Today's Wine Tasting Note

I found this one in the bargain bin for a mighty fine price, apparently because someone at the wine shop decided it was "too old." For the bucks, it seemed worth the price; and while it might have shed some of its fruit, I still found it plenty appealing, perhaps even having gained some complexity to compensate.

Francis Cotat 1992 Chavignol "Les Culs de Beaujeau" Sancerre ($5.99/sale price)
Clear straw color. Appetizing green-pea and musky melon aromas; crisp and tart flavor, mirrors the nose, clean and long. Plenty of life in it yet! U.S. importer: Willett Distributing Co., Alexandria, Ky. (April 9, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Errr ... anchovy pizza from Pizza Hut. :)

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
