I don’t mean literally. I mean putting away your wine for another time or so or even years. Now here is the dilemma. Should I invest in an award winning wine to lay down for the future. Not necessarily for financial gain but to allow the wine to age and become somewhat more refined. Its from a newish appellation so there is some sense in this and the wine has already gained some considerable destinction by winning some notable awards. It is already a wine that can be drunk now and that is what I am doing but I feel the depth in the wine will merit some time for aging which will bring out the best.
Me thinks I will and I may well decide to purchase a large quantity for you to savour by buying through Grainger Fine Wines but also for my own enjoyment. Here’s to you. How much have I had tonight?
Almost forgot to tell you. Its from Domaine de L’Enchantoir appellation Saumur Puy Notre Dame 2009 vintage. A gold medal winner in Angers and Paris. Only the best.
Tomorrow we will be visiting Pierre and Brigitte Van Den Boom at L’Enchantoir to discuss the current process on the 2010 wines and to taste the new vintages. Obviously we will keep you up to date on the 2010 vintage which we reckon will be on par with 2009. We shall see. It will be interesting to see if the new Puy Notre Dame will be as exciting as the 2009 for which Pierre achieved a gold medal at Angers and a silver medal in Paris. An incredible achievement in anybody’s book and particularly for Pierre and Brigitte as this was only their second vintage at the domaine.
