Down the long highway of life I finally reached 'Route 66' on March 20th.
As one German singer sang ' at 66 years-old...life begins'!
Great. I'll get quicker at soccer every Sunday and score hat-tricks at will!
To celebrate I ordered a table at our local Bistro...we were nine people...6 of whom were wine-drinkers. I had planned some good wines...not needing much discussion as it would be a little loud when my 3 daughter get together.
8am...good friend Volker and wife called. Throat infection...can't come.
9am...Daughter and Husband Jochen called...stomach problems.
Our other daughter had a dentist appointment and called early afternoon to say she also had a stomach problem.
A change of the planned wines....only Robert and myself who partake of the grape...so I decided we would just drink, enjoy and not make notes.
Two wines that have impressed recently....
Limited 111 Sauvignon Blanc 2008
It was wonderful....and purchased under € 30,-- Find me a better Sauvignon Blanc than this.
Robert, who does not freely give high marks...awarded this wine 18.25
Maximus Pinot Noir 2008
As good as the bottle tasted a month ago...with the soft marzipan feel to is...and grainy tannins
After the dropping of all the guests like flies...the table of 4 enjoyed a fine evening.
