  • Blast the gaps in back vintage stock! I've got a pretty big gap on all vintages prior to 2008.The 2011 Fenocchio Barolo's I tried last winter needed many hours in the decanter, and/or a two day situation to open. Since I bought nearly a case, and wasn't entirely happy with the first, wanted to crack another while visiting RF and it seemed to pre... Read More

  • I've seen the Cavallotto label over the years appearing plenty on-line, like on my facebook feed, but I've never thought to give the wines any attention myself until recently. Having started exploring Barolo with mainly the Mascarello's and Conterno's, I've slowly been trying other (lesser known) producers, and the experience has proven to be ve... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of venerable old Burgundy from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/104313 for £22.50.Vosne-Romanee is an appellation created in 1936 [ although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans ] for red wines made of the pinot noir grape from the communes of Vosne-Romanee and its neighbour Flagey-Echezeaux on the...

  • 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...
