New Years Eve - Wine & Food

A great evening with dear friends - we ate & drank well!

Still young, perky, steely and lemony, this stunner needs another 6+ years in the cellar (92p)
A tartar of red beets with mustard, olive oil and balsam vinegar

A perfect match to the red beet dish - a high spirited nose with nuts, detergent and white nougat (90p)

Ceviche with prawns, avocado and more

Portabello mushroom in a puff pastry sheel with goat chesse, thyme and garlic

2002 Corton - barely mature with a fine intensity, nutty, grassy, lovely (93p)
2013 Saint-Aubin Les Frionnes, Hubert Lamy - handsome, refined and vital with a long life ahead (94p)
2013 Meursailt Perriéres, Bouchard - deep, regal and just stunning (96p)

Scallops Provencale

Lobster tortelloni with lobster sauce and fried sage

1989 Barbaresco Dai Vigneto Loreto e Brich Ronchi  - only the second vintage from Albino Rocca, deep, meaty and with a rough balance, great wine (93p)
1989 Barbaresco Brichet, Sottimano - A tad sturdy and brawny but with fine, sweet fruit, still rather young (89p)
2001 Barolo Cannubi, Scavino - ripe strawberries, ripe earth, mushrooms and licorice, goes on and on and on (95p)

Lamb, potatoes, carrots and a port wine sauce
Happy New Year!
