Last night, Jean and I celebrated our 16th Anniversary with a dinner out
(thanks to mom for the babysitting!) at the restaurant Jardiniere in SF.
With our very tasty dinner, we started with glasses of:

1995 Laurent-Perrier Brut

n: bright green apples and lemon, very little toastiness
p: crisp and refreshing, loads of applish fruit and a delicate mousse

2000 Jamet Cote-Rotie

n: minerals, cedar, smoke, quince and berries
p: medium body, soft tannins, deep fruit, a hint of bacon fat, good acidity

We had this half-bottle decanted a half-hour before consuming it and it
opened up nicely by the time our main courses arrived. It was splendid
with my duck breast, but a bit overwhelmed by Jean's red-wine braised
short ribs. Both of us remarked on the resemblance (in the nose,
mostly) to a Burgundy, despite its very distinct Syrah character.
Although it clearly has years yet ahead of it, this wine was thoroughly
enjoyable now.

Both wines were tremendous, and even though a reader might think that

great wines, very good food and a lovely evening out to celebrate our
