Tom King reports:
We had a very good evening last night with upstairs full of many loyal RSJ customers.
I attach the menu and wines.
The 2008 Anjou Villages from Vincent Ogereau surprised Nigel and I about how well it was showing. I pulled the corks in the morning and the additional breathing time had certainly done it a favour as it was lovely and rounded with a really nice concentration.
The 1986 Clos de L'Echo was from magnums and was very good - lovely mature Chinon with life still ahead.
