2012 trotanoy

I haven't seen this for sale yet in the states but it is available in England as futures. Just wondering if anyone know if it will be available in the US. If it won't, how hard is it to purchase from an English vendor in terms of protecting the wine from temperature extremes and vibration during tra...

Re: TN 2000 D'Issan

Yes and I purchased a case based on your reviews and the price was right. I didn't see a mention of camphor in your reviews of the 2010 that I found to be quite strong in the 2005 of which I also have a case but no matter, maybe it developed secondarily. In any event it seems that all the reviewers ...

Jeff,

Do you have the list of the wines to be shown at the 2014 UGC? 2010 was a very strong year so I am not expecting fireworks this time around but there may be some surprises. Thanks David newman

Re: TN 2000 Calon Segur

Just bought a case because I love the 2005. Tasted the 2010 from barrel and it was really difficult at that point for me to tell what was going on but I am just trusting the professional tasters notes. I don't want to purchase a case five years from now and worry about the provenance as I can provid...

Re: Duhart

Thanks Jeff, I havent ever had it but was just asking because of the high rating and my quest to find pockets of value (so my own pockets don't shrink). Based on what you are saying I probably would pass anyway because I tend to like the wines you rate highly. Speaking of dense palates, I just bough...

Re: 2013 dry and sweet white bordeaux

It wouldnt have a cursor in the name and email fields. As i had mentioned to you at last years post turkey day party, my first love in wine was d'YQuem and only much later did reds become appealing and have provided not only hedonistic pleasure but also intellectual stimulation. I have tasted mostly...

2013 dry and sweet white bordeaux

Hi jeff,

I couldnt enter my name and password for the de fieuzal article. Based on what you have gleaned so far could the 2013 dry whites be as good or better than 2012? What about sauternes? Thanks. Dn

Jeffrey,

Had you tasted both wines? What did you like more about the trot? Did you notice anything about their finishes? Have you tasted previous years of trotanoy?

2012 trotanoy vs. 2012 La fleur petrus

Its quite interesting not having tasted these two wines yet but having read both the american and british reviews. Seems that the american reviewers are rating the trotanoy higher. Is that because its a richer wine? The british rate the la fleur petrus higher and note that it has a longer finish tha...

blake,

how did these compare with burgundies? were there specific wines that approximated burgundy and have potential longevity?
pinots from the us tend to be heavy to me and lack the finesse and complexity of their french counterpart. thanks
