Two Old Journal Entries from 1993
In cleaning out a room in our basement, that was to become a wine room but became a wine & everything-else room, I came across two of my journals from the 1990s. I have only found two entries related to wine from my Bristol days outside of the tasting notes I wrote at the official Bristol Wine Circle tastings . Here is the first entry.
5 January 1993
At the Museum, Musee-Galerie de la Sieta. There is a wine shop run by a middle-aged woman with horrible teeth (dark, crooked) a 1978 Pommard for FF 170. Nicolas is a chain store that stocks a fair array of wines.
N.B. Buy the Bordeaux book and a vintage chart.
Upon return to Bristol I did purchase David Peppercorn’s “Bordeaux” for 15 Pounds Sterling from Georges. A bit more interesting are my tasting notes from one of our wine dinners. You may find this second entry here:
