Re: TN: Throwback - Glory of Aged White Burgs

Nice work Jayson.

Thomas Morey put on a bottle of 1985 Domaine Bernard Morey et Fils Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Embrazées from the family cellar for us recently. It was one of the very best wines I've had this year.

Re: Barolo apogee

It's hard to say. Some of my best experiences have been from wines from 1958, 1961 and 1964. I still reckon there are quite a few '71's and '74's that have plenty left in the tank. Barolo is delicious young and tends to start really showing well at 10 years of age. I don't think there is a definitiv...

Re: So this premox thing is real?!

It is not just white Burgundy. Any wine sealed with a cork is susceptible to tca (obviously) and oxidation (white and red). I was speaking to a well-regarded Barossa winemaker yesterday. He switched to screwcap in 2001. When opening any bottles of red prior to 2001 it is a crapshoot, with him having...
