Well I sure hope so! Looking forward to it. Hopefully I have time to give them some air.

I just got mine.  Philippe Colim Chassagne-Montrachet for the white, Volnay Clos de la Cave from Rossignol for red. 

D, I got that last image from a Japanese website, so I imagine it's available where you are. Have a drink with us in the morning your time?

Thanks to dmcker, I stocked up and am fairly lousy with Gevrey-Chambertin. (I love how that sounds, but 4 bottles isn't really "lousy with" something, is it? I can dream...) So in any case, I'm happy to be tasting the Volnay.  Now, if outthere and I could get together, we could revisit the whole "what is 'Burgundian'" thing.

Anyway, I stayed late at work today, so I'm using that as my excuse to be home early tomorrow.

While entering tasting notes on the burgs tonight I noticed they are listed in snooth as Rhones. Oops! Maybe someone can correct that?

Just wanted to add that it was a great tasting.  I've enjoyed others, but the wine was terrific, the hosts were terrific, and the technology had only a couple minor hiccups.  WineBuddy#1 was wildly impressed, and might finally get on Snooth.  We had to kick him out so we could eat dinner!
