Domaine Roux Pere et Fils Meursault Vieilles Vignes 2009

Five Days/Five Wines: Sunday 9th July

In the great scheme of things Waitrose being out of stock of fresh Tarragon is just a minor, trivial, insignificant, unimportant inconvenience. Shame the chap waiting alongside me for the 'weekender lad' to return from a warehouse forage for said Tarragon didn't realise this. The lad returned empty handed. Swearing, stomping, moaning to anything that would listen. I heard him bellowing to his wife from the other end of the store a good ten minutes later. All that anger over tarragon. Embarrassing. No wonder I generally dislike people. I wonder what his wife is like...

It might not be quite the same but I sprinkle dried tarragon in the Sunday one-pot chicken dish. Midsomer Murders is running in the background - "oh look that's Wallingford town hall..." "oh, isn't that the road into Ewelme..." "They've used the pub in Warborough... again" - Chicken thighs, browned shallots, garlic, wine and chicken stock, tarragon and bay leaf... later, just prior to serving and pressing play on the blu-ray player, Rodda's Crème Fraîche is stirred through the sauce.

As for the wine, something special is called for seeing as it's a Sunday. A Meursault.

A wine, retailing for twenty five quid is one that even a non-wine expert mentioned as being something a little special. Texturally interesting (tumbling fresh water gravel), herbed edges, decent length, pear and apple skins, weighty. Finesse. A lovely drop to accompany the Chicken.

My local Waitrose has been out of Vegimite for at least three weeks; now THAT is something to get steamed up about!

Domaine Roux Pere et Fils Meursault Vieilles Vignes, 2009, Burgundy, France [Adegga / Snooth] is another wine to be in the Bibendum Summer Sale. Normally £27.08 it will be reduced to £18.05 from the 19th July through to the 1st August.
