Default TN: 4 wines I like - 3 Loire, 1 Burg

Tuesday with a veal chop, 2008 Brulees/Auge "L'Erebe " (VdT). Crown-
capped, red plums and cassis, fresh, good acidity, moderate tanins.
Good mouthfeel, good length. B+

Wednesday I had a board meeting, so no wine opened (though leftovers
sampled when I got home late).

Thursday Betsy was back in kitchen with pasta with littleneck clams
and breadcrumbs (from an old Saveur) and roasted kale. Wine was the
2007 Huet "Clos de Bourg" Vouvray Sec. Sec, but not austere, there is
a definite hint of sugar. A bit tight at first, opens into a full-
bodied muscular Chenin, broad apple fruit with earth and a little wax.
Really nice wine, gets better and better through evening. A-

Friday felt like a glass of red when I got home, went with the 2008
Drouhin Cote de Nuits-Villages. Bright cherry fruit, a little herb,
light bodied Pinot with barely perceptible tannins that drinks well
right now. Tasty, easy. B

Dinner was a Biba Caggiano recipe for roasted cod with potatoes, wine
was the 2007 Pascal Cotat "Les Monts Damnes" Sancerre. Zesty citrus
and white pit fruit, good acids, great length. No stereotypical grassy
or catpee notes, but still what I'd regard as classic SB character -
fresh, bold, with a green edge behind white fruit. 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.*
