Bass Phillip on Snooth
I haven't been checking snooth as much as I should recently, so missed this ... ... a couple I tried from Bass Phillip in Gippsland, Australia to that list. I'd be tempted to add Lucy Margaux Vineyard's own Lucy Margaux Vineyard Pinot Noir to that list, but I've only ever had it once, from barrel. Need to try it as a bottled wine, too.In Burg...

Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

Soo... based on some other threads, the topic of Burgundies vs. CA pinots has arisen. I, being a French virgin, would love to hear more about burgundies.

So with the end of summer approaching my thoughts return to drinking more red wine. That may, or may not be a good thing but it started me thinking - What do WE want to drink?If we have a few coordinated tastings, maybe even in a chatroom somewhere - live, we could try similar wines and share experiences, maybe even try the same exact wine.At ba...

Last night I hosted a tasting party at my tiny pad in Manhattan for Pinot Noirs from around the world. Doing the research I found that Pinot Noirs are grown in at least 17 different countries, from well known regions such as those found in France and the United States to lesser known like Macedonia and South Africa. For this tasting party I na... Read More
