Following my courses in Monash, we celebrated (!) by having a nice dinner at St Kilda, one of Melbourne beaches. The restaurant had an incredible collection of French wines, including a whole range of wines from the upper Rhône valley, like Côte Rotie, Saint Joseph (my favourite!), and Cornas. Those were however priced at three and even four digits (in dollars or Euros!), and we sampled instead the local version of those, which were truly pleasant (although too young and missing a few hours of oxygenation!)

A highly disappointing Saint-Joseph after the unbelievable Chante-Perdrix of last year… The poor design should have been a warning!
