Jayson, the 1998 CRB Côt may be my wine of the year for 2017. I can't imagine a better Malbec than CRB's, and I certainly haven't had anything that compares.

Snagged a case and a half of this for $30 per. Very pleased, but I plan to put them to sleep. Thanks for the note, Rob!

Amazing price, Drew! Lucky you. I’d gone much deeper at that price, too.

I get some from Envoyer every year. Are you not on Greg's list, Alan?

I got some 2010s in the cellar and have been thinking about opening one, giving it air, and then seeing what's there. If I do this, should I be worried that one of you is going to show up at my pad and give me hell? [berserker.gif]
I think I actually introduced Greg to Baudry and Pepiere when I lived there. He was pretty Burgundy-centric at the time. This was at his old spot before Envoyer. Great guy.
Picked up two 1996 Boissee today from Scott & Greg at Envoyer. The CT notes tell me this may be either a mess or wonderful after about an hour. I’ll take my chances.

I’d take that bet! Hope they show well!

No shit. That's less than my wholesale price.
ITB-ish.

Wow, maybe I should sign back up for their mailing list. It was just too dangerous...
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

Yeah, you almost never see older vintages of this offered.

Agree, older Baudry Boissee are impossible for me to backfill compared to Couly-Dutheil and Olga Raffault that library release. Got to love that stinky stuff if your nose is in old Chinon.

Opened the '14 Guillot today. Short version: this is tasty and dirt-wine as f*ck. Bright fruits, and green as an Android text message. Enjoy!

Agreed, it’s killer. Shows better than croix Boissee and Grezeaux. For now. I ordered more.

Thanks Jeb. Allow me to dive into the long version. This wine definitely increases one’s dirty sex appeal. I had a bottle once while watching Rambo - First Blood and ended up marrying my wife a few years later. She never said her decision was based of the wine I was drinking that day but I know the truth. You can argue against this wine but you’d lose because it’s scientifically proven to awesome.

“You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in guerrilla warfare, with a man who's the best, with guns, with knives, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore weather, to live off the land, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. In Vietnam his job was to dispose of enemy personnel. To kill! Period! Win by attrition. Well Rambo was the best.”

Having a baby has completely f'ed up.your schedule and given you time, at odd hours, to be introspective. Delightful take on how Baudry brings couples together. Maybe it was just the alcohol. Haha.

Ok, this was spot on lovely bottle of 96’ Boissee with a touch of funk, lively fruits, smooooth, no rough edges anywhere, cab franc essence, lovely. I have one more and a string of other vintages.

Funny you mention that, an occurrence similar to your hypothetical actually happened here in Central Florida a few years ago. A fine young man was having a lovely evening with straight liquor and crack. He apparently felt the need to feel the lakeside wind on his back, and proceeded to strip off all of his clothing, but never actually made it into the lake. He decided to take a little snooze on the bank. It was pitch dark, rather late. Later people on the house heard a man screaming and wailing. A friendly eight food gator saw the man, bit onto his upper-arm and torso, and dragged him into the lake. The crack must have given this man incredible energy, as the Gator could not drag him under. The cops showed and two very brave ones jumped into the water and dragged the guy and the Gator up onto the bank. I
