Re: TN: Château Palmer Vertical

Is Palmer overrated?
The 1983 and 1999 were great but I'm trying to remember other vintages that really knocked me over.
Then again I can't say I've had enormous experience with this wine.

Re: Back in the USA, sipping a lovely '12 Haut Bergey.

It's hard to say, Marc, there are a lot of people out there who don't like me, a lot related to my law practice and a lot of people really pissed off over my opposition to this whole stupid municipal merger issue. I was really impressed with the 2012 Haut Bergey last night. I agree with you on the 2...

Back in the USA, sipping a lovely '12 Haut Bergey.

So I had a great week in London, and then I come back to more bricks through my windows at my law office, this time they got both of them.
I was following all the insanity while I was gone and I had to go where they've actually had terrorist attacks to feel safer.

Re: 2014 Leoville Barton... outstanding!

Hmmm. I guess I would NOT compare it to 2000, 2004, 1996, 1990, etc. The tannins are round, not rugged. But I wouldn't call it elegant either. Of course, I don't think you can call ANY vintage of LB elegant. I'd say somewhere in the mold of 1989, 2001, 2006, etc. I REALLY liked it, so much so that I...
