The dinner, January 20th: The Wines - Château Haut-Claverie 2001

To the duck foi gras I will serve half a bottle of a good sauternes wine. The Chateau Haut-Claverie 2001 (120 NOK / €15) is less expensive than the Chateau Myrat (180 NOK / €25), but still it tastes great, with the sweetest aromas from tropical fruits.

For those of you that have not tasted a Sauternes wine - do! It is great with foi gras, as well as strong blue cheese like a roquefort or a stilton or as a dessert wine.

Enjoy!
