  • The opening paragraph of Thomas Buckley’s May 29 article in Bloomberg Business tells the story quite well:  “A bottle of one of the world’s rarest wines sold for $18,000 at a London auction Thursday. There’s just one problem – it may be undrinkable.”The wine in question, sold at a Bonhams auction house, is a Chateau Mouton Rothschild from 1945. ... Read More

  • It was an Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino from the 2006 vintage. I’d looked forward to opening it for eons. Critic James Suckling said to lay it down until at least 2014. Finally, a worthy occasion presented itself: Summer Solstice, 2015. It was time to open the bottle. What would nine years of age have to say?  I’ll tell you what it had to s... Read More

Now, there is yet another traditional wine packaging assailant on the scene.New World countries like New Zealand and Australia are already using PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic wine bott...

  • Few things better represent the art of winemaking more than the image of oak wine barrel racks inside a picturesque château, as they lovingly age the sweet juices that will one day be poured into our glasses. It’s an Old World image that reminds us to respect the timeless task of winemaking. While there are many types of wood barrels in which wi... Read More

  • Thanks a lot, guys.  The consensus I'm seeing from this site - as well as over on - is that the leakage happened in transit, but that it was likely due to jostling/shaking (and possibly a brittle cork) - but not from heat.  The indented cork seems to indicate this, right? (Thanks for your insight on both forums, Greg)The vendo... Read More

  •  It's possible that the cork was less than ideal and the seller didn't know, particularly if the wine was undisturbed for some time, or upright. When the bottle was thrown around during shipping and handling, and perhaps even shipped upside down for a while, that might have been the catalyst or it might have simply allowed wine to flow that was ...

  • Thanks a lot, Mark!  I checked the styrofoam shipping container this afternoon, and it seems pretty clear that the leakage occurred during shipping (CA to KY).  Does the depressed cork, the pattern of leakage in the container and on the label, and the fact that this seems to have happened in the past few days tell you anything?  Heat damage?  Sh...
