Nice and linear with good grip - '09 I think will go the distance but it is drinking very well now.I've had great luck with Fontsainte Corbieres from Kermit Lynch. More than $10 but not much more and utterly reliable.lol - find a friend and split a case. This is the page (http://www.rooftopcellars.com/petits-chateaux.php) you want to keep bookmarked and get on their mailing list as things sell out fast. Some great deals on incoming 93/94/95/96 bdx at $30/bottle and...
Burg night here too, I think. I have an '09 Pavelot Savigny-les-Beaunes 1er cru La Dominode which I've been itching to try.
I bring a fair bit back but have never been assessed duty on wines I've brought back myself. I've always been up front that I was importing and have simply been waived through although I do this after trips longer than 48 hrs. I never bring more than a case back. I don't know which province you're in, but if you're from BC and like older yet inexpensive Bordeaux there is a great little import company that brings in such a thing: Rooftop Cellars - they import petit...
Sipping this while waiting for dinner to be done... '11 Huet demi-sec from Le Mont. So nicely balanced between acidity and sweetness. It will accompany Robuchon's guinea fowl with roast potatoes brilliantly.
I agree it can be a minefield in some regions but disagree strongly with your view that value wines are not to be found. Pretty much anything from Kermit, Louis/Dressner or Neal Rosenthal is going to be good and the majority of their portfolios are reasonably priced.
OK +1, but see if you can get a relative to send you a bottle of his single vineyard stuff. It does not suck balls.
I don't know much about Ontario reds (I'm in BC) but I've had some Norman Hardie pinots that were very nice from Prince Edward County.
We've enjoyed two bottles from the case I bought and it's drinking just fine. I read some of the CT notes a while ago and some reported that it was closed and needed a few years. That's not been my experience. It's definitely a restrained wine but that's what I like about it. Credit to Slew and Gome for first talking about this producer here...
Give the 2008 Cotes de Nuits-Village a try - it's probably the least expensive one out there. I can get it for $40 but they're asking $55 for the '09 where I shop. There is a regular Bachelet Bourgogne which is ok but I'd go for the CdN-V...
Just took a sip of this while it's breathing for tonight: 2004 d'Angerville Volnay Clos des Ducs. Very supple and fragrant.
