i’ll have to say i am really happy i got to try these wines
i haven’t been posting enough about wines i’m super excited about like i used to, and that is sort of why i started this blog. So to fix this here is what i drank last night. We had them with roasted goat.
Henri Gouges is one of those producers where i start thinking “not enough people make wines like these anymore” and then i realize that i have no idea what i’m talking about because i’m young and don’t have the wine knowledge going back far enough to know if that is the case or not but despite this i start feeling that i’m right anyway and that people don’t make wines like this anymore. Perhaps there is some sort of cultural memory i’m tapping into that tells me how great this very, very old school wine is. Or perhaps i’m full of shit, but honestly this is one of the best bottles of wine i’ve ever drank.
This producer doesn’t exist anymore but the wine was really great. 1988 Yvonne Febvre (not a typo) Chablis Grand Cru Blanchots. This may sound stupid and quite obvious, but i really enjoy older Chablis so i’m lucky to have friends who have cellars with the stuff in it.
Since this is a lazy post, listen to this. It’s a song that i really enjoyed when it came out, but i wasn’t sure i’d like it later. Turns out i still do:
