A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More
I recently heard that in addition to its contribution to the flavor and complexity of wines, that oak was also an effective anti-oxidant, helping the wine to age gracefully for longer periods of time. Also, that sediment in older wines had to do with the oak.It prompted me to search for some additional articles or info on oak. Found this random ... Read More
Hi All, I have a few thoughts/questions that I would appreciate comments on. I have been some-what seriously drinking wine for about eight years now. I am 61 years old and before the "wine enlightenment", drank mostly micro-brewery and other not so chic types of beer. Every year now for the past four, I have held a blind tasting of different r...

Hello all!! My husband and I enjoy wine. He is really good at picking blind, but then he favors Chiantis and Maison Louis Jadot and has never gone wrong. He can even pick, let's say a Portuguese wine -which we love- and it will be good.I, on the other hand, love to read about wine and investigate. I don't always do as well. For example, I just w...

The vintners love beer, the retailers tell stories of ghostly green absinthe, of vodka made in airplane hangars. And our readers, well: Our read... Read More
Well, I have got a few ideas, but I bet you snoothers can come up with a lot of interesting angles on this question. Read More

I am not a mathematician but I wonder if there is a formula to obtain a value rate using price and scores (100/100). I.e. Wine A costs $20 and gets a score of 90 points and Wine B costs $45 and gets a score of 90 points as well; is there a formula that can tell me (mathematically) that the value of Wine A is higher?I am sure one of you may have ...

We live in the far South West of England, a long way from the usual cross Channel ports such as Dover. We do however, have a local ferry operator out of Plymouth which gives the choice of 2 routes to Europe. One to Roscoff in Brittany and the other Santander in Spain. Also you can choose to combine these for a round trip, in by one port and out ... Read More
