Re: GPL dinner featuring five vintages

I still say there was something wrong with the winemaking at GPL in 2005.
I think I scored this like 79 points.
Was this ghe wine that Jacques disliked as well?

Re: TN: TN-5 nice wines including 3 Bordeaux

Great stuff Harry. I always loved that 1982 Lynch, it is such a classic old styled claret. I still say that 1982 was the last of the old styled Lynches in the mold of the 61, 70, 78, 79, 81, and 82. Starting sonewhere around 83 and certainly by 85, the style changed. And then it changed again post 9...

It's going to be a rough year for the Democrats.

You'll recall, I called the 2012 presidential electoral vote to the exact number.
Until today, I was hoping that there might be some light for the Democrats.
But I see that pill Scott Brown has pulled even in NH, a very bad harbinger for the Democrats nationwide.

Re: 2012 Jadot Clos des Ursules v. 2010 La Fleur de Bouard

This really is no contest, the Jadot is in a different class.
Of course, the next bottle should be uncorked in about 25 years.
Great strength, structure, and complexity, best Jadot Clos des Ursules ever?

Re: 2012 Jadot Clos des Ursules v. 2010 La Fleur de Bouard

Round 1 goes to the Jadot.
Youthful Burgundy mouth-puckeringness at first, but it is clearly a wine of depth and structure.
The Boddeaux a little slow out of the gate.

Thursday night dinner at my dad's house... Just three weeks from his 90th birthday, we're gonna have a big shindig, we'll have to pull out some of the good stuff.

Tonight... Let's get it on, baby.... Young Burgundy versus young "Bordeaux!"

Yet another reason to love Chasse Spleen.

My goal is to read Proust in French next summer but my French is very weak.
I have no idea what this English translation on the back of the 2010 Chasse Spleen means, Alex or somebody, can you enlighten me?
It's awesome, though, nothing slick here, this is old school, I love it!

Have there been any great Bordeaux wines since 1989?

It seems like there is nothing that has matched the heights in character, uniqueness and quality since the golden decade of the 1980s. Oh, sure, winemaking has "improved" and more "quality" is being produced across the board. But it doesn't seem like those big, age worthy, comple...

Re: 2010 Chasse Spleen revisited... A JimHow kind of wine?

I like my Bordeaux young, Carlos.
I also like it aged.
This was more in the name of science, to try to extrapolate how 2010 Chasse Spleen might age over the next 20 years.
It passed the grade, I'm going to get a case at $35 per bottle.

Only 7,451 steps today per my iPhone app, well short of the recommended minimum 10,000. That's 3.3 miles over 1:22 hours of walking. So....
