I had a great weekend as my friend Javier Murúa from Spain came to visit me here in Castillon.

Javier is the winemaker for his family estate Bodegas Muriel. One of the wines they are responsible is the Barón de Barbón – by far the most popular Rioja we sell.

Javier brought along many of his wines and we had a nice informal tasting at my house then we went for a bite to eat at the L’Envers du Décor is St.Emilion where Javier treated us to a most superb 2004 Flor de Pingus from Peter Sisseck’s Dominio de Pingus bodega in the Spanish DOC of Ribera del Duero. It was superb!

Getting the 2009 VC and CY wines ready for bottling today at the Chai and the builders seem to be in full swing already.
