WTN: 2 which rock, 1 which sucks

Drappier Carte d'Or Brut NV 12% 16,99e for ½ bottle

Orange, almost rosé colour! Yummy. Paradoxically fruit forward and savoury. A great "cheap" champ.

Yalumba Barossa Bush Vine Grenache 2004 14,5% 14,80e

In a sense this showed promise. There was vegetality on the nose - it was savoury rather than a gobby. But the palate was fiery. For f**k's sake, why can't they make ripe wines Down Under today with less alcohol - even the 80's Granges were under 13% abv?

Trimbach Cuvée des Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre Gewurztraminer 1999 13,5% 24,80e

This rocks! 'Nuff said. Logorrhaic TN posted elsewhere. But as I'm a bit of a perfectionist in some matters I wanted the dinner's TNs all in one post ;)
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.

I need to purchase some more Ribeaupierre. I was quite impressed the one time I sampled it.
