My dinner with André

At Lantern with Cindy and André (yes he of the great Spanish whites). Enjoyed my pork belly entrée and my black cod plat quite a bit. Second good run in this restaurant.

2006 Karlsmühle Kaseler Nies'chen Riesling Kabinett
More clumsy and sweet than a previous bottle. Not sure what the deal was.

2003 Catherine et Pierre Breton Bourgueil Les Perrières
Another very good bottle of this. A bigger, bolder, more intense wine than the 2002. The Perrières seems to do very well in these warm vintages and I’m very bullish on this wine. It didn’t show as spectacularly as it had previously, but nothing seemed to be showing at its best tonight. It happens. This wine should be excellent for 20 years or more, and drink well for most of it.
