Some friends came over for dinner tonight, I shucked a few oysters, we had  
some cukes with smoked salmon and creme fraiche, and started with the NV Br
emont “Cuvee Prestige” Brut Champagne. I’ve still g
ot some of this from a lot several years ago, but this is a fresh graymarke
t., Fresh, citrusy, bread and herb notes. Good, and my friend Ron says to s
ource him some. Big but bright. B+/A-

Dinner was a couple of small roast chickens, with Ottolenghi green couscous
 (arugula, herbs, pistachio) and his roast sweet potatoes with lemongrass c
reme fraiche.  

1995 Edmunds St. John “Les Cotes Sauvages”
As others have reported, this is in a nice place. Smoky, meaty, with red fr
uits and a touch of herb. The tannins are resolved, raspberry and strawberr
y fruit is quite fresh. Fun! A-/B+

Sec-tendre, apple and wool with an overlay of spring flowers. Tasty. B+
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine,
 B a good wine, C drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a p
arty where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivi
ty, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
