The most recent installment of Tomato Pie Night was once again at Domaine Bobo and Burgundy was the main attraction. Our journey through the 2006 whites of Louis Latour continued with an excellent bottle of Batard-Montrachet. The wine was very rich and sexy. It was missing the minerals I find in the best examples from this vineyard, but was pretty tasty. Next up was Volnay, 1er Cru, Fremiets from Domaine Joseph Voillot. Jean Pierre-Charlot (winemaker at Voillot) crafts beautiful wines that are often fragrant and bright. Fremiets is usually the prettiest Volnay produced at this domaine and often shows well when young. The 2006 is a classic example of this wine was pretty yummy with the red pie. The disappointing part of the evening was the Rutgers football game that we had on in the background. Rutgers stadium is only a 30 minute drive north from our domaine, so we felt a profound sadness as North Carolina marched up and down the field. Rutgers may have lost in a blowout, but we washed away our disappointment with some terrific wines.
