    Default Reveillon wines

    (or as my daughter put it in her menus: Davis' New Year Eatery).

    2002 Luneau-Papin Clos du Poyet (with Breton Crab claws and Nyons OO
    mayonnaise). A very richly layered, long wine built on a huge flinty
    backbone. Shells, iodine, toast, citrus... Perfect match for the crab
    and the deeply flavored mayo.)

    1988 Ch. La Nerthe 'Cuvee Cadettes' CdP (with Pheasant stewed in muscat
    grapes and cognac). A low neck fill, this was one of the bottles that
    was "forgotten" in storage, although in a dirt floored and fairly cool
    space. (These wines are a bit prematurely aged if anything.) Still, a
    big nose of candied plum, and a classic and very elegant CdP, only
    medium in length and with tannins fully resolved but with a sound
    structure and enough acids left to make it very balanced. A little over
    the hill for the pheasant, perhaps.

    NV Ruinart 'Brut Rose' (with an assortment of home made cookies,
    checkerboards and pinwheels on the chocolate side, whiskey/caraway,
    sesame and holiday sugar cookies). Very fine mousse, nice creamy pinot
    character, cake and yeast, an enjoyable bottle to bring in 2011. (I
    prefer the Billecart-Salmon but couldn't procure it).

    A very happy New Year to AFW, may your wines and your loved ones be
    undamaged!

    I too enjoyed the Ruinart Pinot though I prefer their Brut. I have
    given up on finding any more Billecart Salmon as it has gotten too
    expensive and difficult to find. None around here in Santa Fe.
