Washington DC - Cafe 15
Tasted Thursday, December 28, 2006 by lars1014 with 581 views
Visiting Washington DC with my family, I made up for a lost opportunity with the DC crowd earlier in the fall. The food was good, service was excellent, no Burgundy glasses (too bad), and the camaraderie the best. The great characters in DC coupled with their generosity made for an incredible evening. Attendees included: Christopher Larson, Kenneth Brown, Kevin Shin, Ben Andersen, D. Zimmerman, Don Thomas, and Gence Alton
The Calera did not fool anyone, but was pleasant. The two winners in this flight were the 1996 DRC Romanee St. Vivant and the 1995 Leroy VR Les Beaux Monts. These were quintessential examples of what great Burgundy can be.
The head to head between the Leroy Clos Vougeots was worth the price of entry. No one was disappointed at the table. I have not had lots of Tibault wines, but the two examples I had this night were not very encouraging.
Thanks to everyone who participated! Thanks for letting me crash in on your excellent group.
