Society Médoc 2003

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

Just a very quick one tonight on a nice Médoc.  This is yet another very impressive effort from the Wine Society’s own brand.

Shaken not stirred.  Society Medoc 2003, atop a washing machine….for some reason.

At first it was slightly thin but opened up quickly to a smooth Crème brûlée flavour.  Haven’t I tasted this somewhere before?

If you haven’t yet sampled the Wine Society‘s own brand wines I commend you to do so.  If you are not a member or you don’t know anyone who is, then look out for one of the joining offers they occasionally put out.

Dining in a bygone era

Staying at the Headland Hotel on Fistral Beach in Newquay you have to just sit and imagine how grand it must have been when first built.  The Edwardians must have enjoyed travelling from London and judging by the elegance of the dining room they dressed for dinner.  They probably dressed for surfing I suspect….

We didn’t exactly dress for dinner but we did feel compelled to look fairly smart.
