I'm not a champagne aficionado, and bubbly means headache, but this is probably the best sparkling wine I can remember

Open this bottle during a recent virtual tasting here on Snooth. Quite a different experience enjoying a wine and being able to talk to the head wine maker about the vintage and the climate and their thought process. Very informative and enjoyable. Sli...

Only can find them in fits and spurts in Tokyo. Even the Langhe Nebbiolo, and whenever I see it I grab a case or two. Ditto for the plain vanilla Barbaresco, which is a real step up--from an entry-level wine that is my idea of the ideal daily quaffer that can also even work on special occasions. So I, too, am a big fan.Posted back on Dec. 6 in O... Read More
Regardless of the Barolo's style, you'll get more of its potential out of of a 15-year-old Bordeaux or CA cab than you will out of any serious four or five year old Nebbiolo from the Piedmont. Plus if you insist on drinking 3 to 4 year old wines, how will your palate have a chance to evolve? Decanting is not the be all and end all and certainly ... Read More
Rckr, you'll notice that word "epiphany" in posts. Searching that on the forum yields a lot of stories. There's even a thread on the subject, and it contains my own epiphany wine. It's good to reignite that discussion, as we have newer contributors who have great stories along these lines, like yours. Also, people have their way of thinking c... Read More
I remember mine completely, just like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded. What remains vivid is the experience. The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976. Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot. It was owned by a WW2 refuge... Read More
As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More
This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/68532. Banyuls is an appellation created in 1936,although viticulture in the area goes back centuries,for red and white fortified wines from around the Mediterranean seaside town of that name between Perpignan and the Spanish border.This is the same ...

This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/84728. Cotes de Bourg is an AOC created in 1936 although there is a record of winemaking in the area as long ago as the 2nd century AD from a large area of 15 communes around the small town of Bourg-sur-Gironde.This is located on the right or east ...

Though I managed by being offshore most of the '80s to miss every single episode of FalconCrest, somehow even I recognized the house in that context. Not sure how. Boy has TV gone in different directions since the '80s (not quite like Fargo or True Detective or Breaking Bad or even milder fare like the rather fascist Hawaii Five-O, is it it?). S... Read More
Hi everyone. This is my first post on the boards. My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit. We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More
