So Chic, So Listrac: Fourcas Hosten

The Bordelais have always been the epitome of chic – in the way they carry themselves, in their deportment, in how they dress irrespective of age. They cannot countenance shabbiness. Perhaps at home they slob around in tatty jogging bottoms and flip-flops, but the boulevards of Bordeaux are a veritable crisscross of catwalks and luxury boutiques. Perhaps then, it is unsurprising that fashion houses have been lured to Bordeaux and acquired some its most famous châteaux.

2019 Marqués de Cáceres Albariño Deusa Nai (19.00) 91

2019 Marqués de Cáceres Albariño Deusa Nai, 91 points

This 2019 Albariño displays high-pitched citrus fruit, quinine and chalky mineral qualities. Lively and precise in the mouth, it shows firm tension to the lime zest, quince and honeysuckle flavors. Takes on a deeper pear note with air and closes long and nervy. A hint of spicy ginger adds bite. (JR)

1971 Domaine Bonneau du Martray Corton Grand Cru

Continuing my quest to taste every wine from my birth-year, I took a bottle of 1971 Corton Grand Cru from Domaine Bonneau du Martray to a La Paulée back in the days when people could crowd into an enclosed space without masks, share bottles and sing meaningless songs at the top of their voices.
