There was little doubt about the top wine at the Lobster Fest below, a 2006 William Fevre Chablis Grand Cru Bougros. 

The wine was very closed up at the beginning but with some swirling some crisp apple and citrus peel finally showed up.  Beautiful, pale young color.  Totally crisp with acid and minerals and a deep taste of ripe citrus and crisp stone fruits.  The finish was all about munching on oyster shells, crisp and almost salty.  This wine is still very young but it was absolutely delicious with the lobster.  There was just a light bit of smoke in the lobster meat from the grill and the minerality of the wine was a perfect match for that smoky taste.  Superb wine.

This blog started as and basically remains just a way for me to keep track of what I drink and eat and to share that info with friends who always seem to ask.  It's still amazing to me that other folks read this, and that's a definite bonus.  This is post #400 over the last 3+years and since there's more wine in the cellar there's likely to be 400 more posts.

Off today to visit local wineries who are releasing there latest wines this weekend.

Well done one the 400 notes and also the blog re design. I tend to read via RSS, so missed the pretty back ground image.
