  • OK, expect several other Bordeaux chateaux  to experience price rises in the near future. We saw it happen when the Chinese went gaga over first growths, as well as DRC. Now RP is helping the Bordelaise spread the net a bit further.He's helped Hong Kong auctioneers ("Wine Future Hong Kong" on Nov. 8)  with a category he apparently calls the 'Mag... Read More

  • I have just recently encountered the expression "black glass tasting."  It sounds like in a black glass tasting, the participants are using black glasses so that they cannot discern the color of the wine.  I went to Wikipedia and saw this sentence regarding the rationale behind black glass tasting, "A taster's judgment can be prejudiced by knowi...

  • When I first took up wine as a true hobby a few years back, I assumed that what makes a wine enjoyable was about 50/50...

  • The cork vs. screwcap as a wine bottle closure argument/discussion has been done more than once on these pages.  My point here is to encourage some discussion around the merits (or lack-there-of) of arguments in favor of cork as an ethical choice, similar to choosing organic wines, etc.The journalof the Ecological Society Of America published th...

  • I would like to buy a case of wine that we could cellar for about 20 years. My daughter was born in 2006, and we would like to cellar a wine until her wedding. We would like to keep costs to a minimum, but I do realize that quality does have its price. Our tastes tend to change over time, but the last couple of years we have taken a liking to th...
