It's Christmas Day, and once again one of our MNSC boys chose to host a dinner on his birthday - his last as a thirtysomething. With no other halves present this year, the bunch of us took a smaller function room at the I Hate the Handover Club.
The menu this year was very, very simple - which was fine because, naturally, the focus tonight was on the wines.
Yes, I had a second serving. Why the hell not?!
But the wines! Our host, once again, was more than generous...
I was criticized by the host for being stingy on scoring some of the wines tonight, but I can't believe that I gave a 100-point score to one of the wines - a very, very rare occurrence. In retrospect, it's not too surprising that I gave it to Ducru, since it was the first château I fell in love with. Very thankful to our generous host!
