  • Every wine-loving parent knows what it's like to open a bottle and then get drawn back into the battle of bedtime. Once you get back to that cold glass of Chardonnay, it's warm. Repeat over the course of a few nights, and you're eventually tossing out liters of sad, stale juice. It's not just parents, either. You can get pulled away from that pe... Read More

  • Psst... this thread is actually about the wine you opened ... just now, or approximately so.  In the light of all that, I opened a Joanin Becot 2016 (yes, another Bordeaux).  See the review on this site, if interested (you should be, why else come here?).Why?  Well, I need to drink down these 2016's... I rather overdid the buying and will have t... Read More

  • I'd actually prefer NOT to consume alcohol.  I know it's part of the wine, but if they could make a wine with no (or little) alcohol that still tastes great and hasn't lost any of the main characteristics, I'd love it.I know it's not possible.  I've had many moments where the third bottle (at a dinner for instance) is really great and by the las...

  • Check out my review of the petit chateau (but not petty wine) by Denis Dubourdeau; namely, Chateau Reynon from Cadillac, Cotes de Bordeaux.  This wine compares favourably with the nervy wines of BC or WA from the better, but smaller producers.  I'd like to stack up some BC and WA wines (and perhaps a few from OR, and ON) against these small prop...

  • Rodney, let me add my welcome,I haven;t posted here in a while.  We were on a cruise, and, then, I came back with an upper respiratory infection--it happens.  I am, pretty much, recovered and getting back in the groove.I have mentioned my brother-in-law multiple times here on Snooth.  He regularly brings me BC wines when he goes fishing down the...

  • My condolences Randy.  It must be difficult to read about wine and not be able to experience any.  You could always open something and do a sniff and swish in the mouth and then spit it out and repeat if you get itchy.  I'm hopeful the good doctor can give you the green light soon.Zuf,I did bring two bottles back.  I'll have to get photos and po...

  • Zuf, I think you're Ishmael.Welcome Rodney!  It's good to see a new person who isn't SPAM.  This forum was overrun with spam a year ago and unfortunately, not many of the regulars came back.  I noticed you had commented on a few threads that were abandoned years ago.  You can create a new topic if you like.  Or we can just roll along on this thr...

  • OK, DV - and those of you in this echo-chamber (hey! - I get to hear the beauty of me own voice!), I tried the Ferran Blanc (2016), and will likely try another red later when the steaks come out.  To me, Bordeaux is not an acquired taste (like some Italian, Spanish, Greek and those "other" places in France - aside from Burgundy and Northern Rhon...

  • ...on the other hand, DV, you could try a couple of the regular Bordeaux offerings at about 20-25 dollars; some are delicious and fresh (mostly Merlot dominated or 100% Merlot - such as Saint-Bernard).  The cheapest alternative is Chateau Pey la Tour at about 18 dollars - a perennial resident on the shelves year round.  The current vintages are ...

  • Well, DV, the Bordeaux Release is the largest ever, I think, with something like 241 product listings.  However, the advertisement was pretty much strictly on their internet site and at various locations set to offer the wines for sale.  To me, the whole operation is amateurish and stuck on the idea of first come, first served line-ups on the ea...
