Re: Private Tours for Porto, Portugal and Bordeaux, France

Hoping this is a great place to ask my questions. In May, 2018, my husband and I will be on a cruise that spends a day in Porto, Portugal and then later in the cruise we have two days in Bordeaux, France. We would like to have a private tour in both locations. Does anyone have a suggestion of a com...

Re: 2015 St. Emilion wine shutdown?

Lusseau is a wine to drink young IMO.

Read this, it will help.

It depends on the wine. What wine?

I have to admit, I have not paid a lot of attention to the Billercart, or changes in the wine. I have always enjoyed it and for the money, think it's hard to beat. Like you, I also pay up for the Guigal's, they are for me, without peer.

Re: Masseto, Flaccianello, Dal Forno, Percristina, Rinaldi, Scavino, Brovia, many more

Blake, I also really like Masseto, but I continue to be perplexed by the obscenely, high prices paid for this wine. Good juice, but at least for my palate, it is among the worst QPR's of any wine. NV BILLECART-SALMON BRUT ROSE is also our house Champagne. It's just super, and while not cheap, at lea...

Everyone loves Trotanoy. We can ask Bonnie and Joe, plus I know several people with the wines. Should be easy to do, and fun!

Re: Trotanoy

Hey Dave

I like your taste in wine. Trotanoy is one of the great wines of Bordeaux and of course Pomerol. 00, 98, 90, 82, 71 & 70 are the best wines to open today. If you like, with some of our mutual friends, we should put together a Trotanoy dinner!!!

Re: Northern Rhone 1997

Hi Paul.... I own all those 1997 wines in my cellar. I like the vintage. It is sort of like 2001 or 1985 in Bordeaux, early drinking, yet with style and substance. I think they can all age, or at least I hope so, as I have a lot remaining. It's been a few years since my last Chapoutier, but that sho...

Re: Napa Valley Tasting

HI Martin Sorry for not responding yesterday. But I have been swamped with a project. What a great selection of wines How did you get all the California Cabernet Sauvignon wines in Europe? If it was me, I'd decant all wines about the same, 2 hours each. I'd probably remove flight #1 and place the 11...

Re: 2006 E. Guigal La Turque Cote Rotie

For me, it all depends. While I seldom get to drink the young vintages, recently the 09's were just stellar, right out of the bottle. Just popped and poured. But the 2010's, even with 3 hours or so of air, were still quite stubborn.

Those Vina Reals are special. I have had them back to the early 1950's and they are just stunning!

Re: 96` Henriot Brut in magnum; 74` Ridge Zinfandel; 92` Williams Selyem Allen Pinot Noir

Blake... I have had a few old Zins that aged just great. One from 69 was very good. If your wine was bottled in 1974, I would think it was from the 72 vintage however. What do you think?
