NE Clam Chowder with 1er Cru Chassagne

Last night’s supper on a snowy evening was New England Clam Chowder with a 1999 Vincent Girardin 1er Cru Chassagne-Montrachet ‘Clos de la Truffiere’ - Cork saturated about a quarter of the way up; medium yellow gold in color; no sign of premox in rich, spicy white and yellow fruit nose and flavors; barely adequate acidity; and a long spicy fruit finish. it was very enjoyable with the chowder.

We’re experiencing temps in the mid 70s. Jealous?

I like Vinnie G. Montrachets though they are decidedly modern in style.

Nice notes Dick.

No, we’re not jealous. I love snow; after I left home and went to SoCal for college; I never got over being homesick for four seasons (SoCal only has two).

That’s why we bought our home in Santa Fe in 1989, We came here all year round, to enjoy Santa Fe in all four seasons. When it was time to back off to one home, it wasn’t much of a decision to choose Santa Fe. We’ve been very happy here for over five years, through all the seasons.
