  • Oh, boy, that's some gorgeous fruit.  Looks like a third epic vintage in a row.  Any chance of tasting that from barrel? Sadly, there was a time, before all these vineyards were known to the hedge fund managers by name, when you could buy a wine with ToKalon fruit on a mere public sector lawyer's salary.  Now I have to make nice--oh, wait, you'r...

  • Thanks Zuf, well said.Definitely wishing I paid more attention to Meursault a few years before now. Other than Jadot, I'm looking to try a few Bouchards, Pierre Yves (if I can find any), Boillot, Comte Lafon, and maybe an odd Roulot or other premium producer here or there. That Latour you mention looks like great value Zuf (originally thought it... Read More

  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More

I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas?

I've read a little on the interwebs and so far it sounds good. I was wondering if any of you Snoothers had tried this stuff and could provide any feedback.What does it most clearly com... Read More
