    1/19/2019 4:29:00 AM - I think I'll lay some down.

    10/2/2017 12:32:00 AM - Hey Slimes !!! The RD will stay on this amazing stage for a minimum of 10 years. But its so good now that I dont see room for further improvement. Its so good !!! Drink

  • BenBlu says:

    11/10/2014 3:37:00 AM - Hello - good question. This was not bought by the glass but rather by the bottle. However I only ended up with a glass as we were a group of people...

  • Lord of the Bottles says:

    10/10/2014 5:33:00 AM - Thanks for the advice, will post TNs when I get on.

  • Lord of the Bottles says:

    10/8/2014 9:34:00 AM - Hi - thanks for your Nyetimber notes, which I found very helpful. I am choosing between the 1996 and 1998 which I am able to locate some bottles. I'm not a sparkling expert but I tend to like my champers aged, light, with toast and butter, but generous fruit. Sort of seems a combo of these 2 vintages? The 1992 is probably more up my street but is sold out...

  • torciaumana says:

    3/20/2014 4:52:00 AM - Ref. Bollinger GA 2002. It was degorged on July 2011. I believe it wil improve over the next 5-10 years. It is really really young now.

  • rcrisa says:

    1/6/2014 7:04:00 AM - Ref.: NV Krug Grande Cuvee - I do not know how old the bottle was. It was served by our hostess and I was not able to have a look at it. But I believe it was rather recent. Nose and palate were sublime, with much buttery brioche and yellow fruit. I think it is peaking right now and should be well savored. As it has become a personal favorite, I gave it such a high score.

  • AllRed says:

    12/16/2013 6:44:00 AM - Re: NV Charles Heidsieck- this was a 2012 disgorgement, and I think it is drinking well now. My experience has been that this can easily go 4-5 years after disgorgemen though, if you like a little bit more nuttiness and sherry qualities.

  • Luckyb says:

    12/7/2013 1:14:00 PM - Re ch spleen 2005 - as you have a few I would enjoy one with a good meal and know they can only get better! Fine wine (via wine searcher) has a couple of cases of mags and at the price I'd be happy to take another case! Decant for an hour recommend and stand upright for a few days before. Really solid wine for the price great value.

  • ubercuvee says:

    12/7/2013 1:03:00 PM - Sorry - I brought the GA 2002 to a restaurant so don't have the empty... and the rest from that batch are in my cellar 200mi away. In any case, most of the 2002 prestige cuvees aren't in a great place right now [well, except Dom Ruinart 2002 which is seemingly always in a great place] - like the Dom Perignon crew say "drink at 7 years or 14" :-)

  • Wine_lvr says:

    10/29/2013 1:14:00 PM - Hi, I expect the disgorgement on the Bollinger GA 2002 Rose in 2011, but I recall no info on the bottle. Reason why I suggest to wait is not that its too young at the moment, it is more when I compared it to the Bollinger GA 1999 in the glass next it the 99 felt more balanced. So the 2002 is already greay now but I expect it to be amazing in 3-5 years. So no worry to pop the cork now! Cheers

    9/26/2013 8:15:00 AM - Thx. I always find it interesting to see the price differences between nations.

    9/26/2013 7:37:00 AM - Hey there, not sure if my comment to your comment will reach your radar, so a copy...Also fyi - we have Provincial run Liquour Stores as well as private wine stores in every province - prices all about the same. Wine laws vary across the Country as do prices (+/- 5$). I think it is safe to say that in CAN, wine is generally more expensive than US or in UK - but its all relative i guess. For what it's worth, 11 pounds is like 24$ CAN. Pretty much standard "entry level" prices around here are 15-20$ for a decent vino.
