Has any one drank Chateau Fontenil before? If so have you tried the 2005? LCBO has it on offer for $60CAD and I'm thinking of picking up a couple bottles.   http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo/product/chateau-fontenil-2005/468322#.WLD5gBQaDvY
  I really quite enjoy Chianti with a few years age on it... 4-8 years tends to be a sweet spot for me and I can usually find for about $16-20CAD. As a result, it's often an everyday drinker for me. This example had soft & drying red fruit, acidity and a soft structure. Really delicious and starting to be a bit more evolved from bright red, fresh fruit.
Has anyone every tried Marie Duffau Bas Armagnac? The reviews sound great...   http://www.klwines.com/p/i?i=1014550
How has this been tasting the last couple times you tried it?I'm thinking of opening my bottle soon... What do you recommend in terms of time spent decanting?
The government is just killing us- such a shame.
Went into Nordstrom today... Wasn't terribly impressed by the men's selection. Shoe section was overwhelmingly focused on street wear and the clothing lines didn't seem to be all that different to what we already had access to. I did go through the suit section though.   Thoughts?
Haven't seen many posts on Caol Ila or Glengoyne... Thoughts? I haven't tried either.
In London, I love:-The Coburg Bar at the Connaught Hotel (great ambience and cocktails, lovely old London hotel in Mayfair).-The Fumoir at Claridges (really cool decor... kind of 1920/30s modern decor, very intimate)
Thanks for the idea. I would have done that, only the wine has a lot of sediment in it so I'm going to strain through cheese cloth into a smaller decanter.
Let me know what you think of it!I agree but I believe the producer is mid-tier and "quirky" as the rep explained, so maybe there wine doesn't have the ability for longer aging.Anyways, only one way to find out.
