Re: Has anybody started trying Bordeaux 2005s? What are your views?

Guys, any advice on Rauzan Gassies 2005 from magnum? Slow ox for 8 hours, double decant and put back in bottle, wait for another 10 years, etc?

Re: Ceritas - Save the date 8/8/19

The cellar tracker notes from prior vintages are less then glowing. Would be nice to have a review from anyone else besides Galloni. His review is compelling but has anyone had a chance to try this vintage or has anyone else reviewed it?

Re: TN 1996 Dalla Valle Napa Valley Cab

We opened this last night and it drank beautifully immediately. As we were at a large wine event for the Manhattan Beach wine auction (our annual champagne dinner), so the bottle didn’t last long and I had to tuck the bottle away so it wasn’t immediately consumed. Anyways this is a medium weight ful...

I attended the auction at the Beverly Location. Of the 10 or so items I bid on, I was outbid (online) by maybe 6 of them and I landed 4. I ended up with the 2006 Ponsot Clos de la roche (which was a deal) but also got the 2007 Fourrier Clos st Jacques which I overpaid for [truce.gif] and the 2008 wh...

Guys, this wine was at a recent Fairchild event and I can say that I’ve physically touched the bottle. Lawrence was there himself and from the two times I’ve met him I can say he’s a great guy. He’s easy to speak to and he showed up himself to pour wines at our auction which says a lot. Although thi...
