At Christmas we always make standing rib roast for our dinner. Almost every year this means a Cabernet to match with the meal. Sometimes it’s from California, other times from Chile, but most times it’s from Bordeaux.
This year’s choice is a ChÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢teau Camensac 1995 that I have been cellaring for a few years. I can almost smell the pencil lead now… hope it’s not corked 😉
So how was it?
My ‘special bottle’ was, in fact, corked. Bring on the screwcaps!
Very nice, Lenn; elegant with outstanding balance. A solid 89. You would love it.
My full notes will be posted later tonight as I enjoy the final (half) glass or so.
