Post your Unpopular Wine Opinion

Beaujolais is one of the great wine regions of the world.

Beaujolais-Villages is almost always better than village-specific "Cru" Beaujolais.

Most Barolo is flat and boring.

Brunello is horribly overpriced.

WTSO today-Bellini Amarone 2009

Well, I have some more information that I just got by calling the importer (Superior Wine Selections), whose name is JUST BARELY visible on the photo of the bottle on the WTSO website. They were very helpful. Here is what I learned: The winery is NOT "Villa Bellini", it is just "Bellini". They have ...

WTSO today-Bellini Amarone 2009

I can't find ANY reviews on CT or elsewhere. The website for the winery given in the WTSO blurb doesn't even appear to be the right winery!
But I LOVE Amarone, so I am tempted.
Has anyone heard of this winery?

TN: LastBottle Moving Marathon Spoils

Last night I had one of the Nicolette Christopher 2005 Napa cabs I bought a couple weeks back on lastbottle. I really enjoyed it-A very sophisticated wine which I think was well worth the $24 price tag. My first purchase from lastbottle and i was a little nervous given the age of the wine as to how ...

WTSO today-Lois Boillot Premier Cru "les cent vignes"

This is, I think, a different Louis Boillot to the one who is married to Ghislaine Barthod and makes excellent wine. I don't know anything about these but Cent Vignes is among the weakest of the Beaune 1ers and I would want to sample it first. Thanks-I didn't know that Cent Vignes is not highly reg...

WTSO today-Lois Boillot Premier Cru "les cent vignes"

Hi all- Hoping some Burgundy afficionados can help out a newbie who likes the Burgundy he's had and wants to be careful about purchases. WTSO has Louis Boillot Beaune Premier Cru "Les Cent Vignes" at $28/bottle. I see nothing on CT or Wine-Searcher regarding a "Les Cent Vignes" from this winemaker f...
