7-30 - Opened and decanted. Smells nice.
9-00 - Our movie tonight is Valkyrie, a Tom Cruise pic. The wine has started well, some nice complexity, acidity and some tannins. The movie too is promising, Bryan Singer has made some cracking movies over the years and even though we know how the story ends he still manages to generate tension.
10-00 - The wine is still holding up well and we have added some creamy M&S stilton to the mix. It is getting a little drier and more tannic as the night wears off (the wine that is). Herself reckons the movie is "bitty". I disagree, the tension is ramping up and there is a wonderful cast of mostly British thesps.
10-30 - The Gigondas (btw - what is the correct pronunciation of Gigondas?), is about to be gone, and very tasty it was too. Would I buy more? Perhaps, for about the smae money you can get the Tesco or Lidl Vacqueyras which are a bit nicer. The movie is also finishing up, It turned out to be better than I expected.
