A totally compelling Climens and every bit as good as the 1988. It is probably the best Climens made since their spectacular 1971. Still light gold in color, it has an expansive bouquet of new oak, oranges, pineapples, and other tropical fruits. In the...

Château Climens on Snooth

If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise. Why is it I'd rather have one of them on my wall then a Flash banner ad from the Web?Price seems like more than a bargain, and the money goes to charity, too.... ... Here's your chance ... Read More

Recently, I came across a sub-region in the Bordeaux appellation called Sauternes. The way my book (Zraly's wine course...) ... Read More

Hello All!I'm putting a menu together for a wine pairing and wonder if anyone can recommend a white in the $25 range that pairs well with mushrooms stuffed with foie gras, they will be served alongside a carmelized onion bread pudding, so I guess I need a pretty significant white to stand up to that.

If you could settle in any major wine region, which would it be (and why)?This is an incredibly difficult question to answer, but I think if money were no object and many other things in my life were in plac...

Hey everyone, what's the buzz in the US right now about buying Bordeaux 2009 En Primeur?I have never known a vintage to be so 'talked-up' by the press. Investors are hanging on to Parker's index fingers waiting with drooling tongues and wagging tails for it to spout forth its Midas touch. This is THE vintage of the last 100 years folks. Broke...

A totally compelling Climens and every bit as good as the 1988. It is probably the best Climens made since their spectacular 1971. Still light gold in color, it has an expansive bouquet of new oak, oranges, pineapples, and other tropical fruits. In the mouth, there is great richness that seems all the more impressive because of the wine's remark... Read More
