Re: Bordeaux Wine Travel - Henri Challeau

We also stopped at ETS Martin (what an amazing store!!) but didn't taste there. What was your format like? I plan to arrange a tasting in their below ground room on our next visit in the future.... It was very informal and not anything that had been planned for us (I believe.) We walked in and they...

Re: Bordeaux Wine Travel - Henri Challeau

I just returned from France including two days touring Bordeaux with Henri, and I would highly recommend it. We were a group of 10 and we did one day in St. Emilion/Pomerol and one day in Graves/Sauternes. Given the size of our group Henri had two vehicles (two Mercedes-Benz passenger vans) and the ...

It is the ‘regular’. The spring offer is the EBA and the white.

Re: 2000 Leoville Barton and 2001 Lewelling Wight

I've had a couple of bottles of the '00 LB in the last couple of years and they have both been fantastic. The first one was at a 2017 tasting with Damian Barton Sartorius here in the Boston area, and the second one was from an order I made from the same event so it is possible (but I'm not entirely ...

Prices??

I know...if you have to ask the price...you can't afford 'em.

Up $10 from last year - now $170 each for the Syrah/Grenache. Not sure about the sticky - wish list only for me and no price listed online.

Mattias, How long were you on the list before your were offered the wishlist option for mags? I just saw this now... This is my third year on the list. I've bought everything in full but not requested anything extra in the past. There were wish list options for the regular-sized bottles from the ge...

Does anyone know the price of the magnum box? (One mag of each.)

It's listed as a wish list item for me, but I don't see a price listed, so would like to understand how much it would be if my wish were to be fulfilled.

Yes - I'd rather wait a bit if that helps us get a sizable group. Being pretty new on the list and not having many bottles yet, each one feels pretty precious, so would rather share them with more people. More fun to try a sixth of six different bottles than a third from three...or something like th...

SQN Book Offer out

I had never heard of SQN before registering on this board, and can't believe the wines go for those prices. What is the cheapest SQN wine that would give you an idea of the house style? To get an idea of the house style I recommend trying any of the Syrahs or Grenaches. They change the names every ...

Steinberger (and Levenberg) Give SQN Its (Long Over-) Due!

I find the argument that it's "impossible to believe" that someone can love both La Tache and SQN Syrah to be simply preposterous. Yes, DRC and SQN have very different ideas of what they want their wines to taste like so you could say that one is the antithesis of the other...but so do Yquem and pro...

SQN Offering

Would anyone with the "larger" allocations be willing to share how they break down. I'm relatively new on the list and got 1 box of the EBA and 6 whites for 12 bottles total - same as last year (which was my first year.) Not that I really need more - this makes a large enough dent as it is - but I'm...
