A heap of fresh crustaceans and a mature white Burgundy - a recipe for a great friday evening!
1992 Pouilly-Fuissé Clos Reyssié, Domaine Valette
Right out of the bottle this gives pure joy. A deep, round, mature nose with notes of dried apricots, almond paste, butter fried nuts, dried flowers and some smokey aromas. Very, very good. I opened it one hour before dinner and now, two hours later, it keeps things together nicely.
The taste is broad, mature and velvety with notes of apricot bread, matchbox, assorted nuts and moist autumn leaves. Long and concentrated. Perfectly mature. A fine warmth. Drinking great on this evening.
