Over a period of 4 days, the 2006 Jean Claude Thevenet Macon-
Pierreclos. Larger framed Macon, a light sweet note to the apple and
citrus fruit profile, a good mineral edge to the finish. There is a
slightly distracting herb note. Good length for a $14 wine, holds well
for first couple of nights, oxidation too much by day 4 (not
surprisingly). B

With roast chicken and root vegetables and baby bok choy salad , the
2007 Terres Dorees (JP Brun) Beaujolais VV. This is the wine where
apparently the first batch was approved for the AOC, and then the
second and third batches were denied approval as being atypical. Well,
I'd say compared to the average Beaujolais that I've seen the Brun is
indeed atypical, as it is delicious. A little less tannin than the
previous 2 vintages,
a floral nose with a hint of earth, fresh cherry fruit with a little
hint of blackboard chalk. Good acidity, excellent clean finish. what's
not to like? B+

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
