  • A few months ago, I was minding my own business, mostly, when I received a phone call from my good friends here at Snooth, wondering if I would be interested in heading to Bordeaux for a few days and write a story about my experiences. The trip would focus solely on sweet wines from the region, or what wine types frequently refer to as “dessert ... Read More

  • I have a good memory and as with most people it is particularly astute when recorded painful moments in one’s life. Take for example 1994, when I finally broke into my stash of benchmark 1982 Barolo. We’re talking Marcarini, and Cascina Francia, Monprivato and Vietti. There were six bottles in all, and I carefully decanted them before cooking di... Read More

  • Blind tasting is the great equalizer. When you taste wines blind, you learn what you actually think of a wine, as opposed to what you expect to think. With this in mind, I assembled a set of eight wines to taste blind with one of my regular tasting groups. Having tasted some of the wines previously, I was going in with a bit of a stacked deck. I...

  •  Hello all!I am proud to be a wine lover, but an amateur at best. To improve my knowledge I have been studying (God bless my university's library!) as much as I can about regions, varietals, etc. through books and whatnot. Recently, I came across a sub-region in the Bordeaux appellation called Sauternes. The way my book (Zraly's wine course...) ... Read More

  • Fourth Growth Bordeaux, Grand Cru Classe en 1855, from Saint-Julien: Chateau Beychevelle, 1974. Bought 1981. When the spirit descended on the group and they spoke in tongues. A powerful wine can help mere mortals approximate this experience without explicit divine intervention. In my case, the Epiphany involved spring, the last year of law schoo... Read More

  • A thread on another category inspired me to look this one up and write it out, because it's from Ben Franklin.  Who was pretty smart, and woulda been a Snoother had he lived to these days of the internet.  Well before Mr. T. Jefferson went to Paris, Franklin already had a great collection of wine, over a thousand bottles (the biggest percentage ... Read More

  • Simon Hoggart reviewed Roger Scruton's book I Drink Therefore I am: A Philospher's Guide in The Spectator (not WS). He had this to say: "How do you use words to evoke a flavour, an aroma, an evanescent scent? Do you simply say 'this is delicious, you should try it'? Or do you try to find the words? Sometimes the effect can be banal and even hila... Read More

  • Château Calon-Segur St. Estephe Very Top-Shoulder Fill Very Lightly Bin-Soiled Label 1982

    Snoothrank:

    In my lifetime I have had my fair share of the Bourdeaux collection, but none quite compare to the exquitely divine flavor of Chateau Calon Segur. Just the right amount of sweetness with a small amount of tang as the undertone, this fine wine is perfect for any occasion; ranging from a formal dress-coded party, to even a Saturday night alone, th...
