    Default Cos, Mortet, Aubert, etc.

    Had friends visiting this weekend so we had drinks then dinner on the
    terrace.

    With assorted cold fresh shellfish:
    2007 Aubert Lauren Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay-my first taste of
    Aubert. A bit cloudy in the glass. Nose of oranges and lemons.
    Quite ripe pear and white peach notes on the palate with a finish of
    fresh Meyer lemon. Just a tad bit soft for my tastes but quite rich
    and polished. "B+"

    2002 Olivier Leflaive Montrachet-Shimmering gold in the glass. Very
    fresh nose of lemon zest a bit of vanilla and crushed gravel.
    Explosive flavors on the palate. A burst of lemon zest, a fair amount
    of fresh apple and a very clear minerality. The wine changed with
    each sip. "A"

    With fresh tomato salad & burrata:
    2007 Pieropan Soave Classico-Brilliant nose of lemon/lime with a hint
    a salinity. Very nice on the palate with a terrific balance of fruit
    and acidity. Plenty of fresh lemon with a bit of fennel on the
    finish. "B+/A-"

    With Wild Mushroom Risotto & Red Cow Parmigiano

    2004 Denis Mortet Gevrey Chambertin Les Champeaux-Ruby red in the
    glass. Rich ripe noe of crushed red raspberries and blackberries.
    Smooth on the palate with plum, blackberry and black cherry notes.
    Plenty of mushroom and minerality on the finish. A bit concentrated.
    "B+/A-"

    With Grilled Ribeye Steaks and Fingerling potato salad:
    2000 Cos d' Estorunel-Dark purple almost black in the glass. Effusvie
    nose of cassis and oaky vanilla. Still quite young and primary
    although the tannins were quite smooth and polished. Plenty of black
    fruits, a bit of anise and cedar. Still very young. "A-"

    Thanks for the note on this, Dale. I have a bottle of Aubert Chard,
    untried so far, that I bought on the recommendation of FL Jim Cowan.
    Maybe it wasn't a mistake....

    Nice selection of wines!

    The wines were gifts from my guests except for the Mortet.

    You're quite welcome, though it was Bill's note.

    Sounds like a good year for the Pieropan regular bottling

    When you have a place on the beach in Florida in the winter you'd be
    surprised at the friends that you have!
