Strips of thinly sliced beef cooked in lots of EVOO with a mixture of
spices to emulate Moroccan flavours, over cous-cous and wilted leafy
greens garnished with a liberal sprinkle of chopped mint and fresh
tomato. Possibly not red wine friendly fare, but.........
2004 Ch. Lynch Bages, Pauillac, medium dark red, nice aromatics.
Strong primary cabernet flavours, good acidity, unobtrusive integrated
oak. Excellent cut through the spicy food, happy with food match.
Thanks for notes. I don't have a lot of '04 Bdx, dollar was fairly weak against Euro when they were released and so they seemed expensive. I had a lot of '96-'01 claret and mostly sat out. But those I've tasted recently have been pretty good.
Because '04 was a birthyear for our son, I did buy a few '04 Bdx, but
mostly bought elsewhere in that year. Haven't opened any of the '04s I
did buy, though (the Meyney is particularly tempting).
