I am proud to say that everything went according to plan.
The Turkey was moist and delicious, the roast spuds nicely roasted, the Sprouts just right, and the accompanying sauce; saucy. And what lady could resist my stuffing!
However; the expensive Pécharmant wine was total rubbish. It cost me about €10 (expensive for here), and frankly tasted like a €2 bottle of cooking plonk.
So, shame on you 'Domaine de la Réfrénie', I shall not be buying your wine again, and I wouldn't mind even asking for my money back!
It was abandoned after the first sip, and a delicious (gold medal winning) Bordeaux 'Mission St Vincent 2012' consumed in its stead (about €4).
Any disasters at your end?
