2000 Domaine Rene Engel Clos du Vougeot Vosne Romanee
Two amazing Burgundies tonight at home with my dad.
Both wines were seductively smooth with the older 2000 having a
fantastic farmyard aroma on rhe nise and a light cherry fruit
refreshing palate. Amazing for 10years old. Both good quality corks!
Check it out!

Chilean wines are very full flavoured and rich which I found goes well
Misiones Carmenere 2008
Valle Central, Chile
Deep violet in colour with a rich fruity nose and a toasted aroma. On
the palate lovely plum flavour with a medium body, touch of tannin and
a coffee like spicy oak element.
An excellent intense wine. A wine for a colder evening or evening in
which is just right for the end of the summer. Check it out
£6.49 down to £4.99 from Morrisons
