Re: 2014 vintage - it's looking good!

We've had a spectacular weekend weather-wise in Maine.
In fact there was something on the internet that declared Lewiston, Maine, as having the best weather in the world on Friday afternoon.
Maine, the Pine Tree State, how we love you so....

Re: BWE France '15

My only request is to visit Lynch Bages and Pontet Canet.
And as Mr. Vino asked earlier, it would be good to have the option of not going for the whole week.
I'm planning on going for the whole week but the vicissitudes of life may work against that.

Re: M&D Fine Wines in NJ...

Two thumbs up on the service from M&D Wines in NJ.
Easy, prompt service, got some 2010 Fleur Cardinale, Haut Bergey, and La Fleur de Bouard at great prices.

BWE France '15: Week of May 18, 2015.

I've been out of the loop. This is my understanding of where we are at: 1. Timmy, Comte and Alex are willing and able to take the lead in organizing across the pond. 2. Stefan and Tom are willing to work on things here in the U.S., collect money, etc. 3. My assignment is to call Jeff Leve to see if ...

Re: 2010 La Vielle Cure has been uncorked.

It's okay, but it's not Bordeaux.
For $25 it's okay, but 1996 or 2002 Duhart Milon or Leoville Poyferre it is not.

2010 La Vielle Cure has been uncorked.

14%. Deep black/purple color.
Kind of gross on the palate, but it's early.
I've never been big on this wine.

Re: 89 Lynch for BD?

I have one 750 and a 375, CV, which I will drink in my old age. I think the appeal of MichaelP's inventory is the OWC. I would think he could get well over $300 per bottle for that case. As Musigny pointed out, there are people hooked into the internet and everywhere else who will outbid practically...

Re: M&D Fine Wines in NJ...

Lol... You read my mind.
Indeed, I ordered 5 bottles plus one bottle of 2010 La Fleur de Bouard at like $34.
They also apparently have 2010 Haut Bergey for $25.

I'll report on my experience.

89 Lynch has gotten a little priced out of my range these days, I have that one half bottle left and that 750 that was given to me at the last convention.

Rambling thoughts while coping with IPhone changes.

Can someone tell me why Apple can't change their operating system without fucking up all of my settings? They just have this arrogant assumption that all of us understand this shit. I have the computer intellect of a three year old... And I'm literally not even kidding. There's just no comprehension...

Re: HWSRN: 2003 Pontet Canet is "spectacular."

I have a case each of the 1996, 2003, and 2004, and a 3L of 2003.
And a 6L of 1994.
So you think I should drink up those 1996s?
