Tonight, I cobbled together a dish that I called "Morroccan paella" that
incorporated leftover Easter lamb. Jean suggested a Cotes du Rhone, but
since none were ready in the cellar (mostly Texier) I opted for:

2001 Dom. de L'Espigouette (Bernard Latour) Vacqueyras
nose: blueberry, game, dust
palate: medium body, high acidity, fruit, funk

This wines, from one of my favorite QPR CdR producers, was far better
than the last bottle I'd tried a couple of years ago. Still lively and
with plenty of fruit, it's something that I'll hang on to for another
few years. Purchased at a steep discount of $9.60 a bottle a few years ago.
