Default TN: Cuvee Buster with flatfish

Quiet night at home after the holiday rush, Betsy prepared flounder
while I listened to Pete Fornatale play The Court of the Crimson King.
A meuniere style presentation of the flounder, some boiled red
potatoes, and some broccoli rabe. Usually with a main course like the
this I go with white Burgundy, but I had the 2005 Thomas-Labaille
"Les Monts Damnes -Cuvee Buster" Sancerre in my drink queue. I had
seen on a link on WLDG a Joe Dressner interview where he said Buster
(his dog) had died; as a dog person I had pulled this bottle to drink
a toast. Big style of Sancerre, quite ripe, yet with good acidic
backbone. Citrus fruits with a nice tangy edge, but plenty of
sweetness. Mineral (chalk, flint) and floral notes. Does ok with the
dish, but I think I've liked good Burgundy more. But the wine itself
is a quite nice, although maybe not exactly textbook Sancerre. Wish I
had more. A-/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.**
