Pinot, '04 Delaye St Veran, Cusumano Angimbe, Perrin CdR, Allegrini Valpo). There's always a matching recipe, obviously nothing will work with all of those. But Florence Fabricant used a recipe for lobster and tomatoes over pasta, saying the dish would be the star and the reasonable wines the backdrop. Betsy decided to try last night, and we had this with an asparagus salad and the 2004 Jean Manciat "Franclieu" Macon-Charnay (I owned none of the featured wines, and since I touted this to Bob Ross thought I'd give another try). Pure apple fruit framed by a chalky minerality and clean clear acidity. This is not aiming to be anything but what it is, a pretty, straightforward, and refreshing Macon. Tasty, typical, and thrifty, the 3 Ts add up to a B+ with an A for value ($13).
