Alan, I was waiting for you to arrive with a bad taste urologist pun about not wanting to drink from Myglands.
it honestly occurred to me! For a rare occasion, I showed restraint. Unlike when one opens a “Chateniere,” probably the worst name for a vineyard I can ever remember—Myglands is tame.

Re: Is there a lead concern with neck foil?

I recall 89 as the last year but I think that means wines capsuled in 89 . . . as noted, prudent to clean off the lip of bottles from 80s and earlier before pouring.

Re: Burgundy prices - valuation - investment

In my opinion, it’s simply tight supply and demand curves tipped by Asian demand and fueled by more published Burgundy critics than ever before. Twenty years ago, there were Tanzer and Coates, few using Parker-Rovani for Burgundy. Now, with Meadows, Gilman, Galloni, Kolm, and others coupled with ele...

TN: 2005 PY Colin-Morey Meursault Charmes

a bit alcoholic but a nice bottle. Lovely nose of flowers and citrus, good density and a soft texture, lemon drops, balanced and long with some minerals but no nuttiness. Speaks of the vintage with the alcohol and a bit of fatness.

They have owned the vineyard for quite a while but only actually got around to planting it relatively recently.
there is an 09 for sale via wine-searcher so must have been planted 04 or earlier since the first few vintages aren’t sold. Interesting.

what a great wine—probably one of the best Volnays I have ever had.
