The one, solitary bike mile is because it was tipping it down on Wednesday so I didn't ride into work. I was determined to have at least one ride a week, so this is a measly cycle into Waitrose!
Winewise, we drank pretty well to compensate for the hard work, including a silky-smooth Volnay vielles vignes (old vines) by Potel from the 2005 vintage (not widely available) - just a simple villages burgundy, but for all that a pleasure to drink, all straberry fruit and earthy chunkiness. Also a rather toothsome bottle of Oyster Bay Pinot Noir 2009 (Waitrose, Majestic £9.99) which was elegant cool climate pinot noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavourful with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and gentle sweet fruit tannins - good stucture, ood length, perfect for something mid-weight like chicken, omelette, duck, asian food - that sort of thing. And, the weekend was also punctuated with the odd glass of Hidalgo's La Gitana Manzanilla (Waitrose £6.99) - just fresh, salty, and marvellous with some dolmades from Romsey market. So it was not all work work work you see..)
