    5/9/2015 11:11:00 AM - Thanks Sourdough for the head-up on the Marniquet. 95 is a good year in Champagne (and our wedding year) so I'll check into it. I wish we could have joined you guys at Buchanan - it sounded like a great time. Our son had rugby up in Dallas that weekend.

No tasting reports from the store or anyone I know yet but it is supposed to be similar to the 1989. And 1995 was a really good year for Burgundy and Champagne so it should be very good. Too bad you didn't join us at Buchanan. We had some fabulous Champagnes (and other wines but the Champs really were particularly spectacular)

If you ever want to see Northern Italy like we did with a Piedmont native let me know. We are huge Piedmont fans and have traveled there twice (and would go again in a heartbeat....). Take care!

We love your picture, my wife and I honeymooned in Tuscany and we'd love to see northern Italy. That picture motivates! Best to you. Stealthman

    12/21/2013 6:39:00 PM - Hi Winetex! Given your profile I am guessing you became a fan as a result of my notes on the Marniquet 1989 Millesme. It is available at Spec's and the store on MoPac just north of 183 has some. (I got two bottles there Friday.) I am in the process of remodeling a house in Austin and should move there next summer! Salud!
