Re: 08` Laurent-Perrier; 2 white Burgs, 6 Barolo incl 64` Pio Cesare, 73` Lanzavecchia, 04` Brevia Ca Mia; 08` Aldo Cont

Great notes as others have said on what must have been a wonderful dinner! Jealous of the food-the truffle looks amazing. Coincidentally, I stood up
a 1964 Pio Cesare Barolo a week or so ago in anticipation of opening it with friends soon. Your note is very encouraging. Cheers!

Re: Remedies for Smoke Taint?

As a follow up we pressed the Pinot yesterday. Decided against taking any extreme measures. Wine tastes pretty good at this awkward stage as Malo had just started. Too early to know if it has been affected but am encouraged by yesterday’s sample.
Thanks to all who offered advice.

Re: 2001 Côte de Nuits, which producers really killed it?

Interesting topic as I have had and still a number of 01’s. Good to hear about Dujac doing well in 2001 as we have 1 bottle of Bonnes Mares. Any idea of drinking window for this typically masculine vineyard?

Re: Remedies for Smoke Taint?

Thank you for all of your replies. We made rose’ from the same vineyard last weekend before things got really bad this week. Might try to “cold crash” with dry ice as Wes suggested. Really a shame as grapes and numbers were looking so good before the change in winds that started Wednesday.

Remedies for Smoke Taint?

Hi, first post here. I find the annual weather thread to be an excellent source of knowledge and news. We will be picking a small amount of Pinot this weekend in Sonoma County. Likely the fruit has been exposed to smoke. Are there any measures one could employ to minimize the effects of smoke? Shoul...

Re: The Taittinger Comtes Thread

Thank you Blake and Yao for the tasting notes. Sounds good if not great. Maybe that’s why I don’t see many notes on it.

Re: Joy.......Vilmart

Love Vilmart! Their Grand Reserve is yummy but the GrandCellier is on another level for NV Champagne. Have a few of Vintage Couer wines but haven’t had one recently. And Tran is right, their Ratafia is really excellent,, would buy on sight if I could find it here in the US.

Re: The Taittinger Comtes Thread

Has anyone had the 05 BdB recently? Have a lone bottle and wonder how it’s drinking. We’ve consumed and really enjoyed a few bottles of the 06. We visited
Taittinger May 2019, amazing chalk cellars! A fun tour.

Re: How long do you drink a bottle of Wine?

We generally have a couple of bottles open all the time. Usually a rose’ or sparkler and a red. Some reds seem to open more on day 2 especially if they are younger. Everything goes into the fridge until the next day.

Re: TN: 2005 Dominique Gallois Charmes Chambertin

Alan I always enjoy your tasting notes on burgundies. I only have and have had the Gevrey village wines from Dominique Gallois but really enjoy them. Think I have a couple bottles of the 05 Gevrey AC.

Re: TN: Shake Some Action...

Marshall, not to hijack your tasting note, i’m also something of a music and wine geek. Saw the Groovies in Chicago in the early 80’s. Great show and I agree with you about the opening riff, classic and instantly recognizable.
