  • Emark - you're right to a large extent, and there's a LOT of swill in Europe. But the advantage they have is that in many cases, they've been farming the same land and making wine for generations. Then you get an energetic importer who finds a co-op and helps them tweak their wine. Suddenly it's pretty good and their price point isn't covering l... Read More

  • Sounds like storage was good for all. Did everyone else provide a few bottles each as you did? Any info about how they've acquired and stored the bottles? Always worrisome when you see labels like the Faively's, but then I've had TBAs, etc. from the Mosel and Rhein with far worse labels that were in great shape after 50 years--they just were sto...

  • Yep, you're right DM - I left out fishing! Fishing was my favorite pastime throughout my teens and I'm just now picking it up again - after 30 years!  I can't believe how light the reels and rods have gotten!But back to wine and yes California, particularly in the Central Coast, gets little precipitation.  Many vineyards out there remain dry-far...

  • Utter, unmitigated rubbish, not to put too fine a point on it.Chablis has been a hotbed of oak vs steel controversy for three decades now (notice that's only the tip of the iceberg in historical terms for the region--before that, plenty of oak). Major figures lead the attack from both sides of the divide, trying to make names for themselves. At ... Read More

  • Glad you have your priorities straight, DGC!I've encountered this, too, on and off over the years. Not common, but common enough to remember clearly and recognize quickly after multiple occurrences. Have had it from wines of South America, Eastern Europe, North Africa and off-locations like India and other parts of Asia (from Near East over to E... Read More

  • I was just thinking it was about time we heard from you Red ; )Beajolais and Gamay go together hand in hand. That is to say, all the red wine grown in the region of Beajolais, which is 3-4 hours by car South East of Paris, France, is made using 100% Gamay, and 99% of all wine from there is red! So basically Gamay has a monopoly in that region, a... Read More

  • " but the idea of some pan-Italian red sauce restaurant wouldn't really have existed and no one would have said, "It's so authentic they ask if you want white or red sauce with your clams/mussels."Richard - not true at all. The Italians themselves, at least those I knew, spoke of themselves as being from Naples, Rome, Sicily, etc. But to non-Ita... Read More

  • I refreshed my memory on Lichine, after it had gathered cobwebs for a couple of decades. I thought I'd remembered two trends that he helped establish which have greatly affected our wine consumption behavior.First of all, he established the first wine-tasting room at a winery, at Prieuré-Lichine back in the early 50s. No one had apparently allow... Read More
