TN: a week or so of wines

I thought I was buying a Thierry Puzelat SB, but the 2012 Puzelat-Bonhomme
Touraine Sauvignon Blanc was a fresh juicy example, with grapefruit, grass,
and gooseberry. Tasty and easy to drink. B
With flounder the Picq “Dessus La Carriere” Chablis. Fairly full styled
, apples and flowers with some light mineral notes. Moderate acids, good le
ngth, B/B+
With herb roasted Cornish game hen , the 2010 Domaine Ferret “Sous Vergis
son” Pouilly Fuisse . Full, a whisper of oak, a little on the fat side, b
ut with long finish, B
No wine Wednesday as I went from work to feeding some clients to board meet
ing to taking a group from an NYU sorority on a Run, so Thursday I was happ
y we had Dave and MK joining us, an excuse to open 2 bottles. With teriyaki
pork roast, broccoli with peppers, oyster mushrooms, and rice we had a bub
bly and a red. The NV Serata Prosecco del Veneto was nice for the under $
10 price tag- styled extra dry not brut, appley (but a fresh apple, not c
idery), refreshing. B
The 2011 2011 Vissoux (Chermette) “Coeur de Vendanges” Beaujolais was p
retty tight at first, but with air it blossomed. Full, sappy, pure, with a
long finish, B+
Some wild salmon grilled with herbs and the 2010 Copain “Tous Ensemble”
Chardonnay. Tasty, pear fruit with no apparent oak, balanced acids, nice m
idweight. B+/B
With steaks with a cumin/aleppo rub, kubocha soup (with mint, basil, chile)
, and ,salad, the
1996 Troplong-Mondot. Tannins on this are finally manageable, but it still
doesn’t exude much charm. Stern, with modest plum and dark berry fruit, s
ome cigarbox and menthol. OK with a steak but I wouldn’t seek this out, a
nd regret 13-14 years of cellar space. 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 pa
rty where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivi
ty, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
