What we drank in early December

Starting as always with whites and rosés, this fortnight inccluded a Durban white (mainly viognier) from one of our favourite domaines perched high in the Dentelles de Montmirail above Beaumes de Venise, and Didier Cornillon's Châtillon rosé from our favourite produceer in the Drôme - plus several generall delicious bottles brought by friends (and as always, shared with them)

Reds from our cellar included another delicious Brouilly from our favourite Domaine les Roches Bleues near Odenas, some Chilean pinot bought through the Wine Society, a still excellent Jacuss Refoxco from the Friuli area of NE Italy bought there on a visit to our friends John and Mary a few years ago, a good 2003 Mas du Theyron from the nearby village of St Christol and a Guinand Plaisir du Sud from the same village.

Sweet and sparkling wines included some Limoux brut brough by one of our Tuesday conversation class, a sweet Malaga moscati which we bouoght at a modest price on a trip to Granada earlier this year, some of Didier Cornillon's fine Florilège Clairette de Die and a Guinand Cartagène.  The Glenfiddich and the Napoleon cognac were the ends of bottles consumed over some months!
