Occasionally, it happens: a bad run of corked wines. This is, if I recall correctly, the third time I’ve hit three in a row. Certainly I’m due some sort of karmic payback at this point. (But if people wonder why I’m so vociferously pro-screwcap…well, here you go…)
Cinquin “Domaine des Braves” 2002 Régnié (Beaujolais) – Corked.
Cinquin “Domaine des Braves” 2002 Régnié (Beaujolais) – 2nd bottle. Corked.
Raymond Quenard 2004 Chignin Mondeuse (Savoie) – Corked.
Producteurs Plaimont “Les Vignes Retrouvées” 2004 Côtes de Saint-Mont (Southwest France) – Fresh-cut melon and dried clay. Simple, direct and pure, not to mention a fine bargain.
