Re: ***DC '18: March 22-25***

The Charlie Palmer Alcove room is reserved for Saturday night, March 24. Festivities begin at 6 PM. We'll start with passed hors d'oeuvres and Champagne. The Champagne is resting in my cellar: MV Krug 164eme and 2006 Taittinger Comtes. Dinner at 7 PM or 7:30 PM depending on whether we do a blind tas...

Re: Anyone ever heard of Dauprat, a Pauillac?

Re: President Trump

Oh I don’t know. It was an aberration of a campaign. A child molester lost by a whole 1%. Next year two thirds of Senators up for re-election are Democrats. It’s going to be a very difficult year to pick up net seats in the Senate. I think this is right. 48% voted for Moore. He carried the white fe...

Re: Boy, I've been sick as a dog...

If DM is for dextromethorphan, it’s also a cough suppressant. Very useful if the cough is getting the better of you. I use just the guaifenesin alone as an expectorant without the cough suppressant to help get the mucus out during the day if the cough isn’t too bad. I also like a humidifier in the b...

Re: President Trump

Welcome aboard Felix. I agree that Bush, W in particular with his Midfle East wars, is responsible for far more human suffering and death than Trump. The Bushes had 12 years between them. Trump has only had 1. Give him time. The potentially saving grace with Trump is that he is so overtly vile and s...

Re: President Trump

I can see Trump finishing his term. No way he gets impeached and removed. Even if the House miraculously went D in 2018 and impeached him, it would take 2/3 in the Senate for removal. No way Ds end up with 67 Senate seats, and Rs will continue to put party over country. He’ll need to be indicted and...

Re: Premier Cru files for bankruptcy

I have no idea how a statute of limitations would work in a situation like this. If the trustee is claiming that fraudulent conveyance went back many years but continued with ongoing purchases, maybe a statute of limitations doesn’t run out.

Re: Premier Cru files for bankruptcy

See PM. The trustee has been aggressive in pursuing not only straightforward claw backs for preferential treatment, but also in pursuing paybacks for fraudulent conveyance going back years and using math that doesn’t add up.

Re: TN: 2012 Château Malescot St. Exupéry (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Margaux)

I’ve only had the 2005 that I can recall, and I liked it. Agree with the comments that it was not rustic, but still of Margaux. A good demonstration that fruit is not necessarily a flaw.

Re: What Gives a Wine Length

I like your answer Jacques. The same combination that can make a great wine can also make a wine of great length. And that combo is terroir and winemaking skill. I might add vineyard management skill as well since sometimes that can differ from winemaking skill.

Re: What Gives a Wine Length

Terroir is an interesting answer. Great terroir can produce wines of great length but also short insipid failures and everything in between. It depends weather and on decisions made in the vineyard and winery. So it might be a necessary but not a sufficient factor. Are there any wines of great lengt...

Re: What Gives a Wine Length

Like Danny I also think ripe fruit is a necessary component but not the entire answer. Maybe dry extract or tannins or something. A winemaker would probably be able to give a better answer.
