An evening to remember.

2018 Tibouren, Clos Cibonne Rose:
Beautiful Provenance rose; dry, flavorful and balanced. Very easy to drink.

2015 Vincent Girardin, St. Aubin, En Remilly:
Solid Chardonnay and nothing to sneeze at but, also, nothing to get excited about.

2013 Raveneau, Chablis Montee de Tonnerre:
Tremendous wine; exciting, riveting and a finish that goes forever; a life list wine. Oh my!

1988 Lytton Springs, Lytton Springs Zinfandel:
32 year old claret.
Make that 32 year old great claret.

2005 Bruno Clavelier, Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts:
Youthful but beginning to show its pedigree. Nothing wrong with drinking it now (can I get an amen) but miles to go before it sleeps.

2010 Chateau Beaucastel, CdP:
A wine that seldom grabs me, except this time. Quite the elegant and deep showing. Everything in its place, no sign of Brett and wonderful textures.

All served with tomato salad, stuffed squash blossoms and chanterelle risotto.
Finest kind.

Best, jim
