We haven't even begun to talk about "tête de cuvée" offerings other than Dom. The first that opened my eyes to better things beyond Dom was La Grande Dame, but then I found I liked Winston Churchill even better, and so on and so forth. Then I found Krug and Salon.

Yesterday the California State Assembly passed bill AB-1322, a proposed expansion of an existing law to allow salons and barber shops to serve alcoholic beverages. “Barbershops and hair salons in California are one step closer to being able to serve up alcohol alongside beauty ser...

Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

Open and rather gentle, it's more of a soft, elegant beauty with some citrus popping out. Showed good energy and persistence on the finish, suggesting it should ... Read More

I've tasted an entry level Turgy product and really liked it for the money. The best vintage bubbly recently was a 2002 Piper Heidsieck "Rare" blanc de blancs. It was the most laser-like Champagne I've had in a long time as far as balance and intensity of fruit are concerned. As it warmed in the glass a generous array of stone fruits emerged wi... Read More
