  • This isn't so much an absolute no-no, but points to another issue with wine storage: ambient odors. In one sense a cigar thermidor and wine cellar have similar needs: sufficient humidity. But thermidors require even more than a wine cellar, and generally function well at higher temperatures. Anyway, my point is you don't really want the pungency... Read More

  • Something to digest: When one thinks of Barbaresco the names that most readily come to mind are Gaja and Giacosa. These producers have in many ways shaped how we've come to understand this sometimes inscrutable corner of Piedmonte. For years however, those in the know have been whispering the name of another producer who belongs among the top ec... Read More

  • Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

  • I have had a lot of fun, the last few days thinking about this.  The technical in me strives for precision.  However, precision is not required to facilitate communication--good enough is good enough.I have, in fact, used the words "more complete."  I agree that it is a lot easier to use than "less incomplete."I don't think I've ever said that s...

  • I'm approving this because you were up front about your intentions and seemed to ask our honest opinions.  I'm probably a little unclear on a couple things, and since your website isn't functional, I can't look there for answers. $2.50 per bottle per month (your way of expressing it suggests you aren't from the US) is not inexpensive.  I recentl...

  • 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

  • Grange is very good, without a doubt, and sometimes even worth the money. But it's hardly the be all and end all of syrah.I have to agree with this. No way am I disparaging it, but when we've put it into blind tastings, it's frequently failed to live up to it's billing. In that way it's like Opus One in a sense - very good wine, even better repu... Read More

  • Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More

  • Mike did that with his own wines, which he tastes every day.  I imagine he could do it with some others as well.  And I can imagine that GregT can do that with Riojas because he tastes a lot of them, does so frequently, and pays a lot of attention to them.  But there's a real limit to human perception. Note that GregT cannot do the same with tho... Read More
