  • Chateau Ripeau Grand Cru Classe Saint Emilion 2005

Chateau Ripeau is one of the original Grand Cru Classe producers.My bottle consists of 70%merlot a... Read More

  • Just a quick note on Blue Mountain and Burrowing Owl.  The latter did produce some of the best Syrah and Pinot Noir around the turn of the century (15-25 years back, in other words) but its star as a top flight producer has been eclipsed somewhat.  Blue Mountain is now run by the son who has altered the style of Daddy somewhat - in some ways for...

  • Yep, I think you got it.  If the wine has good Premier Cru perfume (and some from even the earlier reviled Bear Flag State can have this... if you want to pay up, of course), elegance and balance, and is not too, too fruit-heavy (read: if I want Merlot, I'll buy Merlot, thank-you very much).And the grape just does not lend itself to easy vinifyi...

  • No Jack, not damaged taste buds. There's a lot of bad PN around. It's like Merlot a few years ago. It became popular, a lot was planted, and in a few years there will probably be less. There really are many different versions all over so you just need to find out what you like.I rag on it a little because people in the US who haven't grown up dr... Read More

  • I am assuming this is the first edition of the Spectator of the year, but I'll look for it on the magazine stand and take a look at what is showing on the site for the last couple.BTW, the snail reference may be somewhat apropos as yet, but the quality of some garagiste wines on the island are shockingly good - although the acidity factor must (...

  • I'll try that link, DV, but I fear it will ask for lucre (not that I cannot afford it, but you know...).  But on the topic of BC wines, I tried a Rathjen Cellars Auxerrois 2018 from Vessel Wines (out your way, and you will reject my review being an inveterate (incorrigible?) red wine man).This guy Mike Rathjen is an amazing winemaker.  I have ye...
