Another expensive one. I can't stop myself!
Bad blurry picture! The iPhone has been really pissing me off lately.
Michel & Stephane Ogier, Cote-Rotie, 2005.
The best wine that I've had in a long time period. So richly textured with flavors of smoked bacon and game, but even through all that old world savoriness it remains totally clean. What I really love is the sweetness of the fruit and the underlying minerality. Like having duck ala orange or something. (Ok, that's gross, but you know what I mean.) We had it at lunch at the winery last week too. Split between 10 people, its the perfect mid-afternoon pick me up.
It is on sale now at K&L for $79.99 (down from $89.99). So much for fiscal responsibility. I think I need some regulation of my own.
George Bush, where are you?? Come save me from myself lover!
