I too would drink more Burgundy if finding the good stuff at affordable prices was a predictable endeavor. I too, after Bordeaux, love Barolo and Barbaresco, less so the heavy, high alcohol, central and south Italian wines, with a few exceptions, such as Oreno. Every time I taste clean Cru Beajolais, I wonder why I do not drink more of it. Cheers!

  • Champagneweathers says:

    3/27/2020 8:25:00 AM - Thanks for the reply. Yes weve searched all over the world for it and 1990 is the only one we cant find and really would like the full lineup. Cheers and have a great weekend

  • Champagneweathers says:

    3/27/2020 4:57:00 AM - Hello, Im a big Champagnelover that are on the hunt for a Piper Heidsieck Rare 1990 that i saw youve had before, so im just reaching out to hopefully find one bottle for a vertical (only bottle were missing). And Youre of course welcome to join if thats in your interest. Best Regards Jim aka Champagneweather (on Instagram)

    3/19/2020 5:18:00 AM - Thanks for missing me. We went to Los Angeles where we co-host a multi-course wine dinner with another couple every year. Surreal times: dined at two fab restaurants last week, both are now closed. On Mon we bailed on a dinner Tues night held in our honor, cancelled our flight, rented a car large enough to sleep in and bolted out like refugees. Listened to CNN the whole way, everything getting worse by the hour. On Monday we thought it was safe to buy coffee at Starbucks. By Tuesday we only went to convenience stores where we could serve ourselves. With gloves on. Thrilled to be home. Couldn't wait to greet neighbors over the fence. Turns out she has pneumonia and after three unsuccessful rounds of antibiotics, she's being tested for Covid-19. I can't believe how rapidly things are changing. We're now officially in self-quarantine. Fortunately, I have 1900 bottles of wine and 98 rolls of toilet paper. No wait, I changed one yesterday, it's 97 now. How are you doing?

  • geoffjb says:

    2/15/2020 10:37:00 AM - I'm right near Calgary. Grew up in Vancouver and went down to Birch Bay a few times camping. I always liked that area. Nice to connect with you, too. I've enjoyed reading your reviews—especially since I don't have access to a lot of Burgundies.

  • Neecies says:

    11/19/2019 12:05:00 PM - We're almost neighbors. I live in Birch Bay and am in Vancouver frequently, have many wine friends up there. And my friend--a dual CanAm who lives in my nabe but grew up in False Creek when it was affordable--DID laugh. And yes WA wines fly under most radars, but I get why. Most producers lack a track record for one, and winemakers here have had to train themselves away from the blueberry milkshakes most of them started out making.

  • KillerJones says:

    11/19/2019 11:52:00 AM - Hi there! Nice to connect with you, as well. Washington seems to fly under the radar, no? I enjoy your detailed notes on these wines. Very honest profile - that is the truth about Bordeaux. Hope your friend is not too offended by my humor... Looking forward to your future notes!

  • paulst says:

    11/7/2018 5:59:00 PM - Yes we have common interests and thanks for fanning me. Paulst

  • dsgris says:

    10/15/2018 10:28:00 PM - I love the challenge of matching various handles and cross referencing with locales.

  • jmcmchi says:

    12/14/2016 5:59:00 AM - Thanks for the Bellingham Costco advice. I'll try there when I get back from UK

  • jmcmchi says:

    12/8/2016 5:05:00 PM - at $47 go for it... I have enough unless I can return some to get your price

  • Neecies says:

    1/12/2016 2:18:00 PM - Delighted at your news. I presume yours were all from the same source? Mine are--I'll open another soon.

  • wbq8f says:

    1/12/2016 5:50:00 AM - I had another Lascombes 2000. Not all is gloom and doom -- this bottle was considerably better, still a bit austere, but interesting and complex, not washed out and oth as the last one.

  • wbq8f says:

    12/15/2015 7:34:00 AM - Sorry to hear your experience with Lascombes 2000 was not good. I've got a bunch left and hate to think they are all OTH, as you conclude.

  • winopops3 says:

    10/18/2014 2:07:00 PM - On the Evening Land Gamay: Kind of that grapey, but not overwhelming. Interested to see your thoughts on it.

  • Neecies says:

    12/12/2013 1:33:00 PM - Dark Prince: My handle? It's just what my little bro and sis called me when they were babies and couldn't pronounce my real name (which is not, but rhymes with, Denise).

  • TheDarkPrince says:

    10/14/2013 9:15:00 PM - Hey Neecies - Thanks for your feedback on my tasting note on the La Tour De Mons. What's the story on your handle name? Cheers!

  • Neecies says:

    4/29/2013 4:44:00 PM - Maso, I actually commented to a friend (also a Bordeaux-head) just a week or so ago that it's been so long since I've tasted a young Bordeaux (we age everything) that it's about time I remind myself how they begin life. And then I rail a lot about overly technical TNs, so clinical and objective they're lifeless. So a note like yours, especially written about my favorite Bordeaux producer of all, didn't just speak to me, it was almost as if you'd written it to me personally. I should become a fan of yours (not sure how to do this yet) so I can follow your notes. I have a feeling we'll agree often.

  • Brmaso says:

    4/29/2013 4:17:00 PM - Glad you liked my Pontet note. I would love to hear how your bottle tastes and I wish you a fantastic 'moment of loss' Might I recommend 05 Troplong for a similar take on the vintage, except more 'merlot-y' Fun to taste side by side if you like young blockbusters.

  • Colima74 says:

    2/5/2013 8:58:00 AM - We have but 30 wines in common. :(

  • Colima74 says:

    2/5/2013 8:57:00 AM - Welcome aboard. I look forward to seeing your CT notes!
