  • In this case, a '79 Mondavi Chardonnay Reserve stole the show. Just the fact that it was still upright, despite passive cellaring (another from a previously discussed estate sale my neighbor scored on) was enough to write about. However, this surprisingly gave some real, almost sublime pleasure, despite being on the precipice of oxidation. It dr... Read More

  • Oh dear, more good French wines well under $20, even after import across the Atlantic. I'm liking Chambers Street more and more, the more I visit their offerings. These guys seem to understand wine in ways that I do and like. In their essay below there's a link to a current Asimov article on Muscadet. It's also well worth jumping to and reading.... Read More

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...

  • So, when we found out we would not be sending our older daughter to private school, we decided to celebrate by taking a long trip to Europe this summer.  Our flights put us in Amsterdam June 29 to July 1 or so, then we land in Rome.  We depart from Paris July 19 or so.  The rest is left to be filled in.  It'll be my first trip back since '88 (ou...

  •  Hello all!I am proud to be a wine lover, but an amateur at best. To improve my knowledge I have been studying (God bless my university's library!) as much as I can about regions, varietals, etc. through books and whatnot. Recently, I came across a sub-region in the Bordeaux appellation called Sauternes. The way my book (Zraly's wine course...) ... Read More

  • I usually buy wines priced from $9-$13 and I'm wondering if anyone has some favorites in this price range.  I'll try any type of wine.  Thanks!! Read More

  • I tried to search for a forum about this but I couldn't find one, even though I'm sure there is somewhere. Put simply, I am extremely confused about French Wines - I know they don't put the varietal on the label but that's about it. How do you know what you're buying? Can anyone give me any details or direct me to any good references about this ... Read More

  • If you even think you might like Amarone you must try the 2002 Trabucchi Amarone.  Not only does this wine defy your Amarone stereotypes, but it does so at about half the price of many better known, though not more satisfying, labels. One of the issues I have with Amarone is that they can be huge, and thus tough to pair with food. The way it's m... Read More
