Damaged goods

DSC_7860


A trio of pinot noirs, one Niagara, two Burgundy . . . beautiful, no? Alas, it was not to be. Trying to repeat an exercise I did last year, just not as successful. Didn't have the mood for it, I guess, nor the leisure bliss of slowly drinking late into the night.

The bottle on the right, the Domaine Fleurot Nuits-Saint-Georges was heat-damaged. Reeking of melted rubber and oil, just completely nauseating. Too bad, as it was the most expensive out of the three.

Maybe I'll try this again in a year. After all the excesses of the holidays, its time to scale back in a big way. Back to drinking $15 bottles, and sparingly at that.
