  • Oh dear, more good French wines well under $20, even after import across the Atlantic. I'm liking Chambers Street more and more, the more I visit their offerings. These guys seem to understand wine in ways that I do and like. In their essay below there's a link to a current Asimov article on Muscadet. It's also well worth jumping to and reading.... Read More

  • Greetings to all from sunny Languedoc, thanks for taking the time to resond, I appreciate the welcome and the questions (although I cannot answer all of them, or necessarily provide as much detail as you might hope for, as I work full time as well as raising a family). To respond briefly to the questions: Cahors is not in Languedoc-Roussillon (i... Read More

  • I just read, with some envy I might add, a report on a dinner of quite ... ... Bordeaux, a pair of Grand Cru wines from Joseph Drouhin, and the obligatory aged Champagne. Today it’s the envy, and not so much the wines that I would like to talk about. Presumably on the same night as my friend indulged to excess I has tasted through a flight of ... Read More

  • Dear All, I'm new to Snooth so I wanted to start by making a contribution to the community. I've lived in Languedoc since 2002 and work in wine as a marketing/PR consultant. When I travel in wine country I often seek  personal recommendations via the internet, so I'm always happy to help wine enthusiasts who are planning a trip to MY region, by ... Read More

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • Massolino Barolo Parussi 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The top of the Cru in Castiglione, which one would expect to give a more supple wine, but it doesnt! Very floral on the nose and at the same time absolutely packed with raspberry, black raspberry fruit and black tea notes. Not as complex on the nose as the wines from Serralunga and more obviously fruity. Broad and supple in the mouth, there is a... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • 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

  • JD, that Burlotto Monvigliero is a gorgeous wine, one of the best on the trip.  If you get a line on it, let me know. D, Jamie's pricing at Chambers is really fair.  But, against all odds, we didn't drink any of those wines.  We skipped Aldo Conterno, Damilano, and pretty much everything on there.  You posted another list with Capellano and mayb...

  • If in the States right now I'd definitely be buying off this list. Really do like Chambers Street. How many of these were you drinking over in Italy, Fox?The non-Italians are mouth-watering, too. More Cellar Search ResultsWe've finished inventory and have turned up some more interesting bottles - at interesting prices.Click to view up-to-date in...

  • Sorry, haven't been on here for a couple days so I thought it was time to catch up. Woke up Saturday morning and found ourselves in Marseilles where we're starting our next great wine adventure. First day was spent trying to get rid of the jet lag cobwebs so we took it easy, checked out Aix-en-Provence and then headed to the villa in St. Remy. D...
