There was supposed to be a transit strike (again) in Paris and I am sweating it out. Will I get to the airport or not? Cliff hanger. (no strike, but northeast 'weather' put me on an early flight.) Meanwhile, upon arrival in Paris after Burgundy I ate at the Le Dirigeable in the 15th. Don't go unless you have to or you are in the neighborhood. Food is actually great, and so is the wine list, but noisy, lousy atmosphere, and service and the cheese was cold. Oh, don't I sound cranky? Yes. The one great thing was the 2006 Pacalet Bourgogne, even more delicious after it was open for a while (needed a decanter we couldn't get) And if someone finds out which Domaine in Chambolle (de Vogue?) run by either one woman or two sisters, is truly up for sale, drop me a line? Maybe we can all chip in for the supposed 40 million euro price tag and join the foreign rush to buy a fancy domaine. Off to Pierre Jancou's Racines to drink.
