Welcome to Burgundy

Posted on: August 28th, 2004 by

I am in Nuits St George staying at the house of Nicholas Potel. Had a wonderful dinner of Beef Borgogne and a lovely Premier Cru red Burgundy. Then ate greatest cheese ever with more red Burgundy. Today went to Beaune and bought vin, fromage, paté and had a feast back at Potel’s. Drank a 1987 Cru Beajolais that was sublime. Spent the whole afternoon drinking stunning wine and eating, listening to Nick Drake, and having stunning Cru Beajolais…still great fruit, acidity…how can a CB still be alive after all these years???

Oh, yeah, bought it at a shop in Beaune for under 20 bucks. Holy shit! I love Burgundy. I am living the dream. Wish y’all could be here in Nuit St George spending an afternoon with me!!!
