Mike D's Article: A Delicious Half Bottle of Santenay
February 14th, 2011
(NEW YORK) I had a half bottle of 2006 Jean-Marc Morey Santenay La Comme Dessus last week at Momofuku Ssam Bar here in New York during a late and delicious lunch break from the studio. We are putting the finishing touches on a new album. Fortunately, we have been working closely with our esteemed colleague Mr. Zdar, so we have been sticking to his French work ethic of strong coffee and lengthy sit-down lunches.
The red Burgundy was really good actually, especially when you don’t expect much out of a restaurant half bottle. I can’t say the spicy cuisine did the wine any favors. But still, after properly cleansing the palate, this was surprisingly ready to rock — ripe fruits, earthy notes, even a little bit of refined funk. Elegant and restrained with well-balanced tension. 93 points.
