Thread: worst match I can remember

    Default worst match I can remember

    After a rather nice 2010 St Just Coulee St Cyr (lemon and grapefruit,
    vanilla custard, apricots with nice length and very refreshing) to go
    with a fried sea bass on a bed of wheat, I put out a couple of cheeses.
    The camembert, not very ripe, worked fine. But on a whim I had picked up
    an undistinguished looking Munster...

    The worst ever. It turned the wine into detergent, bleachy overtones.
    Absolutely undrinkable. Oddly the cheese by itself was OK, but together:
    wow.

    -E

    Chenin Blanc?
    I love wine and cheese, but matches can be unpredictable. Every once in a while I try a match that makes intellectual sense, that totally doesn't work. Sorry you got "bit"

    Chenin indeed, a nice racy one. The level of incompatibility was
    historic! Ugh.

    Say, what's with all the whitespace when you quote my post? What reader
    are you using?

    It's a Giggle Gropes thing, Emery. They have a problem with properly
    word wrapped posts, inserting spurious CRLFs into them. OTOH, when I
    try to reply to one of Dale's posts, I have to manually rewrap the
    quoted text because it comes out in line lengths much longer than 80
    characters. I think that the GG software must expect posts with no word
    wrapping and perforce chop it into 80-char records on its own.

    Ah, that makes sense I guess. I've been using pan, it lets you manually
    rewrap in when necessary. Amazing how a company with so much tech savvy
    can totally screw up something so simple, and customer visible. Oh well.

    cheers!
