Write a description for this store.
One of the best Margauxs of the 05 vintage for early consumption, in addition to keeping locked up in the cellar for decades. Loads of dark, smokey fruit. Good acidity and tannins that are solid, yet seductive, a long finish and a very memorable wine....
Eric Forest Pouilly Fuisse Terre du Nord Chardonnay France Burgundy Maconnais Eric Forest France (2005)
|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...

I like this wine! Got a few bottles of it in 2006. Some I drank right away, and enjoyed. I opened my last bottle recently and felt that it didn't age as well as it should have, even though it wasn't too long. While it had a nice bouquet, it was a l...

Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More
Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More
USA Values? I strongly believe that the optimal "Cellaring Worthy" USA Wines for the value lye in Sonoma County Pinot Noirs.. 2012 Gobble them up... Pisoni, Rosella's, Gary's. Keefer Ranch, Cargassaci.. possible @ 45-90 USD$$Vineyard Specific; Vintage Specific (SLH and SRH and Sonoma Coast or Russian River) Pinot's are Value and Worthy in my o... Read More
Perhaps we can throw all sorts of wines in here with a mysterious WTF factor, whether photos of the wine, its label, logo, descriptions or what have you. Who knows what they might be? I'll start things out.From the opening scene of the current episode of a well-received TV show: what is this wine? Does it actually exist? What, if anything, is wr... Read More
Bordeaux gets a bad rap for several reasons. the top wines are ridiculously expensive. They also require significant time in the cellar to really show their stuff, and the style of these wines has changed over the years, becoming bolder, riper, and to many palates both less fresh and less complex. That’s the problem with expensive Bordeaux, but ... Read More
Just found another offering for the same Muscadet winemaker I recommended above. My warning flag popped up because this level of attention often leads to future price rises... ;-(From the Somm Select flash site. Not sure how the formatting will transfer, so apologizing ahead of time if it doesn't work so well... DOMAINE DE LA PÉPIÈRE, CHÂTEAU T... Read More
I haven't tasted a Zinfandel in many years and would like to get reacquainted. Any recommendations for a fruit-forward one around $25? Read More
For someone who drinks a lot of expensive wine I can have decidedly plebeian tastes at times, and that’s the way things should be. We should not derive our satisfaction from wine from the price tag nor the point score for that matter. Both are just numbers, though the point scores do help to illustrate how much I like a wine in an easy to unders... Read More
So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More
Sorry, haven't been on here for a couple days so I thought it was time to catch up. Woke up Saturday morning and found ourselves in Marseilles where we're starting our next great wine adventure. First day was spent trying to get rid of the jet lag cobwebs so we took it easy, checked out Aix-en-Provence and then headed to the villa in St. Remy. D... Read More
