    7/6/2014 10:50:00 AM - Sundbyberg - Thanks for the note! I know I have not been posting much recently as life has been extremely busy. I hope to post more shortly. I have a huge backlog of tasting notes I need to enter. Anyway, glad to hear you will be going to SF. You will love it. Let me think about some recommendations and get back to you. There are lots of great places.

Might go to San Fransisco with some Friends. Any wineyards or restaurants you may recommend in the surroundings or on the road between SF and LA?

    8/22/2013 8:19:00 AM - I'm thinking about the 2006 Agrapart Blanc de Blancs 'Mineral' - any thoughts?

  • Seth Rosenberg says:

    7/27/2013 7:46:00 AM - You're right - I got the 02 Pol Roger's through PC. I don't buy from them much, but I figured for those prices, I might as well go for it and see. I also got the 04 Comtes for $100 and the 04 DP for $100 as well. I used to buy from PC a lot when I lived out in Cali and only had trouble a few times. I passed on the 04 Vilmart Cuvee Coeur for $108 on sale a Zachy's a while back - I know that is a low price, but I was buying Selosse and 96 Henriot at killer prices and figured if I wanted to pick the Vilmart up later for $120 then I could.

    7/12/2013 8:08:00 AM - Hi Seth, the biggest difference between the 375 and 750 ML sizes is that the 375 tend to sit in the supply chain longer in some cases and are slightly more risky in terms of provenance. So the chances of getting a bad bottle is higher with the 375's. However, if you trust your source, then there is no real reason not to buy the 375's if the price is better than the 750's. I found some 375's in the $50 range a while back and really enjoyed them. I would still buy 750's or magnums if you plan to cellar the wine for many years.

    5/13/2013 11:39:00 AM - Dear Krugman Following will be open from lunch though out dinner (bottles are listed alphabetic): Bollinger La Grande Année 2002 Bollinger Special Cuvée Brut Rosé NV Dom Perignon 2002 Krug Champagne Grande Cuvée Brut NV Nicolas Feuillatte Pinot Noir Grand Cru 2002 Pierre Gimonnet Champagne Special Club Blanc de Blancs Brut 2002 Will you be so kind to give your input to in what order the bottles shall be opened. Possible also why :-)

    3/14/2013 8:32:00 AM - Thanks for the feed back. I will be monitoring the price on Bollinger GA 2004. The Danish Bollinger AD (importer) normaly have special price on 12 bottles from time to time. I got the GA 2002 to under $100 including 25% Danish Tax.

  • Krugman says:

    3/11/2013 11:44:00 AM - BeoApple - Thanks for the note. Glad you like the Bollinger GA 2002, it is a great one. The 2004 GA, which has just been released, is also supposed to be great as well. I can't wait to try it. Overall, I would not try to compare the 2002 GA with the DP 2002, since both have very different styles. The Bollinger is an oxidative style, while the DP is reductive. However, my opinion is that it will be very difficult for the DP to reach the same level as the Bollinger GA over time. In terms of the DP 2002, I was also relatively dissapointed in the last bottle I had (almost 2 years ago). At that time it was extremely closed and not giving much of anything. After consuming that bottle, I made promise to myself that I would wait at least 3-4 years to try another bottle. However, if you like the DP style and want a bottle that is really singing, you should try the 1996 Oenotheque. That is a very special bottle.

    3/10/2013 5:01:00 AM - Dear Krugman, I have read quite a few of your reviews and found them very interesting. Especially your review of Bollinger GA 2002 wich also is on of my favourite Champagnes. I drink a bottle of DP2002 som weeks back and most say I was very disappointed. Not near the level of the Bollinger GA 2002. Can one bottle by bad/flat? Would you expect the DP2002 to develop more over time than the Bollinger GA2002? All the best BeoApple

    2/12/2013 2:57:00 PM - Yme - Thanks for the suggestion on Boulard. I will be on the lookout for it.

  • Yme says:

    2/12/2013 1:39:00 AM - The Billecart Salmon rose you recently wrote a note on is also my wife's favourite. A pretty decent grower's champagne we currently enjoy and recommend are the wines from Francis Boulard. His sister has her own champagne house which produces decent champagne but we prefer his. Take care.

  • Krugman says:

    3/20/2012 7:51:00 AM - I have been tasting lots of champagne recently. Some of my favorites have been from Selosse, Camile Saves, Vouette et Sorbee and Philipponnat. Please feel free to list any of your most recent favorite bottles and let me know if you have any questions and/or recommendations. Thanks, Weston (Krugman)
