    Default Pairing v. 2

    Intro (voice over):
    He's back and this time ... he has brought a bottle of Chinese soy ...
    End intro
    Hello,
    Xina had been to the Monopolloly and retrieved a few bottles, two of them
    from the Commandment sortiment - the kind that you have to order two weeks
    in advance. One of the was a Chambolle-Musigny 2000 from Jadot, a reputable
    negociant-eleveur whom we had the pleasure of visiting in 2001 (thanks,
    Jim). We uncorked it (tested it, visally, olfactorily, and on palate -
    delicious) and poured in carafe, and let rest in contact with air for about
    1 hrs.
    The, had it with the previously mentioned duck's breast with a sauce of
    CHinese soy, honey, and 5-spice. On side, buttered leek and steamed spinach
    in a sauce of peanut butter, light soy, and a dash of rice vinegar.
    [c] Fairly light, youngish (no brick tones)
    [n] Quintessentially Bourgogne, roses, red fruit, very fragant, as should be
    expected from a C-M. Nothing funky.
    [p] Despite its 8 years, this wine still rests on the fruit, it has not
    developed any discernible tertiary notes. It has a lovely balance and
    tannines without any parts sticking out, and good length. It was a perfect
    foil to the duck's breast (pan fried on the skin side, then warmed to an
    interior temperature of 61 centigrade in oven set at 80 degrees), had not
    quarrel with the leek nor the spinach, and co-existed with the soy sauce
    (more a condiment than a sauce, really) in acceptable harmony.

    Pinot Noir forever.

    Cheers

    Nils

    A wise man once said.."Pinoy, pinot, pinot." Thanks for the follow up.
