Had a a couple bottles of a 1er Cru Chablis (Montmains, Closerie des Alisiers, Stephane Brocard) with a couple other people at dinner last night (already the 15th here). Clams a la Campania for starters and planked salmon covered with pepper jack during the baking process as the main. Vichysoisse and a salad, also a tarte tatin dessert with Calv... Read More
Among the sparklers, Jacquesson's GVS beat out the Schramsberg BdN, though I like both wines. Good comparison since the Jacquesson was 55% PN and 45% chard. Not a version that they produce any more, to my knowledge. I really like that house and used to drink cases and cases of it last decade, including that vintage. Zero chaptalization, extended...

Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More
Nebbiolo is a challenge to grow elsewhere, but that's because it's a challenge to grow anywhere, and it happens to have found a home in a place with very particular weather conditions. That's problem number one. It's a late ripener, so it has benefited by keeping the crop down to hasten ripening. While other wines are now overripe, Piemonte h... Read More

Also presiding were Eli Zabar and the US importer Michael Sku... Read More
Behaving decently since black Friday, but this really is the devil on my shoulder. Seems I've been able to eschew just about all wines priced significantly over $100, but this one still tempts me."Absolutely stunning in every respect" - 2013 Ponsot Clos de la Roche VV MagnumsPosted by Ian McFadden on November 25, 2015 Share| "This is also absolu...

Calling back to your indirect shot at Pinot Noir Mark, I think it's great that you've tried and tried different CA examples, but you really need to try a few good red burgundies before joining Greg and his opinion. In fact, I think his opinion on Pinot Noir is overplayed for effect, and better understood if you get the full picture, which I'll a... Read More
"Why certainly!Givry Clos de la Putin Overpowering nose of petrol and torrefaction. Much the same on the palate, with notes of Crimean cherries and horse sweat, with a finish that dissolves the fillings in your teeth. For a wine made in a chemical factory, it's not as bad as it could have been. In fact, it's the finest ever produced in that pla... Read More
