A great lineup of Loire wines. The 1982 Chinon was the star of the evening

An unbelievable evening of Tempier tasting!

Very nicely kept Bordeaux. Still has a great smell!

A very nice Jurançon. Not too sweet, just enough to be great with some foie gras

An evening of wine tasting with friends without any particular theme other than each one brought a wine they liked and wanted to share with the group. 

We tasted two Chardonnay wines from 2009: a French one and a California one. No surprise in how different these wines are.

Le Rosé de Régis Boucabeille 2009
A very impressive rosé wine with a lot of flavors and taste. Not the typical “light” summer rosé

Antoine Arena, Cuvee Lisandra 2006
Finally opened this bottle of Corsican wine that I had been saving for a couple years. It is very different from any other Corsican wine I have had before. It had aged well (when usually wines form that region are to be enjoyed within a year or two) and was very nice on a seafood risotto. There is a nice blog post about Antoine Arena, you can read it here.
