    Default [TN] '99 Font de Michelle CNdP

    With a long-awaited break in the temperatures and the prospect of my
    mother leaving the hospital tomorrow, we broiled some lamb chops and opened:

    1999 Font de Michelle Chateauneuf-du-Pape
    nose: meaty, kirschwasser
    palate: vivid acidity, medium body, fully resolved tannins

    Jean had requested a Chateauneuf with the lamb, so I chose this as one
    of our readiest examples. Quite ready with great balance and a very
    "typical" profile of meat and cherry fruit, this wine was a
    counterexample to the "bigger is better" school of winemaking in the
    region. Very nice with the lamb.

    Glad to hear your mom is being released. The CdP sounds nice, I do enjoy the ones not made in steroid style

    Good to hear your mom is better. Agree with Dale as so many recent
    CdP's seem to have jumped the shark.
