A week at Les Florets

Les Florets

Once again, the yearly trip to southern Rhone valley has ended. Another 3500 or so km on the list of distances we have driven to find the best wine in the world, and the best food regarding price / performance. It was the fifth time at Les Florets, and they have become even better.

Many of my friends have now also been there, and I think even more people should investigate this place.

The last dinner Thursday, with fois gras and melon sorbet, pidgeon, cheese, and variations of fruit. Accompanied with one of the best wine I have had so far: Domaine La Barroche Fiancée 2004. Yes, 2004, that is in general not  a very impressive year. A few year from now, it is time to check the 2007.
