Is Bordeaux supposed to have a laxative effect?

Post #1  Postby Joe B » March 15th 2013, 1:38pm

Or maybe it's specific to certain Chateaux?

Admittedly, I have never drunk bdx until last night so I'm kind of curious?

:o

I'm a bit worried about trying much more of this.

It does to me...that is, more so than just the regular day to day regularity. Most red wines seem to have a laxative effect, however, not specifically Bordeaux to me.

I feel like I just ate a bacon wrapped hot dog from a street vendor in Tiajuana.

Ill be needing an IV soon if it keeps up. Especially if I go for another glass tonight to see how it tastes on day two.

Is this a really old Bordeaux or fairly young? I've noticed this effect with really old red wines but never with anything reasonably aged.

Seriously, you guys? Seriously?

Shortly after "The French Paradox" aired on 60 Minutes, health stores started selling reservatrol capsules. Turns out they do have a mild laxative effect - but the reservatrol dose is equivalent to 500 glasses of red wine. A single bottle of Bordeaux (that you didn't even finish) just doesn't cut it.

So you've got a case of the green apple two-step today. And you drank some Bordeaux last night. What makes you think the latter caused the former? As opposed to a multitude of other well-recognized possibilities?

Correlation does not equal causation.

Well I usually have 500 glasses of red wine, so for me, it's a legit scenario

I had the bdx last night after ham and cheese sandwich. This morning I had home brewed coffee with a granola bar from nature valley followed by a banana. Didn't feel bad but not good til around noon. Then

BAM. Been to the washroom five times now.

So all the fun-poking aside: I think I've had similar effects a couple of times in the past and have always put them down to highly reductive red wine (definitely not Bdx - i.e. I think it's independent of grape or region). So it's probably something to do with the additives in the wine or the winemaking - rather than being Bdx. Otherwise, one might suspect that China will be up sh!t creek without a paddle soon (oh i couldn't resist...)

I would suspect the coffee before the wine. I'd also be checking the stemware, silverware and dishes for soap. Something may not have been rinsed properly and Joy or Ivory are the best for a quick and lasting cleansing of the colon. [bullshit.gif]

This has got to be the best thread of 2013. Buying Bordeaux causes anal leakage because you can't help wonder why you paid the case price for a great Califorinia Cab for a single bottle of dirt-tasting tannic wine that they say needs years to be ready. You know why they want you to wait 12-20 years to drink it? It's so you forget you paid big money for the bottle of swill by the time you open it. Instead you kick yourself for waiting so long and think its you instead of a bottle of wine never intended to be drunk.

So, avoid the flatulence and buy California.

LOL [cheers.gif] I would suspect the coffee and banana - both have some mild laxative effect.

The 2008 D'issan I had last year did not have a laxative effect on me. I did have headaches after drinking young white Grand Cru Burgundies on a few occasions though.

Or a similar problem in Burgundy, where one gets flagilence from drinking the wines of Flagey-echezeaux? Perhaps the gentleman from California meant "flatulence"...
