2007 Saint-Veran Domaine de la Feuillarde white Burgundy: Grapefruit.

march 7, 2010: this was an odd wine. we were expecting it to be more concentrated and developed given that it was a white burgundy. instead it was grapefruity, acidic and crisp. alan said this was a strange thing to say about a white burgundy, but he hadn't had this particular bottle. we paired it with two pompano we purchased at the newburgh schnucks. greg stuffed the gutted portions with rosemary, thyme and sage, and he covered it with butter and rock salt. then he baked it. the fish turned out very well ... it's called butterfish for a reason; it was thick and meaty, but also rich. this white burgundy was around 12.5 or 13 percent alcohol. about $16 at vecchio's italian market. it seems like a good, refreshing summer wine.
