    Ipswich Beer festival this weekend, coupled with the Maritime Ipswich Festival - less than 5 minutes from the house, nice weather, and loads of Real Ale to try - sod the housework and gardening. Report to follow - if I can type.

    Been ‘drinking up’ some of the 2005 and 2006 Bordeaux:

    2006 Château Camail


    A Premières Côtes de Bordeaux. Château bottled. 12.5% ABV
    ~ £10 a bottle

    2006 was a difficult year producing wines of variable quality. This was one of the better ones. Excellent with lamb


    2006 Château Labourdette



    Château bottled. 12% ABV
    ~ £10 a bottle

    This Bordeaux is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet; having the sharp taste and the structured tannins of the Cabernet, with at the same time, the mellowness of the Merlot. Together, they create a lovely purple color and a nose of plums and tobacco. The taste is plummy with a touch of pepper and spearmint.”


    2005 Château Colombier – Monpelou Pauillac


    65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
    Château bottled. 13% ABV
    ~ £15 a bottle

    This estate neighbours Mouton Rothschild, overlooking Pauillac. I’m drinking a glass of this now: well balanced, fruity and powerful with subtle tannins. Excellent!

    They look very nice Barry, but not a patch on what we were drinking last week in Greece:



    12% ABV
    2.75 Euros for 1.5 litres!

    Yes - but drink too much of that and and what are the 'detox clinic' fees?

    Oh! - I'm sure as a self effacing "dry table wine", it was fine. It's the "1.5 litres for £2.40" that could have me drinking far too much.

    A votre santé
