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...

The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
Time to turn the amp up to 11, at least for the wine hype machine, thanks to James Suckling on the 2015 vintage of Chateau Margaux:"The greatest Margaux ever made. More than perfection. Full body, firm and ultra-silky tannins. Black currant, mineral and floral character. It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want t... Read More
So are the prices for the 2000s. I view the 2001 compared to the 2000 vintage like the 1983 compared to the 1982s. Great values for surprisingly good wines hidden in the shadows of the previous year's vintage of the generation. Let it breathe and it'll open up. Have had a couple each fantastic 1983 Moutons and Margaux within the past couple of y... Read More
Which Cab Sav's are REALLY good right of the bat (upon release from the winery) and even better after 5 years? Read More
I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More
You’ll know a glass of Bordeaux when you sniff it -- from the pencil shavings of Pauillac to the elderflowers of Pessac-Leognan. Bordeaux is synonymous quality; it’s a universal truth of the collective wine consciousness. But while quality is often associated with premium pricing, this doesn’t mean you can’t find a great bargain in Bordeaux. The... Read More
Hi everybody, haven´t posted for a while... too busy drinking wine.Anyway, I have a trip to the Loire Valley coming up in July. We will stay 4 nights in Saumure and 2 nights in Sancerre. Anybody has ideas of which winemakers to visit? I like Pinots, Sauvignon Blanc, some Cabernet Franc and wouldn´t mind visiting a good Cremant maker. Anybody bee... Read More
Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More
One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend. Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we? Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an... Read More
Very good list.Chateau St Michelle and Columbia Crest are sister wineries, CC a couple of bucks less usually but both good quality for the price. That Willamette Valley PN is one of the few that I would ever buy - it's actually pretty good but it's vintage-specific so if you don't like one, you can look for a different vintage. It can run up to ... Read More
