I’d be interested, as well.

Did you get any heat on the Auberts? I’ve had some aged Auberts with no perceptible heat and some where I was disappointed by some heat.

Count me in…anytime, anyplace, any-geek.

Question on that gougeres with foie gras if you happen to remember.

Looks like piped foie gras mousse on the bottom, correct? What was the white substance on top of it?

I make gougeres frequently and this seems like something to try


Interested as well.


I mostly get a hint of heat, both in young and old wine. It is a matter of all the “other” components that lessen the heat expression. In my opinion, as the fruit expression gets rounder and the mineral expression diminishes, heat becomes more pronounced.

I don’t recall what the white substance was, perhaps creme fraiche with horseradish?

It may be a good idea to start a new thread.

So it’s looking like late May works for many. Perhaps we can target May 25th as Thursday works for those who I’ve IM’ed directly with.


I’ll join too if there’s space.

All, I created this new thread for tracking purposes. If you are able to join, please comment on the Event Planner thread so we can begin determining headcount.
