Leftover Loves

How I have to suffer....leftovers....
same as the night before (Veal Schnitzel)..which was fine by me..
but my wife decided I would get a
starter this time round.
The other leftover was the Meyer-Näkel Spätburgunder from the previous evening (bottle well corked and in the cellar) so I decided to drink a white with the starter. Courgettes,Fennel, Red and Yellow Paprikas with an Octopus Salad.
Looks good, tastes good..and by golly..it does ya good!




Blanc de Roc d'Anglade 2005
Remy Pedrano,
Anglade, France
A vineyard near to Nimes...Chenin Blanc (grape grown mainly in the Loire) & Grenache Blanc..
spends it's youth in used oak barrels;

medium yellow; mineral aromas..developed with airing..filled out; quite full-bodied. soft acidity with the gentle fruit of the Chenin Blanc, soft texture with a freshness, lovely long finish..plenty of character..needs airing..decant if you have time.
Points 17


PS..The Spätburgunder fron Meyer-Näkel was still excellent 24 hours after opening..always a good sign.
