Re: Champagne refrigerator

I suppose one possible solution would be to replace a couple of shelves in a EuroCave with one of these and store the Champagne upright:

Wine of the week? Very kind people did share some wonderful bottles. Tops were 1996 Rousseau Chambertin, 2007 Coche Ensegniere, 1993 Leroy Beaux Monts and a 2001 Clos de Tart. Sadly the first three only afforded modest pours.
Was this from a mag at the Zachys dinner?

Re: New York City Restaurants

I forgot to mention that we ate at Bouley at Home three weeks ago and it was perhaps the most disappointing meal ever in terms of what we paid and what we received. It was almost comically bad -- we had to laugh our way through it to prevent us from getting really upset and making a scene.

Based on a bottle of 06 Don Peppino that I had earlier this year, those wines will age beautifully. I wish I had more! The problem is they are pretty tasty young (yes, very tannic, but so fresh and fruit-forward that it's balanced), so it is hard to keep your hands off of them!
