Re: Burgundy treachery

I can think of no other region where people are so forgiving of poor quality and inconsistency at stratospheric prices.

Imagine a high-end winery from anywhere else in the world. Haut Brion? MacDonald? d’Yquem?

Would you tolerate the same from these wineries? Why or why not?

Is it just me? Napa vs Bordeaux QPR

I’ve gone on a tasting spree, and ‘15 Bordeaux in the $50-100 absolutely slays nearly everything coming out of Napa (in any recent vintage) at a similar price point.

Did Zalto Bordeaux glass change?

I ordered 2 new glasses of Amazon, and both slightly different than my Zalto Bordeaux glasses (several years old). 1. The new stem feels a bit thicker (it's a slightly less elegant feel in the hand). 2. The glass is a little bit taller. 3. Where the stem meets the base doesn't have the same flare. A...

Yes, my experience is that they are structured and improve over time; however, YMMV, all depends on your definition "improve"
Fair question. Let’s define “improvement” as showing more site characteristics with age, greater complexity, and secondary characteristics.

Top N. Rhone Producers below AND above $100???

We just finished a bottle of '15 Voge Cornas V.V., which was spectacular. It has me thinking I should jump on the '15/'16 bandwagon (yes I know I'm a bit late).

1. What are your favorite N. Rhone producers below and/or above $100?

2. Is each old school or modern?

Those where I've found the most significant improvement with age:

Arcadian - Sleepy hollow and Pisoni from the late 90s/early 2000s were gorgeous at 10 - 12 years.
Rhys - '04 Home after 6 - 8 years was incredible. Jury is out on the rest, but I have high hopes.
