POLKA DOT: Pellizotti
LANTERNE ROUGE: Yauheni Hutarovich
WINE: M. Chapoutier Petite Ruche
NOTES: Wine Spectator – 90 points! Polished, but not overly so, with a briary tug helping to define the blackberry, crushed plum, graphite and licorice notes. The long finish has a nice mix of fruit and iron. Drink now through 2011.
COMMENTS: This wine tastes as great as it should, given that it was the priciest bottle of our tour.
