Well then my most sincere thanks to you!Here is Tanzer's note on the '07:"(15% new oak) Good deep red. Pure aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and vanilla. Dense but fine, with lovely lift to the dark berry and licorice flavors. Broad, supple and rather feminine in style; almost premier cru quality in its suavity. From small grapes and a well-drained site in Brochon. (By the way, Bachelet's 2007 Bourgogne rouge should be strong too.)"By Stephen Tanzer,...
His CdN has become a go-to for us thanks, I think, to an earlier recommendation from someone in this thread.I also really enjoy his Aligote which I think compares well to de Villaine's. We had an '09 a couple of nights ago - it is refreshing and mineral...
Very enjoyable Gruner tonight - Stadt Krems Kremstal Reserve Wachtberg. Not, I'd say, up to the same standard as Pichler or Prager but a good example of how well balanced and stony a nice gruner veltliner can be. Very strange closure on the bottle: a little glass cap with a rubber washer...
Apparently he wasn't interested in making as much dry wine as the family would like and he didn't like the Hwang's focus on large commercial orders. Can't say I disagree with Pinguet, his demi-sec is one of my favorite whites.

Damn! Let us know what it was like. Beychevelle used to be such a great wine. Fonsainte Corbieres Rouge tonight. Just got notice that their Gris de Gris for 2011 was being released so I may be in for a dozen.
Old-fashioned presentation, French of course, called "Truite en colere". Angry trout bites his own tail...
Agreed - I have a small stash and we always really enjoy them. I'm tempted to buy some magnums of '05 but the importer only sells them in cases of 6 and according to my wife I have too much wine
^ They're all good, but you could sit on the 07s for a while and drink the 08s earlier... I'd go with Racines, been less than impressed with Terrasse du Diable which seems more one-dimensional.
This is our current favorite.
