Michael Feuerstein, the one-man side show of Pas Mal wines, came by the restaurant Friday with a few samples. He’s another one who focuses solely on French wine, especially Burgundy. Some people get Burgundy in their blood and nothing else will really do. I tasted one 2004 red burgundy, two 2005s, a Vouvray and pilgrimage in a bottle from the Rhone Valley.
2005 Burgundies, where it was a very good year, are starting to sell out and many are drinking very well right now, so are the 2004s, a lesser year.
On the roster were Les Vins de Vienne Reméage Blanc NV, Maison Merieau 2005 “La Fleuve Blanc,” Vouvray, Domaine Clos Solomon 2004 Givry 1er Cru “Clos Solomon” and Domaine Compete Senard 2005 Aloxe Corton.
