  • That flatter(closeder)-at-first phenomenon is something common across most every French region. That's why I'm always taken aback when people open a French bottle--whether from the Rhone or Burgundy or Bordeaux or anywhere else--taste it within a few minutes, talk about how basically boring it is and then gravitate towards the CA wines and assig...

  • But comrades, the northern Rhone has always been very good as many of you intimate; however, as people discover "undiscovered" wines (read cheaper, unpronounceable, appellations that evoke the Crisis of the 3rd Century in Rome - or perhaps, the spread of certain heresies of the early Mother Church, or something more "exotic" like the Mistral) th...

  • St. Joseph can be incredibly tasty, and it can pair well with some things that weightier N. Rhones don't, but I think it will never have a ton of cachet because the area is larger and has expanded into some dicey vineyard land.  I also don't think of it as a wine that is going to gain a lot with age, but I'm open to being converted.  C-H is also...

  • "Complexity is generally used to characterize something with many parts where those parts interact with each other in multiple ways."  Know that well, NG, in so many contexts.It was that kind of week this week. Now over. Friday night here, just got back from a couple days in Fukushima, battling with city bureaucrats to release funding for kinder... Read More

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

Good of you to shout about it, OT. Now here's another offer at least as interesting... Northern Piedmont Knockout!Sometimes we get lucky, and find a great deal – fewer times we get extremely lucky and we find a great deal from one of a small...

  • "Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Rhone misses Burgundy, but it does run through the fabulous Rhone region, home of the Northern Rhone (Syrah and Viognier) and the Southern Rhone (blends, mostly)."Technically correct, but the Saone, which gives the 'Cote d'Or' its cotes while it runs through Burgundy is really just one of the major f...

  • Darrin Vogler is about to take the "Snarky in a nice way" title from OT. I'm hoping to build a real cellar soon, too, but there are pix of my ad hoc arrangement scattered about here.  Of course, that was when I had 100 bottles fewer.  Yikes.  I do recommend that you use CellarTracker to keep track of things.  I use it in classic mode because I d...
