Keep your Santenay for 20 years – July 13th

If you happen to have some 1997 Domaine Guy Duflouleur Santenay ‘Clos Genets’, I would suggest leaving it for another 5 years yet.

At 13 years in bottle, this wine is still very youthful and when first opened quite primary and nervy in acidity, breathing out nicely over half an hour or so to reveal more generosity in fruit and texture, although accented on red currant and red cherry with a lingering sweetness and spicy, aniseed farewell.

Incredible really, a humble appellation of Santenay looking like it will cruise up to 20 years, and beyond… Ah, don’t you just love pinot noir.

Chinese Lacquered Duck Shanghai style - These ducks came from Carrefour market here in Pudong, at the Thumb Plaza, the kitchen run by an awesome woman and it just goes to show, how great food and especially duck can be in gentle hands; we have been back three times for the dame duck… the only issue is the thinness of the breasts however the juice that runs out of them when I remove the skewer is amazing in itself.
