2004 Château Pontet-Canet, Pauillac – Update

Just a quick update on the 2004 Château Pontet-Canet since my last taste of it, a year ago. The wine certainly has changed, shows much less closed than last time, but still has some years to go before peaking.

All-Rhône Reds Blind-Tasting

Last thursday we were about 10 wine-buddies gathering at our generous host Nick‘s home for a blind-tasting of red Rhône wines. This time there were absolutely no limits as all reds from all-over the Rhône-region were permitted, drastically differentiating it from our last tasting at Nick’s when only Southern Rhône reds were allowed, as well as from the last blind tasting at my place where boundaries were set by the Syrah varietal, originally stemming from that area but now being planted all over Planet Wine.

This means that each of the 12 bottles we popped that night could be anything from Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage to Côtes du Ventoux and Châteauneuf-Du-Pape, hence also mixing single-varietal wines with those that represent cuvées. As you can see, with each blind-tasting we are slowly encircling what both Rhône and Syrah have to offer. Are we gonna grasp the essence of it tonight? Dream on, dreamer..

Farewell Wine-Tasting: Not a regular TGIF Night!


Last weekend we had what we then called a diablog meeting which is supposed to mean a wine-evening with fellow blogger and friend Didier who after a year in Germany is moving back to France. So diablog of course, because I am now blogging about those wines, and I am sure he soon will too he blogged about it as well. For the wine selection, there was no topic, so it was a chaotic mix of styles and types; not senseless though, just chaotic: Reds and Whites, aged and younger ones, French, German and even Swiss, Sweet and Dry. The only idea maybe behind one bottle was an ultimate test of courage for someone who was about to leave Germany: (really) aged Riesling. Otherwise it was more about having a good time. So of course, thanks Didier for having me over and also thanks Mizuki for the delicious Japanese dinner.

Mmmmh! Japanese Chili-Prawns!

Côte de Boeuf and Pontet Canet 2004


Yes I know, summer is finally there and screams for light wines: whites, rosés and maybe a fruity red, but this nice piece of Charolais simply begged on its knees for a powerful Pauillac.

And it’s true: it would be a shame to serve this Côte de Boeuf, medium-rare, with an unworthy wine.
