  • Haven't put up one of these in awhile. This time will make things more specific and real, in that you will need to imagine you're hosting a meal at this restaurant in London's Soho. It's something I did a few times during my period of busy London business visits at the end of the '80s through early last decade. The first time I sweated a bit bec... Read More

  • Domaine Guerrin et Fils Saint-Veran le Clos Vessats 2014

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Notting Hill [www.oddbins.com ] for £12. Saint Veran is an appellation created in 1971,although viticulture has been carried out in the area since at least the Romans,for white wines made of the chardonnay grape from 8 communes in the southern part of the Maconais region of Burgundy.Some of th...

  • Clarendelle Bordeaux Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    So those of modest means (most of us, I think) may find the two Clarendelle wines (in this case, the white) a little dear, although the quality is high for A. C. Bordeaux. The white seems the best in terms of crowd-pleasing power: this young wine has a bouquet of mown lawn, gooseberry, and cake spice. Very inviting. Entry is slightly youthful ... Read More

  • Well you did good to try it a little later. All the GGs are picked at Spatlese level and then fermented dry. For me it's of more academic interest than anything else and I'd probably have done what you did - wonder WTF and put the wine away. Good thing you got back to it in full control of your faculties!It's kind of weird though isn't it - the ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Pulling the Wrong Bottle


  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Was in the mood to open some wine yesterday, reaching for a red but then my wife chimed in, asking for a Riesling. As I didn't especially care to open one I offered a Hungarian white (Zsoke I believe) that was unfortunately corked, so then decided I'd better reach for the Riesling. In so doing, I had assumed it was a basic Schafer Frolich Spatle... Read More

  • In truth, I have no idea what any of those things are, except perhaps acidity, and to me that just means "a sharp, sour taste."  I rarely drink whites, as they seem to have very little flavor.  Remember, without a nose, any taste is extremely bland.  My preference for the wines of Argentina and Chile was just the luck of the draw when I was gift...

  • Kirk - Great attitude given your situation.  Are you able to detect chewy tannins, juicy acidity and whether a wine is full bodied or less? Do whites have a different effect than whites?  I have some ideas for you but would like just a little depth of understanding you situation . Read More

  • Okay, I have no idea how to do this.  I posted what I thought was an intro a week or two ago and I cannot find either my post or any of whatever replies there might have been.  Computers and the arcane rituals one has to perform in order to make sense of any of this crap are an absolute mystery to me.  I am a MENSA member so I know perfectly wel...

  • I’m always being asked to recommend an unusual wine, “one that isn’t Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay”. With media communications improving by the minute it’s getting more and more difficult but at a recent corporate event I saw a few puzzled expressions when I suggested Blaufränkisch. It’s one of my favourite Austrian reds and certainly falls i... Read More
