|The Red; Chianti Classico Reserve, Dominio Reserva, Barbera, 2005 Saint Emillion Grand Crus|
|Gonzalo and JC|
The Dominio is a fruitier fuller bodied wine, whereas the Baron Boutisse has a smooth complexity that ensures it will continue to get better with age. Both would serve as the perfect accompaniment to charcuterie or cheese plate.
- The Sauvignon Blanc, which if from the largest organic farm in the world, was also popular among imbibers. In my opinion it's perfect for a warm day spent outside. Good for casually sipping, or as an accompaniment to a picnic, the ease and lightness allow for versality. And hey, it's organic which means less of a hangover! Organic ensures it has less sulfites. Less sulfites equals less headache.
Thanks to all of our guests, JC, and Gonzalo, and the kind people at Sakesan. Can't wait for next week!
