    Default Roulot, Clapton & Winwood

    We went to see Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood last night here in
    Columbus and stopped at our favorite restaurant on the way for some
    wine and apps. I ordered a bottle of 2004 Guy Roulot "Les Tessons"
    Meursault to go with our crab cakes, scallops and escargot
    appetizers. The wine was pale gold and coated the glass. Lots of
    apple and pear notes on the palate with a well balanced acidity and
    fruit profile. The wine was a B+ the concert was an A+.

    One of the guys last night is in the biz, a consultant for mostly high
    end collectors. He was saying most of them look at him like he's crazy
    when he says he prefers Roulot to Coche Drury.
    So, they did some Blind Faith? Was rest split between their history?

    The wines are certainly different animals. I prefer the Coche-Dury
    but one could make a compelling argument for either one. Roulot makes
    a pretty good Marc from chardonnay as well. They did a little Blind
    Faith, and a lot of there own stuff. Overall it was very well done
    and having seen EC about 20 times it might be the best I've heard him
    play yet.
