24/10/2007 (TNB)

  • Champagne Silver Brut NV (A. Clouet) All Pinot from Bouzy and no dosage - I got some stick once for suggesting this as an every day Champagne but although it is quite muscular in a slightly Bollinger way, the fruit is very good and the dryness makes it very appetising to me. A lovely fizz. Scraping **** even.
  • Puligny Montrachet 1er cru Demoiselles 1994 (Colin-Deleger) A bit flat compared to other bottles of this, but still pretty good. ***
  • Rioja Gran Reserva Prada Enea 1994 (Muga) Seems to need some time to breath - better the next day, in fact. Attractive old-fashioned stuff, but lacking a real buzz. Is this (and indeed is Rioja generally these days) quite the thing it once was? Will this make great drinking like the 1970? ***
