2011 Clos de Mez Fleurie La Dot tonight. Pure cherry juice, baking soda and violets. I know @grapeylyle is thinking I am nuts for opening this tonight, but it is 100% open for business. I am going to roast some broccoli rabe and butternut squash to go alongside some hearty German Bratwurst with this. What a great wine foe the money.
