Re: Has the Wine Advocate basically given up at this point?

William Kelley is spot on when it comes to Red and White Burgundy and he is writing great articles. Good wine producers make good wine in bad vintages. If your buying wine to drink, buy what you like and don't worry about the press. If your buying wine to speculate thats a different story, but as fa...

Re: Keller Silliness

If you are seeking G Max, Pettenthal, Schubertslay, Hipping of Morstein GG's your going to pay a price because these wines are extremely limited and have a cult following. You can compare them to Raveneau, Coche Dury etc., as they are the most expensive wines in the category. The 2018 Abts E was aro...

Wasenhaus

In Germany this winery has gained cult like status. What are your thoughts about their wines? Weissburgunder and Spatburgunder are wines I have no experience with, but I have a chance to purchase some of the Wasenhaus wines. The only bottle of Spatburgunder I own, is the Keller Burger GG 2017 and I ...

I have a friend that lives in Aachen Germany and I am tying to figure out how to source the Keller GG Abts E 2018, Kirchspiel and Hubacker GG 2018 in Germany. After successfully buying these wines in the United States for the past few years, it appears that this year these wines have become somethin...

Best Place to Sell Wine.

What are your experiences selling wine through the different places. You can auction wine and consign wine to K&L, consign to Vinfolio, Benchmark Wine Group and Belmont Wine Exchange. There is WineBid and the the larger auction houses. Unfortunately I need to sell a few bottles of wine which include...

Re: Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas 2016

Has anyone noticed that absolutely every Cornas, St. Joseph and Cote Rotie from any producer young or old is “classic” “traditional” and “old school”? Other than LaLa’s and maybe Chave Hermitage, and some well known producers who basically don’t have to work too hard to sell their wines, the exact ...

Re: Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas 2016

Cheapest local (Kermit import) 2016 Allemand I found "was" $250 for the Reynard and $220 for the Chaillot. That is "if" you can get an allocation.... In San Francisco (Kermit Lynch) the Reynard sold from $255-$299 and the Chaillot sold from $220-$239. I also picked up a 2016 Reynard 1.5 liter for $...

$49 for Gonon SJ Rouge is a good deal these days.
I actually saw eight bottle of 2016 Gonon SJ Rouge today priced at $60.00 each. So if you bought four more bottles of something else you would get a 10% discount to make it $54.00. Alas I spent this months wine budget buying Allemand.

Re: Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas 2016

speaking of... what's the future of Allemand ? I had heard he was retiring soon. Then I hear he's going to start releasing a reserve. Doesn't sound like a guy who is retiring. According to John Livingstone-Learmonth Thierry had enough barrels to bottle roughly four barrels of 1908-09 ex Louis Verse...

Allemand Reynard Cornas 2016 x 4
Allemand Chaillot Cornas 2016 x 3

Just 2 more 750ml bottles of Reynard needed and maybe 1 1.5lt of Reynard would be nice.

Yes but it took six retailers to get only 7 Bottles of 15 Reynard and I actually only bought 4 Bottles 15 Chaillot. The only wine I find harder to source is the Keller GG's.

A suggestion: buy 2011 Alain Verset (nephew of Noel) Cornas for under $50 and forget about that new Ferrari. ‘Stuff is the shit.

Thanks for the wine suggestion Jim. Are you back in Sonoma, or still in Florida? Its been a long time since Rhone for Rednecks.

I wish Juge had held on for one more year. C Fu is the only person I know to post notes on this wine. SommSelect had some bottles of 15 but the price was to high for a wine I never had. My only chance to try this wine is if someone shares. If 2015 was truly the last vintage its price will skyrocket...

Production is down in 16. Suppose to be great. Let the games begin.
Many Rhone winemakers prefer the 16's to the 15's The 16's are supposed to be more classic in style. I can't wait to compare.

Re: Thierry Allemand "Reynard" Cornas 2016

Last year the Reynard was $200.00 and the Chaillot was $190.00. I hope it isn't $300.00 a bottle. If it is I might have to save my money for more Dujac and Mugneret Gibourg.

Last year Kermit Lynch released the wines during the first week of April. Has anyone seen the 2016's at retail yet. I need six bottles of the Reynard. Thanks!
