  • D - it's a whole other topic how those wines have evolved, changed, etc. I have to say, I haven't followed enough to opine. Clearly something to learn about!As far as Chile goes, I think they had marketing problems in the US. There were a lot of wines imported because they were made from the pop grapes like Cab Sauv, Merlot, etc. But maybe the p... Read More

  • Look here on Snooth and you will find several Muscadet wines.I suggest that you go for Muscadet 'sur lie' wines as they have rested on the lees (yeast) for at least 6 months and better yet, up to 3 years and so have good 'BITE'!  The longer on the lees, the richer the texture.Look for SEVRE et MAINE on the bottle, as that appellation is the most...

  • Wowzer,Just tasted my first Viognier and what a delight. I purchased one that was extremely economical but one with respectability in it's ratings. I didn't want to go overboard on my first venture with a newbie.This one averaged 3 and a half out of 5 here at Snooth. I'm sure it's well known, it's called McManis Family Vineyards out of Ripon Cal... Read More

  • I recently acquired a Gloria Ferrer  "Brut" sparkling wine,, Freixenet,  from the Sonoma Caves. It is 3ltrs and in a wooden case. It has a disgorgement date of 7/7/1984. My questions:  Is this a good wine. Is it a valuable wine and what is the approximate value. What effect does the disgorgement date have on its quality and value. As you can tel... Read More

  • I looked at the video. Thanks. Interesting.But isn't he starting out with a ... ... say, and quite a lot of good grapes sell for still less. And it's kind of a vicious cycle. Growers can charge that much, when they do, because they know the people buying them know that there are ultra-rich people out there who will buy the very expensive wines... Read More

  • To Stephen: I've always wondered what the REAL cost of producing a bottle of wine is in this area (granted that there surely is a range). I have 34 vines in my back yard (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese). I once calculated that, even at the outrageous per-bottle cost I incur (because I make only about 60 bottles a year), I cou... Read More

  • Good discussion.  I like your examples, Colin.  Tasting rooms that appear over the top to me don't make the wine taste any better.  It is about hype, glitz/sizzle and image.  Not my style.I am not sure where the cutoff is, but I am guessing that somewhere in the $30-60 range there starts to be a complete disconnect between necessary production c...

  • I remember that video. He did a good job.But as to clearance - as a New Yorker, I don't want to pay full retail, ever. You always ask for a deal. It's what you do. People have made fortunes clearing out inventory of various products, including clothes, electronics, household goods, etc. In the Village there's a store that specializes in picking ... Read More

  • That wine is a pretty decent wine. As to whether the wine really needed air, that's a whole separate argument. There are people who say that it's nothing after the first couple of minutes, while there are others who swear that an hour or several hours make a big difference.Think about the chemistry of what's happening. Initially you might have a... Read More
