TN: A Passetoutgrains that impressed!

Dinner last night was a bit delayed due to a dog-training session, but we finally sat down to a delicious chicken with mustard, rice with mushroom and chicken livers, and beans in a butter sauce. Along with dinner we had the 2001 Lafarge Bourgogne Passetoutgrains. I've never had a Passe-tout-grains (hyphens? no hyphens?) that really impressed me, but Lafarge is a favorite producer, so had decided it was worth $12 to try. Very light color, but great depth of flavor. Raspberry and bittersweet cherry fruit, good pure flavors, nice finish. Light pretty wine that was very food-friendly. I was told 50/50 Pinot Noir/Gamay from 50 yr old vines. $12 on Zachy's website this week, I ordered more first thing this AM. B+/A- Now I'm looking forward to trying the Lafarge Aligote (never actually had a Lafarge white, that I can recall).
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C mediocre at best. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice. Dale

Well, even though we've only had her a month, she's already got us pretty well-trained. But we're working hard at changing that. The good thing is she's really smart. The bad thing is she's really smart :) Bassets are notoriously stubborn, but with consistency we've started to make inroads.
