2005 Chateau de La Chaize Bruilly ($8.99 NH Liq Store). Alcohol level: 13%/

It had survived in good style. Have seen some negative remarks on this one, but maybe it just needs some age. It gave nice red fruit including berries and cherries on the nose and upfront. There was more fruit in the reasonably complex middle with no sign of fading. There was a refreshing finish.

Matched it with seasoned burgers, grilled over charcoal and mesquite smoke. With the Brouilly and some corn on the cob, it made for a nice Thursday night.

I've liked this Brouilly a lot in the past. Will look for the recent releases.

We popped a 2006 tonight. It was $15.99 at Whole Foods (a.k.a. whole paycheck), which is quite a jump from our last bottle.

It is much the same in taste and enjoyment as the '05. Matched it with grilled Salisbury steak, corn-on-the-cob, and zucchine & onions. Nice dinner.
