Following our blowout Insignia vertical tasting on Saturday, we gave our livers a few hours of rest and gathered at my house for a Sunday afternoon dinner. The (loose) theme was Burgundy. In attendance were George Kautzman, Dave Dalluge, Chris Larson, Brad England, Chris Palm, Jeff Samusleon, Craig Vanderah, my wife Jennie (food only, 8 months pregnant!), and me. We hung out for several hours, cooking, watching football, and listening to blues music. I made cedar planked salmon and wild rice, and Dave Dalluge contributed several terrific dishes, including butternut squash soup, Parmesean cheese crisps, Gruyere cheese gougeres, and pistachio/flourless chocolate tarts. Chris Larson brought a cheese assortment and made a mushroom dish. A very fun, low-key afternoon and a great way to end our weekend of bacchanalia.
The 2004 Leroys showed really well. My WOTN was the 2004 Leroy Vosne-Romanee. The 80 Vogue Musigny was a real treat too.
