September wines

Summer temperatures continued yet for another month which meant plenty of rosé wines and light summer food. And not to forget summer clothes. I don’t think I put on socks until the second half of the month.

The highlight of the month was of course TheMan’s and my 3 year anniversary. Unbelievable that it has been 3 years already. 3 years since a walk by the sea, followed by a glass of Taittinger Brut Réserve, a glass of Australian Riesling from Tim Addams and a bottle of Château Mont-Redon Châteauneuf-du-Pape. I’m no doubt a true wine geek remembering all this… And in those three years we have managed to visit both Taittinger and Château Mont Redon. A visit to Tim Adams requires some more travelling, but you never know…

As anniversary dinner this year we stayed true to our first dinner and the Rhone Valley with having a very nice bottle of Croezes Hermitage from E. Guigal. Blackberries, cherries and violets in an excellent mix of pepper and herbs.
