I wonder if she can afford 2015 Haut Brion. Hey, I'm sure she's worth it….

Re: TN: 2002 Gloria - UPDATED w/ a DC haul bottle

That 2002 Gloria is a stunner, I appreciate you're directing me to it Patrick, and I'm really kicking myself for only buying 5 bottles of it in DC.

I had a 2002 Cos from the DC heist last night, it took forever to open up but once it did it was a classic.

Re: Looking for 2005 Dom Perignon at NH liquor stores

Gerry the Nashua store told me they have the 2005 Dom in stock, I'll make a run down there after July 1st, they're doing their annual $25 grift certificate for all purchases over $150 deal. Thanks anyway. The 2005 Dom is real nice.

Re: TN 2010 Cantemerle

Very nicely done indeed Jacques. 2010 Cantemerle would have run away with WOTY honors but it was at a disadvantage due to having already received the award for the 2005 vintage.

2012 Barde-Haut is now back in stock at MacArthur's for $26.99, an excellent deal.

Re: 1986 Pichon Lalande

I don't think too many people were kicking Jay's 1986 Mouton out of bed at the Thursday night dinner in Sonoma in 2006, still perhaps the most epic finish I have ever experienced, rivaled only by the '89 Lynch ad '90 Margaux.

The seductive cocoa and milk chocolate of 2005 Barde-Haut

Adding to my previous very high impressions of this stellar wine: This wine has a very appealing cocoa, milk chocolate element to it that I didn't necessarily pick up on the first go around. Lots of sediment too in the end. Otherwise, I repeat everything I said in my previous review, about the earth...

Yes we have a lot of government pension double dipping going on here as well.
They'll have to adress that soon, or our state and local governments will go bankrupt.
Heck, they are already.

Re: Montrose tasting in Copenhagen - 16/6/2016

Wow! La Dame de Montrose is a wine I've been wanting to try, from 2009 and 2010. This seems like the real deal. The 2009 is available in half bottles for $29, I think I'll buy a few, as well as maybe a bottle or two of the 2010 for $59.

Sure, you can include the middle men in my complaint about greed. This $524 price for Haut Brion is EP, I wonder what Parker thinks about it Does he still post over on his site? Has he offered any opinions about 2015 pricing? As I said, I don't know what HB should be priced at but at $524 the estate...

Very good memory Danny!
That was many years ago.
I was going to comment on that but didn't want to dampen Arv's enthusiasm.
I remember having it once when it was very young and thought it was a supermarket level wine.
I seem to remember Jacques having it as well, I think he liked it.
