Had it twice: once at home alone and a second time and another bottle shared with friends in NYC last weekend. I know there is more Burgundy wine to taste, but first I may need to find me a rich sugar daddy with a love for travel, opera, and more importantly, wine....
In all seriousness, I continue to be fascinated by wine in general, and how a wine changes. Earlier this week I had a Carignano del Sulcis of Santadi, which kept relaxing and opening up by the hour; by day three it actually showed more complexity and spice that was a lot more pleasing to me than on day 1. So this truly fascinates me about wine's evolution - luckily the wine got better with time.

What, for you, is that wine right now?
White burgundy, here.
I just bottled a blend of Vidal-Vignoles-Cayuga. My current fascination is with Vignoles. This is the first time I've made it in about 15 years - hard to find.Carl Eppig wrote:...When they do their own thing as in a Traminette-Chardonel-Vidal Blanc blend, or eastern tried and true as in Riesling; they do OK...

I match it anywhere I can use an American Pinot Noir as well as with spicy dishes . It goes so well with Cajun foods.
