Default TN: ok Regnie

Last night was leftover short ribs and mushroom risotto, plus a salad
topped with lardons and sauteed mushrooms. I went looking for Pinot
but came up with Gamay, the 2007 Christian Ducroux Regnie. Not a
producer I know, but Chambers was recommending (I think it's BioD, and
priced below $15). Rather crunchy and reserved red (cranberry and
strawberry) fruit, some light tannins, not very giving. Betsy says she
doesn't really like, and I can't say I'm wild about it. Gets a bit
better with some air. Maybe it was the match, but not my Beaujolais of
the month. We'll see how it does tonight. 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.*
