One of the most interesting posts I read was from Bill Klapp on how to decant Barolo . I truly learned a lot from it .
And I always enjoy the posts from Francois Audouze ( what you read and what you read between the lines ) . His tastings of old wines ( also a hobby of mine ) is full of very valuable information .

I don't remember which post it was , but when Rudy's schemes were finally thrown in the open , I loved to read the old posts by the Rudy apologists on the Parker board .

Should have a hall of infamy too for the Maison Ilan ones. Suzanne's 2011 delivery one where Ray was still responding early on is the one that really should be "celebrated".

I'm hurt that no one has nominated my graphite and salinity thread. How many threads include scientific experiments on wine phenomenon? And it was the thread that inspired Katrina BI to refer to "rubbing fleur de sel in [my] wounds." A good time was had by all, I think.

Or is that ineligible because Charlie moved it to Asylum?
