Barbaresco revisited:

What a great lunch.

Ribs and Barbaresco do go together very well, so does good quality well aged, not over aged beef.

Do you want a new pairing for Chocolate Souffle?

You got it, Barbaresco Il Bricco 2004 from Pio Cesare.

It was a great three hour affair, I look forward to doing it all over again in another month.

Change of venue, new wine choices.

Cheval Blanc 2009

Chateau Cheval Blanc, that great wine from Saint Emillion Bordeaux, made with Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
The 2009 vintage has more Merlot in the blend than Cabernet Franc,the vinyard is actually planted with more Cabernet.

Most tatsters were impressed with the aromas of black fruits, and hints of chocolate.

When the wine arrives in a years time, true tatsters will have to wait ten years before it starts to show, and it's life is expected to continue past thirty five years.
