Community Tasting Note

  • BuzzzzOff Likes this wine: 93 points

    December 7, 2016 - Our friend "insisted" on bringing this to Pierre Gagnaire's Hong Kong restaurant last night...how could we say no!? Neither could Pierre as he joined us for a small sip!

    Still barely legal yet luscious and showing subtle hints of toasted brioche, caramel and that ever so desired yeasty nose. Give her another 5 years, and you will be proposing marriage!

    12/31/16, 9:50 AM - Greetings BuzzzzOff,
    Since my funds are somewhat limited I was thinking of buying two RD 2002 Bollinger and two Krug 2002. I love dough and some yeast. Should I buy less of one or the other. Seems everyone likes the Krug better. (All Krug???) I can afford to buy one RD now and taste it just for the fun of it.

    1/1/17, 2:50 AM - Thanks Buzzzoff- I always appreciate your thoughts and will look up that other bottle. Must be good;

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/1/17, 6:15 PM - Jacques Selosse rocks...you will not be disappointed. Pierre Peters also impressive. Salon, of course, always a winner!

  • vintage1949 commented:

    Which Pierre Peters are you talking about -as they have many editions? I think I had this before but not sure which one. Dave

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/3/17, 4:56 AM - We recently tried NV Pierre Péters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Perle du Mesnil and NV Pierre Péters Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Cuvée de Réserve. Great value and both tres yummy!

  • vintage1949 commented:

    1/3/17, 5:08 AM - Shall give them a try. Dave

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/3/17, 11:39 PM - 100% Chardonnay, of course, so very different to the blends. Having said that, a good Chardonnay with some bubbles served in a white Burgundy glass is, well, heaven!

  • vintage1949 commented:

    1/4/17, 2:27 AM - I fully agree😀.

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/4/17, 7:51 PM - We believe the alphabet and humankind would be best served if "C" was the first letter ;-)

  • vintage1949 commented:

    1/5/17, 1:49 AM - Interesting comment. Yes that would eliminate the harsh name calling. Or the alphabet should star with W. grin

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/5/17, 5:47 PM - We would happily accede to your suggestion of starting with "W" ;-)

  • vintage1949 commented:

    1/6/17, 6:10 AM - Hi BuzzzzOff,
    Either way smart move.

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/6/17, 7:44 PM - Quite! Yesterday at Joey's Place (Robuchon), we had the following:

    NV Maurice Vesselle, Grand Cru, Brut, Cuvee Reserve

    2009 Puligny-Montrachet, Les Perrieres, Henri Boillot

    2009 Puligny-Montrachet, Les Combettes, Jacques Prieur

    2010 Puligny-Montrachet, Les Folatieres, Etienne Sauzet

    The Cs rued the day!!!

  • vintage1949 commented:

    1/7/17, 12:16 AM - Good for you. Sounds like a most interesting tasting.

  • BuzzzzOff commented:

    1/7/17, 8:09 PM - Long, liquid lunch at what we consider to be one of the best Frog restaurants on the planet...and we have been to a few ;-)
