About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

The views expressed on this post are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of Netnod or any other of the organisations I have connections to.

Domaine La Fagotière, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 2004, red

This wine from the not so perfect year 2004 is good. Not excellent, but good wine. Some fresh grass, but long sharp body that leaves memories. Interestingly enough it had more young tannins left than I expected. They do claim their goal is to create this older style wine that demands a lot from the drinker. (+)

The image to the right is the (old) label from the 2006 wine, not the one I tasted, as that bottle had no label.

When checking the wine, I also got a bottle for free, but for that to be more interesting, they (compared to some other wineries I got extra wine from) labeled it.
