I was lucky to get invited by friends to this long standing group of wine lovers, who put on and organized a terrific event with wines from all of our cellars. This was structured into 5 flights per night over 2 nights with 12 people (plus some shared pours. The smaller number of pours than most commercial tastings made a huge difference as the wines evolved in the glass much more than most tastings I have attended. i made many new friends and enjoyed myself tremendously
We finished with a terrific 1983 Hospice de Beaune Meurseault Perrieres from Bernard de Bussier that i thought was buttery, gorgeous, fresh and powerful. some thought it too sauterne like, but I did not see that at all
This was a great two nights made even better by the format which gave us time with the wines to discuss as a group before the food came and by the addition of many had picked imported raw cheeses. The wines, the company and the food were al superb.
