After a week which included Domaine de al Romanée-Conti, amongst other things, it was with some “oh what the hell” moxie that we cracked into a bottle of well aged white Burgundy.  Louis Jadot 1991 “Le Montrachet” in fact.  Upon opening, it smelled promising, but upon tasting it was only okay.  By the time we got to dinner and paired it up with some roasted Halibut, however, it really came alive.  I was reminded once again why classic whites pair well with seafood.  Some adages continue to hold true time and again I suppose.

Louis Jadot 1991 ” Le Montrachet”

A nice bottle of classic white Burgundy that has come through in fine form; the 1991 Jadot “Le Montrachet” remains somewhat youthful and classic with a nose of lightly toasted wood, lemon pie, and almond skin.  It is not overwhelming at all; it is aged and classic and it really shows well with food.  We paired it with crusted seared Halibut and it came alive.  What a fantastic match; I guess the classic white wine with seafood pairing holds true yet again.  It really speaks to drinking fine wines with good food.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
