Default TN: 2 good wines (Riesling and Chardonnay)

Before I went to my local group Friday, I grilled some franks in time
to have dinner with Betsy. Opened the 2007 Hoffmann-Simon Piesporter
Goldtropfchen Kabinett. Lush peach fruit with orange marmalade, on
sweet side for Kabinett, but with some tense acidity. Revisited a
couple days later holding up well. Not the stunner the Haart PG Kab
is, but about half the price. B

Sunday (92F in April) we went to visit an employee in the hospital,
stopped by Fairway on way home and got a whole red snapper. Stuffed it
with herbs and lemon, grilled alongside some potatoes and fava beans.
Wine was the 2007 Boudin Chablis. Rather steely, citrus and apple
fruit, nice mineral notes on a finish that's rather long for Chablis
AC. Besides, who wouldn't like a wine named for sausage? B+/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 party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
