Omni, did you have any good Swiss pinot noir? I know there are some good ones, that normally don't leave Switzerland, and I want some names for the next time I go there. (in a few weeks)

2002 Magnificat by Franciscan. I remember loving this wine back the late 90s (but then again, I was probably drinking '97s pretty consistently and it was hard to miss with those).

 

This has a pretty hot nose of cherry and berry. The entry is rough but shows potential. Probably be a fun wine five years from now. It is at least better than Two Buck Chuck, but hardly enlightening.

Oh yes yes. I will post some of them.

 

Where are you going to be?

 

Geneva -- not really Switzerland at all.

I had Ch Lascombes '70 last night with charwood grilled steak and swiss chard. The Lascombes is still singing nicely albeit with a gradually weakening profile.

Just opened a 2005 Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa.

So far (2nd glass), so good. Anyone familiar with this one?

 

edited to add: label is Alexander Fontein (salvaged from store

after Hurricane Katrina)

:) my bad - I edited when I realized I'd left out the name.

The bottle had Alexander Fontein with an interesting flowering

herb (rosemary I think) on it.

Thanks...I have been trying a few SA wines of late, it sounds like you would buy this one again, yes?

Definitely will look for this one - really dry, crisp, no bad aftertaste.

 

A friend who had a restaurant in New Orleans finally settled with his

insurance people. He managed to salvage some of the wine cellar

that wasn't flooded and sent me several cases of assorted whites.

In addition to the South African, I've got several bottles of Guntrum

2004 Riesling which I haven't tried yet. The highlight of the

shipment was a case of Grey Goose! :) I'm planning to have a

"Martini Tasting" and try recipes on my friends.

Tonight with grilled lamb chops and lentils/carrots/avocado/green onions/etc. had the Maurice Ecard Savigny Les Beaune Les Narbentons '97. Quite a nice wine defying to some extent the reputation of the '97 vintage. A bit edgy perhaps, but still very enjoyable with this dinner.
