Wining and dining

While we've been at Dorrie's, I've been doing a fair bit of the cooking - and in return, she has very kindly allowed me to raid her cellar. In addition to the wines already mentioned, we've opened bottles of 1979 Chateau Chasse Spleen, 1988 Chateau Gloria and 1988 Chateau Meyney (magnum). On Christmas Eve, I cooked some duck breasts and we cracked a really lovely magnum of 1988 Chambolle Musigny, Charmes, and on our final night (26 December), I cooked a couple of lamb shoulders and we polished off a magnum of 1979 Chateau Mouton Rothschild (which was a bit of a let down if I'm honest). All in all, we had a wonderful time and I'm extremely grateful to Dorrie for sharing all of those great old wines with us.
