Re: Is 2010 Cantenac Brown the wine of the year?

I agree with Comte that 2010L may be the greatest vintage ever, but be careful, they are shutting down hard.

Re: Is 2010 Cantenac Brown the wine of the year?

I will be curious to see how the 95 turned out, CV, I remember it being extremely tannic circa 1999 or so at a sidewalk cafe in NYC.

Re: BWE France 15 Chateau visits

My only two requests are Lynch and Pontet Canet, otherwise I'll follow the crowd.
But, as Harry said, it might be good to hit one of our BWE wine of the year favorites, in the spirit of our common man roots.

The Argentina Experiment

I know nothing about Argentine wines. So I went on the PJ's website. I picked 12 wines from several recent vintages. I know nothing about any of these wines or any of these vintages. They are all priced between $10 and $26. I picked 12 wines that were rated at least 90 points by either WA, WE, WS, I...

Re: Denver BWE OFFLINE...88 Bordeaux

Is 1988 the greatest vintage ever produced in Bordeaux? I mean, when you factor in everything we look for in classic Bordeaux. 1988 Bordeaux is like 1970s Major League Baseball, like the '75 World Series... The last show of greatness before money, steroids, free agency, greed took over to ruin every...

"A Year in Burgundy"

A fun little movie.
Nothing great, but definitely makes you want to visit Burgundy.
There's always a poignant beauty, a beautiful sadness to the hills of Bourgogne.
The fragility of the seasons, of life.
Streams live on Netflix.
Two thumbs up.

Re: Quest for Dal Forno Romano Amarone.

I was thinking of buying a 2010 Sassacaia as well.

Re: Dinner with Tim

I love those old pre-1983 Lynches with their tobacco, coffee, and leather.
I have a 3L of 1996 Leoville Poyferre, where is this wine in its development?
So corkage is pretty unlimited in Paris I take it?

Is 2010 Cantenac Brown the wine of the year?

It's a potential for me, sipping on it tonight, a bruiser, very deep, will age 40+ years but true to Margaux.
It's getting to be that time of year. What is your 2014 BWE wine of the year so far?

As I have reported here before, my single greatest experience with a wine was at Saraceno Restaurant in the North End of Boston back in the late 1990s. Our waiter recommended to us a bottle of 1988 Dal Forno Romano Amarone. It is one of the very few wines I have ever rated 100 points. It literally b...

Re: The 2012 Caymus 40th Anniversary has been uncorked.

I'm going to make a bold statement: I like this wine... As long as you drink it with a sirloin steak. Which, I realize, is a bit of a limitation, but not an unreasonable limitation. This puppy will benefit from another 2-5 years under its belt. It is definitely serious stuff. Let it age another 3-4 ...
