a shot. The cigar was La Eminencia Palmas Natural, a long thin cigar. I liked this size. It's a nice inexpensive whiskey for daily.

plein sud

One of my favorite wines made by Estezargues, a Southern Rhone Cooperative. This blanc was nice and nice golden color. At the first, It smelt orange and honey. After a while, flowery, flint, and fruity. It has also nice acidity. I liked it. The dinner was sauted chicken and goat cheese, Mothais sur feuille. The cheese was nice. I thought that I wanted try aged one too.

weekend drinking

I've enjoyed the dinner with friends tonight. The left wine was made in Italy. It tasted nice acidity, smelt like something burn. It's like chardonnay. The right was a French wine. This wine was also nice, natural taste. There are many grapes in it.

The red was a Rhone, Dominique Rocher, Cairanne. This wine went together with grilled venison. I've heard of that He hasn't made wine now.

I've opened a bottle of Aligote, Domaine Gachot Monot. This aligote is superb! It smelt fruits, pepper. It's strong acidity. I've heard aligote tend to be acid, but this Aligote wasn't.
