1999 Domaine Comte Senard Corton Clos Du Roi & 1996 Domaine Bachelet Bourgogne

I wasn’t planning on drinking two bottles of burgundies for dinner a few days ago but these were just so drinkable and yummy that my dinner companion and I finished every single drop with the roast chicken,  and baby spinach & tomatoes salad!

The bourgogne from Domaine Bachelet was a little more tart and acidic than the Corton Grand Cru but both were equally youthful, perfumed with ripe cherries & red fruits, and well balanced on the palate.

If only we could rate the wines using the method Dr. Vino suggested in his latest post: “where the highest praise is a rating of “quickly emptied.”

How quickly do YOU empty your bottles? 🙂
