Eric Forest Pouilly Fuisse Terre du Nord Chardonnay France Burgundy Maconnais Eric Forest France (2005)
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Mâconnais » Pouilly-fuissé|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Mâconnais » Pouilly-fuissé|
Good, crisp Pouilly-Fuisse, but in the context of the vintage and appellation and producer, something of a disappointment. I actually strongly preferred the "lesser" Macon-Vergisson from Eric Forest to this wine, which is more than double the price. Th...

Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
This highly regarded wine has some presence in my cellar, perhaps because, as Stephen Brooks notes, there is something slightly wild in each bottle. On the nose, there is sweet blueberry and wood (cedar) with just a hint of cloves. Inviting. On the ...

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Côtes de Bourg|
With all the focus on upcoming vintages I thought it was time to look at a less well known Bordeaux from the highly acclaimed 2005 vintage. This value, whose price has barely climbed up since release remains a wine worth purchasing, or does it? On op...

It can be tricky, this variety, especially at this price point; too often it's perfectly pleasant, appley and fresh, but just a bit ... dull. This, however, is what you hope for: a beautiful golden colour, perfumed, almost viognier-like asparagus nose,...

|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Russian River Valley|
The 2004 vintage is a tremendous pinot noir from the Russian River. The wine is very concentrated with complex layer fruit ranging over Pinot Noir in the new world. The initial flavors are cherry, blueberry changing into blueberry jam, smoky and...
|Region:||France » Rhône » Southern Rhône » Vinsobres|
A splendid little wine by Perrin et fils, this regular Southern Rhone offering is redolent of wild blueberry and bilberry with soft tannin and blended red fruit mid-palate - perfect for current consumption from a highly touted vintage (which, in this i...

ProWein, the annual wine and spirits fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the high water mark for wine brands, regions, and drinkers worldwide. Nearly every wine producing area you’ve ever heard of (or not heard of) is represented at this event. The event is so huge that it should have its own postal code. This is one of those rare instances in life ... Read More
I find my 1995 Madiran a bit dry/tart for my taste and am considering blending the remaining four bottles with a Cabernet. Any objections? Suggestions? March 25, 2016 Read More
When I see those drinking windows on CT that say, 2016-2022, I think of the harvest date as the beginning of that year. So a S. Hemi wine that says 2016 is the beginning of the window means March or so, and a N. Hemi wine means fall of 2016. I would also date the wine from the day of harvest--before that, what grapes will go into the wine (if ... Read More
Since we open wine everyday, it's true that it's age needn't be a big whole even number.I totally get JD's point though. Maybe only weirdos like he and I would actually hold a wine for a few more months to satisfy the big anniversaries. Read More
This is precisely why I waited until late August to open my 1994 Mondavi reserve and Beringer private reserve a couple years ago. In March, they weren't twenty years old.At what point is a grape berry a being? Read More

Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...
