A Very Fine Bottle

I often thought that if I actually lived here in Burgundy I would inevitably become jaded about all the great wines we get to drink here on a regular basis. However, going on three years now I’m happy to say it still hasn’t happened. On Saturday night our friends Mark (an export director for the Maison Louis Latour in Beaune) and his wife Coralie came for dinner.

They brought along a bottle of Louis Latour’s Chateau Corton Grancey Grand Cru 1992 (yes, I’m a total geek and took a picture…ok, three pictures actually… of the bottle before letting Franck cart it off to the recycling bin). We drank it along with some wonderful goat’s cheeses we buy from a small producer two villages over. It was sublime. Ahhhhh, Burgundy…
