Also Presided over a Tour de France tasting @holmfirth where some fairly decent French wine & Champagne was given a spanking by Anglo stuff.
Then some very tasty ales from the local Nook brewery- Sprocket Fuel was an uncharacteristically hoppy & bitter 3.8% - & a snooze in't vines
Great racing, outrageously beautiful Pennines and near-hysteria on the verges allez! les rosbif and yorkshires.World Cup&wimbledon forgotten
Tour de France was a real blast. Yorkshire's passion, involvement & enthusiasm was awesome. Never seen so many excited tykes in my life.
Beautiful day. I'm off to Taste of London. Meet me at Discover The Origins if you feel like like a chinwag and a glass of something juicy.

Join Olly, Tim and I for @ThreeWineMen this summer. First up, London this weekend. ozclarke.com/?p=2267 See you there!
.. Canon is beautifully balanced, Gazin is both ripe and savoury, Branaire manages weight and freshness & Clos de l'Oratoire is a stunner.
And 2010? Well, they may be In a dumb patch, but they're not singing, and some are tasting a little overwrought and overworked. But ....
I still find something murky lurking in the heart of a lot of 2011s. Le Crock from St. Estephe was as good as any, Gazin was wild but plump
Branaire and Rauzan-Segla are also worth a punt in 2012 precisely because they didn't try too hard, but produced delightful,typical styles.
I wouldn't want the Pontet Canet 13 but the 2012 is excellent deep, restrained focussed, classic stuff, packed with dry ripe black fruit.
If I had to choose any 2013 right now I might go for the high acid but damson&cherry-scented La Mondotte or the refined, scented Branaire.
2011(cont).. Getting any more exciting. And is 2010 really as good as 2005? Or is there still an awful lot of wine to sell?Or R they sulking
2012 is going to have enough surprises for canny buyers to find a fair bit of light,fresh, focussed pleasure while 2011 shows no signs of...
2013 is clearly a problematic vintage and only those with the most delicate of touches and most ruthless of sorting tables have prospered...
Last week's Bordeaux Grand Cru tasting was a lot more than a casual stroll through an avenue of expensive delights. Nothing was clearcut.
