WTN: 1988 Chateau Pavie St. Emillion Bordeaux France.
Medium red color, deep hue, no bricking apparent, lovely aroma of fruit and spice, very good fruit, spice and earth tastes, well developed and mild tannins, very light acidity, wonderful balance, medium mouth feel, long, lingering finish with a tannic finish on the tongue, quite a pleasant wine. Janet loved the aroma and the taste. 4*.
This wine has continued to please this summer. We worked late, then had a simple dinner of grilled chicken, green beans and broccoli. The wine made our dinner special.
At 10:00 I stepped outside to glance at the Pleiades Shower -- not much hope with a brilliantly clear sky but a very bright moon. Ten seconds later a brilliant fireball raced from the south east to northwest, at least 120 degrees, brilliantly yellow. The best meteor I've seen in six years. The meal, the wine, the company and the sky were winners last night. :-)
