Re: Silk road

Jeff, Just a question about troplong mondot. A couple of the tasters have mentioned a pruniness or raisiny quality on the palate. Did you pick up any flavored as such? I really like the tm's I have had in the past, especially the '05 and the 2010 and hadn't detected any overripe flavors. They were p...

One man's mustard is another man's mustard gas. So let us not speak of the flaws of others, the yellow stains that come from our mouths and can end up on our shirt.

Re: Silk road

Re: Silk road

And Jeff, This is a very interesting topic you are getting into regarding the silkiness of wine and I would like to hear or read more about it. I am totally guessing that this quality relates to the tannin quality/quantity and/or something about the fruit. Cheval blanc springs to mind, especially wh...

Re: Silk road

Funny you should mention that Howard, and, in my brief wine life I have had some musigny's and I can only remember what one of the wines tasted like. And that was vogüé. And I remember how it tasted because it was so silky. So if that is the only wine that sticks in my mind isn't that what comts the...

Re: Silk road

Thank you for that and it is much the same list as what I have come up with after reading your notes four times over. i am warming up to the idea of a six pack for each chateaux and ten chateaux with representatives from both sides of the river to be a time capsule and cross-section of the vintage.

Re: 2014 Sauternes

Howard, I have purchased a lot of sauternes over the years and if I want a sauternes from a small winery, it is better to purchase en primeur because there might not be much when it becomes available in the retail stores. These wines are cheap so putting out a few hundred dollars for a case for a fe...

2001 Montrachet Etienne Sauzet Grand Cru

I formerly though drinking white burgundy was mostly based on a dare until I had this wine at a formal white burgundy tasting. Light as a feather and with a rich midpalate that covered minerals so I couldn't find them. The acid created more than just freshness and was beautiful and the finish very l...

2009 d'Ampuis

Jeff,

I didnt see this wine in your tasting notes. If you havent had it have you heard anything about it or can you put together the year with the wine and make an educated guess? Thanks

2013 sauternes

Jeff,

Do you have any idea how long the 2013 sauternes will last? I am particularly interested in the coutet, suduiraut and the doisy daene. Had a '29 coutet last year with bonnie and joe and it was sensational.
