Thanksgiving Day Special 2017 – Episode #389

Mark is back with his annual Thanksgiving Day Special after skipping last year. Honestly, I forgot I didn’t do one. Mark does 3 wines he purchased from SommSelect. He bought a Thanksgiving Day 6-pack from them, but is breaking up the 6 pack in to two sets of 3. One for Thanksgiving and the other for Christmas. First up is the 2012 Dirler-Cade, “Belzbrunnen,” Riesling. Next is the 2015 Domaine Delarche, Pernand-Vergelesses “Les Combottes.” Finally Mark reviews the 2014 Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot, Passetoutgrain AOP. Just a correction to what he said as far as the proportions for the third wine, he said it was a 50/50-mix of Pinot Noir and Gamay. At the time he was pretty sure that wasn’t correct, but he got that info from a merchant website for the wine. The SommSelect tasting notes state 2/3 Pinot Noir and 1/3 Gamay. Both information is for the same wine and vintage. I’d tend to trust a Master Sommelier over someone else however.
