  • Utter, unmitigated rubbish, not to put too fine a point on it.Chablis has been a hotbed of oak vs steel controversy for three decades now (notice that's only the tip of the iceberg in historical terms for the region--before that, plenty of oak). Major figures lead the attack from both sides of the divide, trying to make names for themselves. At ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic White Burgundy Question


  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • We had a white wine from Viserny last week. That's Viserny there in the photo. It's just down the road from where we live. And you would never guess but it's the most important wine village in the area. The wine we tasted was a well-made-home-made inscrutable, and enough of a curiosity that we wanted to meet the person who made it. So we got an ... Read More

  • It’s not malarkey. Weather conditions have a huge impact on a wine grape’s life, and vintage variations underscore the tie between winemaking and Mother Nature’s caprice. Just like your home cooked meal hinges on the character of its ingredients, your wine is dictated by the experience of its grapes. While climate, terroir, soil, and je ne sais ... Read More

  • LOTS of good wine out of S.A. They've got plenty of winemaking history down there and some of the most beautiful vineyards anywhere, for what that's worth.Focus on one or two varietals and try several. Chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc are good places to start. Very good qpr, but not only that, more-than-decent wines. Just don't expect supermarke... Read More

  • When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family. However, not all wine is designed to age a long time. I have heard so many stories of people saving a bottle of wine that they were given as a gift only to... Read More

  • Don't mean to offend, but how about on January 1st, 2016, the 2005 vintage is 10 years old beyond a reasonable doubt?   Read More

  • I started a thread on WB recently, and not many folks agreed with my stance, though I suspect many more do agree that just don't say anything.Strictly speaking about Northern Hemisphere Wines, leaving the various barrel aging out of it for sake of discussion. Read More

  • There’s only one source for the best Italian wines in the world: Gambero Rosso. You can think of this publication as Italy’s answer to the United States’ Wine Spectator. Every year, Gambero Rosso puts on a worldwide “roadshow” known as Tre Biccheri (which means “Three Glasses” in Italian), to pour their best wines of year. “Three Glasses” is the... Read More

  • Il Marroneto Madonna delle Grazie (a Riserva) was the 2001 Brunello.  The corked wine was Greg's Mastrojanni BdM, shame because the wine hiding behind the corkiness was probably really good. My take on the Marroneto (which was my contribution) was that it was really tasty, but young.  There were hints of the secondary notes that it will gain wit...
