A quiet Saturday night in

But with what wines!

We had Bron and Maggie round for a DP on Saturday and used it as an excuse to open some of our finest wines - Bron like Mary being something of a fellow oenophile. Never mind the food, this was the wine list:

• Reisling 1994, Domaine Zind Humbrecht, Clos Windsbuhl
• Bâtard-Montratchet 1982, Blaine-Gagnard
• Chateau Langoa Barton 1985
• Chateau Léoville-Poyferré 1982
• Vouvray Moelleux 1990, Le Haut-Lieu

Normally I prefer the reds but this was a particularly fine assembly of white wines. Having said that the food wasn't bad either and the left over pheasant bits did us for Sunday lunch and some wonderful stock for soup making.

Why are you writing a Blogg?

What purpose does it serve other than to tell us how wealthy , well read , travelled and happilly married you are?

Strange thing writing Blogs, isnt it?

Thanks for the comment.

It is a fair question. Why do I blog? I will formulate an answer and post later. As to "wealthy , well read , travelled and happilly married" they are all relative terms and no reason to disqualify myself from blogging. As to why anyone else would give a rat's a**e about my doings is another question entirely.
