Burgundy

Hello, I have a short trip planned to Dijon in October and wanted to visit some wineries. From what I’ve read, Burgundian vignerons are not the most welcoming To outsiders. I was wondering if anyone knew of any great producers who offer tastings with appointments. So far we have reached out to Roumi...

Re: Paris or Lyon

Anyone been to Antic in Lyon? I’ve been to Legrand in Paris and while selection was good I’d love to find some back vintage gems as well as my favorite burgundy, Rhône and champagne producers for a fraction of the price of here in NYC.

Buying online

Question for those in NYC or others who live where wine cannot be shipped from certain states. I order a good deal of wine online, some of my favorite retailers being located in California. One issue I’ve faced is that some retailers cannot ship to New York so they inevitably end up on hold for pick...

Aurélien Lurquin

Just picked up 2 bottles of Aurélien Lurquin Chardonnay and Meunier champagne. Anyone try these? From what I could dig up, they’re made in an oxidative fashion and production is beyond minuscule.

Here are two options that have worked. 1) Use the Coravin to check just before the dinner. I doubt an hour or so will hurt even if the cork doesn't fully re-seal. 2) Che...

Coravin old bottle

Hello all, I’ve been lurking for some time now posting for the first time. I had a question regarding the use of a coravin with the standard needle for an older bottle. I’ve got an 83 Chave I’m bringing to dinner next week and want to make sure it’s not flawed. Do I run the risk of the older cork no...
