  • It would have been nice to have a few more folks, since we like to get together with as many of you as we can.  We certainly had enough wine, thanks to JD. I'd say, yes, it's infanticide to drink 04 and 06 Barolo, but I think it drinks well younger, better than it used to, because some of what made it tough was faults in wine making.  Long macer...

  • Something to digest: When one thinks of Barbaresco the names that most readily come to mind are Gaja and Giacosa. These producers have in many ways shaped how we've come to understand this sometimes inscrutable corner of Piedmonte. For years however, those in the know have been whispering the name of another producer who belongs among the top ec... Read More

  • There’s always a reason to celebrate or something to which you can look forward. It could be the re-release of your favorite Starbucks drink, catching up with an old friend, or even a three day weekend. But when you need something extra special about which to get ecstatic, there is Champagne and caviar. Caviar may be making a comeback, but did i... Read More

  • Yes, I do have a mind to buy more back vintages of things, though there is also a driving need to really cover the various vintages that come up as extensively as possible. 2010 was great in so many regions, while 2012 is a birth year for my son, and then 2013 certain villages in Burgundy really jumped out at me for the first time like Chambolle...

  • Okay, back to the topic:  The SIWBM is going badly.  What can you do when WTSO is selling 2014 La Chablisienne Montmains 1er at $20 all included?  Now, they're not, oh, Fevre, it's the local co-op, but it's a very good co-op and the wines are certainly $20 well spent... for 1er Cru level juice.  So now I have some white besides the Jemrose Viogn...

  • Considering that a number of wines posted here at the same price point as this offering can be described as middling at best, this nebbiolo from the Piemontese hill country near the Valle d’Aosta looks like a steal.If I were in NYC I'd be going to the dinner. No matter what, this ain't same old, same old and is truly enticing. Obscure but with l... Read More

  • Yesterday was Kientzheim day. I looked into renting a car for a day trip, went to the Avis web site and saw some fairly high rates for some very small cars $50-$70 for one day. Decided that the price was a bit steep but clicked a bit further in the booking process. When I got near the last step the "extra" charges showed up - more than doubling ... Read More
