TN: Beaujolais (rouge and rose), Saar, Chablis

Monday I was supposed to pick up Betsy at airport after a speech, but she c
aught earlier flight and took a cab. No time for cooking, so I just sauteed
arugula to accompany ordered pepperoni pizza. Wine was the 2013 Foillard C
ote du Py Morgon. Raspberries and herbs, tangy and sappy. Good stuff, I'm g
oing through these too fast. B+/A-
Tuesday my turn- deviled chicken thighs, rice with furikake, asparagus with
miso butter, and salad
2013 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Ockfener Bockstein Kabinett
Good acids, lime and green apple, a spicy note, not for the ages but tasty
. B/B+
Wednesday while I was doing a speech Betsy made bouillabaisse , a radicchio
/fennel/proscuitto salad, and chard. I popped a pink when I got home, the 2
014 Brun/Terres Dorres Rose de Jolie. Beaujolias. Strawberries, a little ea
rth, satisfying and uncomplicated I love rose with bouillabaisse but next t
ime would choose one a bit weightier. B
No wine Thursday as I had a board meeting (but was surprised with a gift of
a river cruise in Bordeaux from board members for 25 years at job).
Friday I grilled some citrus accented salmon (served on arugula with ginger
) as well as vegetables (peppers, squash, fennel), served with 2014 Patrick
Piuze "Terroir de Chichee" Chablis. Apple, citrus, chalky. Good acids, nic
e finish. B/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.
