  • I wonder if anyone can take a guess at the value (or lack of) for these two bottles.  They were salvaged from a cellar where they've lain undisturbed for the past 80 years or so.  There were several other bottles of various wines and spirits, unfortunately, some sort of insects had consumed most of the labels and even a good portion of the corks...

  • Had a somewhat similar tale about some '53s. I still had a couple of Remoissenet '53s remaining in my cellar a couple years back, one Clos Vougeot and one Vosne Romanee. Had a friend born that year whom I've known for years. He's French, been Maitre d' at a number of well known French places in this town, but now is running the bar at a private ... Read More

  • Carménère is an old grape variety from the Gironde. DNA analysis suggests that it’s a cross between Cabernet Franc and Gros Cabernet (which is itself a distant relative of Cabernet Franc). Fortunately for our collective palates, when it comes to wine grape parentage, breeding with a relative can be a very good thing. Carménère is a highly refine... Read More

  • Welcome Ellen, nice first post (a big rarity around here at Snooth).I've been thinking about some of the same themes you mention here, like wines in the $30 - 50 range, and the big field of dry wines, with some toward the sweet side and other dry wines very savory.The dry wines of much of Italy and Spain (Chianti, Piedmont/Barolo or Barbaresco, ...

  • Long time lurker on both Snooth and Wine Berserkers. Why I decided to post now, I am not sure. Lover of California red wines particularly Zins and Cabs. Just getting into Pinots. Hate spending more than $50/ bottle. My comfort level is between $30-$40. Small wine cellar ( about 100 bottles) because we tend to drink what we buy.I do not feel that... Read More

  • We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More

  • Just back from Chablis with a few thoughts. The first is that the Chablisienne should try and find another name for Petit Chablis. I often hear wine enthusiasts say it’s “Chablis that didn’t make the grade”, “from young vines or poor vineyards”. Sadly, this is not surprising as the name does suggest an inferior wine but after two days of tasting... Read More

There was the time we assured you that Thanksgiving wines wouldn't break your bank. In fact, we've discussed Thanksgiving value wines time and time again. We've been here for you during Tha...
