Thanks Gregory. I perfer old world wines particulary Italian wines. My biggest challenge with French wines is the language (remembering names, etc) and the appellations.

Hello I live in NYC and am a fan of burgundy wine company, sherry lehman and empire wines. Right now I am trying to build a cellar of 96 bottles and I have about four cases to go. The crown jewel in my cellar is Pontet Canet. Other than that there is nothing remarkable in terms of price. But I am hitting this point where I am more interested in collecting than drinking. hmm? I am using Dennis Overstreet New Wine Guide and the Wine Bible. I still don't feel like I know anything.

Hi Joe
Do you drink wines from the Loire valley? That's where I live - in between Angers and Saumur in the heart of wine country.

Cathy - I have in the past but was some time ago. I'll look to try some again. Can you recommend any?

NYWG - Thanks. I'm trying to let them age but it's very tempting to drink them. I have some others I have not completely updated my current stock of wines. I'll review what you've tried as well.

Joe
Have you got any particular preferences for red, white, sparkling, sweet or dry? A lot to ask I know but the Loire's a bit place with something for everyone. What kind of wines do you like? I have lots to recommend from over here - juicy and easy to robust and tannic, light and citric, to sweet and unctious.

My favorite NYC place is

Astor Wines
399 Lafayette (corner East 4th St.)
New York, NY 10003

http://www.astorwines.com/

212-674-7500

They deliver. Good discount on 12 bottles.

Walk around the store. Ask questions.

Sales people are really 'into it'. Smart folks.

Customize advise (Like compairing price vs. country of origin and/or pairing with foods.)

Check it out.

Cathy - I prefer reds..generally with good acidity, earthy and not high alcoholic fruit bombs that overwhelm the pallete (sp?)...Whites - I prefer really acidic whites that are refreshing.. sparkling cold go either way

Dr Bob - thanks for that recommendation...I will check it out

Will give this a bit of thought. If you like Sauvignon Blanc based wines then those from the appellation of Quincy can be great value. Just like Sancerre and Pouilly Fume but a teensy bit softer on the palate they are less known and a fraction of the price tag that accompanies the big names. And there are lots of Chenin Blanc based wines I can recommend. Bernard Fouquet's Vouvrays are fabulous - he makes dry and sweeter styles and a great sparkling dry Vouvray as well. And for real class the wines from Huet are just unbeatable - in Vouvray again - lean and mineral with amazing fruit and a great whack of acidity.
