Somewhat shrill, austere. I decided it wasnt a good match. Actually better on day 3, but on day 1 B-/C+

I have a number of MĂĽllen's Trockens in the cellar. Not a good sign
based on your reaction to this one.

Saturday we got one lobster as an appetizer
2019 Piuze €śTerroir de Chablis€ť Chablis
Seriously good for Chablis AC. Crisp lemon and pear, chalky minerality, vibrant acids. B++
One more (petty I admit) reason I wish this whole pandemic was past is that Id love to get a few people together to try all the village terroir wines together. Inconvenient for just Betsy and I!

I hear you. We end up with the dilemma of finishing a bottle between
the two of us or storing it for later, then dealing with a collection of
opened bottles a week or two later. In the end, we're probably
consuming more during our self-selected quarantine.

Roast chicken, leftover sweet potatoes, spinach
2011 Chevillon Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes
I ran across this and thought €śwell they say 2011 is early drinking, and it is a village wine.€ť Well, its also Chevillon. Tannic and acidic structure, the fruit is there but held in check. B/B- for drinking now, I think this will be excellent but this might be my only bottle

Woof! An '11 with that much tannin? That reminds me of my '07 Chandon
de Briailles P-V IdV bottles that have been hard as rocks.

Main course was Fluke ssam , with side of baby Shanghai

Wow, I like the sound of this course especially. Is it also from the
Momofuku cookbook?

Congrats, BTW, on getting your first dose of vaccine. Coincidentally,
Jean and I both got ours on the same day as you. Jean was almost giddy
with excitement thinking about being able to travel and go out again

Fun notes, as always!
