  • I'm not sure that the L.A. Times' standards are quite as bad as you seem to imply, DM.  In fact, last month two of their writers received Pulitzers--Diana Marcum, for Feature Writing and Mary McNamara for Criticism (she is the TV critic).  Additionally, Times witers were finalist is the International Reporting and the Breaking News Reporting cat...

  • I was going to comment on the French stickie but got a little behind.  I'm not going to let GregT's erudition or my tardiness stop me, though.  Thing about Sauternes/Barsac/etc.  is that Yquem appreciates and commands a huge premium.  Nearly everyone who knows those wines says it's clearly the best of its sort.  Do they say it is ten or a dozen ...

  • I'm finally getting around to this.  Last week we spent a few days in ... label that Talley uses is for wines that are not from their estate vineyards or that do not get serious oak aging.  WInes labeled "Talley Vineyards" are estate grown and receive significant oak.  So, the "Bishop's Peak" wines tend to be less expensive.  All the Chardonna...

They wanted to explore the technology but wanted their decisions to be well informed for their particular wines.

  • I think I know a decent enough about wine. But this year, not from any specific vintage or anything, but various wines, I have been getting "bad wine" I think so. Like tonight. ANd the last time. Different wines, different stores. And this has happened I guess two or three other times this year. The first couple of times I took the stuff back, b... Read More

  • Just when you thought the news about robots roaming the skies above the vineyards or the earth below  had come to an end, the Royal Society of Chemistry's online publication, Chemistry World, released a report about Japanese scientists led by Kohji Mitsubayashi who created a machine which uses visual cues to determine the scent of a wine. “Diffe...

  • I was looking for wine reviews for a few lesser known South African wines, and was disappointed to find that nobody has reviewed the wines I'm buying. So I started looking around at various wine review websites, and came across snooth. For a long time I've tried to keep track of my own wine tastings and reviews, but I keep losing my wine journal...

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

  • I got that email and was tempted to post it here, so good on David for doing it.  What caught my eye is how HDH is doing ever more business auctioning Burgundy wines.  In fact, I looked at their annual report for last year and DRC was their biggest money maker.  Which kind of amazed me, because DRC just doesn't make a whole lot of wine--they onl...
