Some friends came over for dinner tonight, I shucked a few oysters, we had some cukes with smoked salmon and creme fraiche, and started with the NV Bremont €œCuvee Prestige€ Brut Champagne. Ive still got some of this from a lot several years ago, but this is a fresh graymarket., Fresh, citrusy, bread and herb notes. Good, and my friend Ron says to source him some. Big but bright. B+/A-

Dinner was a couple of small roast chickens, with Ottolenghi green couscous (arugula, herbs, pistachio) and his roast sweet potatoes with lemongrass creme fraiche.

As others have reported, this is in a nice place. Smoky, meaty, with red fruits and a touch of herb. The tannins are resolved, raspberry and strawberry fruit is quite fresh. Fun! A-/B+

Sec-tendre, apple and wool with an overlay of spring flowers. Tasty. B+

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C drinkable. 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.
