Mouton Rothschild La Turque Montrachet Sassicaia..

..just to mention a few. Last friday we tried them all at Børsen, in the central part of CPH. An absolute terrific event. This post make no justice for all the wonderful wines we tested. However, there were also some cheap and affordable wines which gave showed great potential.

Condando de Haza 2005
Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero at its most drink-friendly expression. Vanilla, creamy, soft tannins with a great structure. Even to drink right now. Price set at 99dkk/bottle during the event.

Amayna 2008
A Sauvignon blanc from Chile with very rich nose of edler flowers, honey, salty, and wellbalanced, medium creamy taste. Absolutely all 80dkk/bottle worth for every sip.

Even tough it may sound impossible to outshine the whelm of superior wines from Bordeaux and Super tuscans, one did it. Montrachet! Never in my life has white wine been so delicate, rich, fresh, balanced. We tried the Puligny-Montrachet 2002 1. Cru Clos Mouchere Domaine Boillot once, moved on, came back and tried twice and lastly left the arrangement with the taste of the faboulus wine in our minds.
