Live from Eriks winebar!

I hate my Ipad right about now... Just supposed to make a change in the text, and the whole text just vanished...

Anyway - the short version - drank lunch at Eriks winebar today..., the best winebar in Stockholm in my opion. Had a glass of this while waiting for the food
2008 Meursault Les Vireuils, Domaine Roulot
A fine, steely, young nose with notes of sweet minerals, butter fried nuts, lemon peel and summer flowers. Not that expressive, but laid back elegant. Very good. Has potential.
The taste is young, fresh and intense with notes of lemon peel, lemon water, cold butter and sweet minerals. Long and fresh. The acidity is high and mighty but the friendly kind. Very, very good.
91p   (tasted 2012/01)

With my steak Rydberg I wanted something big and heavy and went for a glass of
2008 Relentless, Shafer
The nose is wide open with big, brawny fruit - sweet blueberries ans boysenberries - and there is also vanilla oak flavours, violets and Valrhona chocolate. On the right side of not being to sweet.
The taste is more withdrawn with a very good structure, big but nicely polished tannins, and the sweet fruit is lurking in the background. Long and warm. Need another few years in the cellar, but very good right now.
