  • Les Clos de Paulilles Banyuls Rimage 2003

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/68532. Banyuls is an appellation created in 1936,although viticulture in the area goes back centuries,for red and white fortified wines from around the Mediterranean seaside town of that name between Perpignan and the Spanish border.This is the same ...

  • I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More

  • What was the vintage, Duncan? Sounds like they may be using whole bunches (including stems) and that it was still probably young. Perhaps it might've benefited from a few hours' decant?Here're some notes on the winemaker, whom Kermit Lynch apparently things much of. I haven't had any of his wines yet.  Edit:My bad, appears they destem completely... Read More

  • Domaine Gachot-Monot Nuits St. Georges les Poulettes Premiere Cru 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle was bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/90903 for £12.50. I bought it because I had a Cotes de Nuits Village wine from the same producer a few years ago and thought it just exquisite. Nuits St Georges is an AOC created in 1936 for red and white wines [ though nearly all are red ] made of pinot noir and chardonna... Read More

  • Would love to hear about it. Have precious few Pommards in the cellar, mostly Billard-Gonnett and a couple new school Faiveley. Rugiens seems to be the vineyard that gets a lot of the attention, where Volnay seems a bit more diverse in the celebration of the Cru's and even village wines from Lafarge and Leroux are highly regarded.

  • Had an OK Pommard premier cru that was religiously whole cluster over the weekend, and even sensuous for that appellation. May post later on it.  Read More

    Forum post in the topic Oregon Pinot - Kelley Fox Wines


  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

  • Burgundy in Bordeaux glasses? How gauche. I have a 2006 Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roy I'll sell you for half that wine list price if you want to see what they are like with a litte age in them. Read More

  • On Friday February 26, I was fortunate enough to be the guest of Randall ... ... 25% new oak, while the grand cru wines receive up to 80% new oak for 16-18 months.A decadent first course of seared Calves Brains with brown butter and capers was paired with multiple vintages of Morey-Saint Denis 1:e Cru Aux Cheseaux. The 2004 vintage was the lig... Read More

  • Chenas Cru du Beaujolais Chateau de Chenas 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/72115 for £12. Chenas is an appellation for red wines created in 1936 [although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans] from the two communes of Chenas and Chapelle de Guinchay about 10 miles south of the town of Macon.It is the smallest,at only 260 ...
