Blind Food and Wine Pairing Dinner: (Peter & Sandra's): Blind dinner Anita: Medium cherry-ruby color; dusty earth, tea, cherry, tart raspberry, violet, touch cinnamon; mouth is intense, mixed concentrated red berries of red cherry, pomegranate, blackberry; lots of stony minerals, iron, and fern and light forest element (nettles?); massive structure with high acidity, lots of tannin, powerful fruit with iron; long tangy tart finish; even still, seems a bit closed and youthful. 92-93. This was a bit too acidic, and tannic for the sweetbread schnitzel (very succulent and creamy meat) with lingonberry sauce. A fleshier, softer wine worked better.

(Potel Nicolas Nuits St.Georges Les Murgers) This vineyard sits close to ‘Richemone’ from 45 year-old vines. Much more ebullient nose, just an edge of malo to be found but this is wide and interesting. Also very fine tannin and intense concentration. It’s hard to hold in the mouth and has super acidity. Just a little oak-derived texture on the good finish. A wine that impresses.
