WCC BLIND TASTING OF GRAND CRU RED BURGUNDY
at the Fort Orange Club, Albany, NY (12/10/2009)

Tasting was all blind to me since I didn't bring any wine. (I traded.) I only knew that all wines were supposed to be Grand Cru Red Burgundy. Turned out they were (i.e. no ringers).

Flight 1

Grilled Vermont Quail with wild rice, dried fruit, chèvre timbale, and orange-thyme scented au jus.
