Chateau Haut Brion
thoroughly blissful experience is drinking this wine, as can be expected of most bordeaux of this caliber and depth of aging. deep, dense, dark fruits and herbs. smoky, oaky, and complex. bold in its power, yet long and balanced in its delivery, this w...

Sturgeon have swum the Bordeaux river basin as long as Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle have rooted down the region’s vineyards. They make an excellent pairing, yet this duo has long been overlooked.Even taken separately, this is true. Magret de canard and foie gras are de riguer at the Bordelais table. Though Bordeaux is nestled betwee... Read More

ANSWER TO A SOMMELIER'S PRAYER !When Clarence Dillon bid for the best venerable Bordeaux wine fields "by the river" that the town of Bordeaux had turned down as a gift in 1934 because the "upkeep was too costly", and astutely closed the deal to his family's lasting advantage in 1935, he renamed the vignoble Chateau Haut-Brion, a tongue-in-cheek...

A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC. ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More
Freemark Abbey was actually quite good back in the late '60s, all through the '70s and into the '80s. They were even included in the 1976 Judgment of Paris where they took 10th place, amongst some very heavyweight competition. Will post those results, fully expecting the formatting to go awry... ;-( For the reds, then the whites:RankGradeWineVin... Read More

There are many wines I'd like to buy if money weren't an issue. Here's one of them:2010 Beaucastel Hommage a Perrin - Made from 70% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, Grenache, and Counoise. 500 cases produced. Some IWC text: Bright ruby. A drop-dead, room-filling bouquet evokes black raspberry liqueur, incense, anise and lavender, with smoke and herb overto... Read More
I just posted almost all of my notes on Bordeaux 2012 on my ... upset because he said that Chateau Haut Brion 1943 is probably the best Bordeaux from that vintage that he has ever had. But, yes, things could get better. Wine number three started out subtle and quite soft but firmed up in glass to become the best of the flight... Very elega... Read More
I am a new wine lover. A year or two ago I was having troubles staying away from 'the sauce'. It wasn't alcoholism, per se, but it was getting to the point where I was spending much of my money and getting very little done. So, being that I am working in a fine dining restaurant, Carnevor Steakhouse in Milwaukee, WI, I decided to begin studying... Read More
All my scotch friends have special "end of the world" bottles. I suspect that many of us do, too. So, considering that the end of the world is supposed to happen in a matter of days per our Mayan friends, and that happens to coincide with the Christmas season.....what are you planning to open this Christmas? If the world starts to come apart de... Read More
