Re: Happy Independence Day

For the first time ever, I went out and bought fireworks.
Quite a collection.
Hopefully we won't burn the place down!

Re: Chateau De Ferrand 1998 has been opened

Very nicely done Comte.
I know it wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but I personally thought it was a nice solid wine. I liked their attitude.

Re: "Cooked" wine. Urban legend?

The temps here in Maine have been around 70ish, I think I'm going to be good.
Right now my package is in Secaucus, NJ, then it will be headed for Mass. and Maine overnight with temps at 57F, and will be out for delivery by midday with temps at around 77F.

Re: "Cooked" wine. Urban legend?

I have my reasons, of course, for asking that the wines be shipped in mid-summer. Four of the bottles are 2010 Cantemerle. One bottle is 2010 Brunello Argiano And one is a special bottle. The order was taken into UPS custody last night (Tuesday, June 30th) at 8:01pm. It was processed at Landover, MD...

Re: "Cooked" wine. Urban legend?

I will tell you whether a wine shipped today from MacArthur's in DC for delivery in Maine on Thursday is cooked. It has been nice but not too hot up here in Maine, not sure what it's going to be like up and down the east coast tomorrow and Thursday.

Re: "Cooked" wine. Urban legend?

What is the chemistry of the "cooking" of wine?
Has every wine that has sat in a 90F UPS truck for 8 hours been "cooked"?
What about at 89 degrees? Or 85? 82? 80? Is it only a little cooked then?
What chemically happens to the wine when it is "cooked"?

"Cooked" wine. Urban legend?

I just had six bottles shipped to me. I've never been concerned about my wines being "cooked" by heat from midsummer shipment. Another wine myth, I say. What do you say? Does the "cooking" of wine exist? Have there been any empirical studies of this?

Re: The 1994 Chateau Angelus has been unplugged...

I have the world's biggest fan of Angelus coming to my house this summer, I'll have to uncork a bottle from a renowned vintage and match it up against some fine northern Medocs to see how it compares.

Re: Celebrating a historic couple days with 2004 La Lagune.

I see Rand Paul has taken Hound's position that government should have no role in marriage.
If we could only cut Rand Paul in half I'd consider voting for him.

Re: BDX themed lunch in West London

Great report. I was a big fan of the 2005 Brane Cantenac when it was first released. I have 6 bottles that have been sitting there, my sense back then that this was a big 2005, interesting that you describe it as mid-weight and charming. I'll have to check one out and see where it's at.

2004 Clerc Milon: 10-15 years of aging about right?

The 2004 Clerc Milon is in such a great place. It has now gone through its adolescent period. At age 11, it is drinking beautifully. I last had this back around 2007, when it first hit the shelves. I loved it then, and bought a case. I'm glad I did. It has a cool, vibrant purple/ruby color. It is fr...
