I've heard good things about Kermit Lynch's 07 Gigondas bottling. Have not cracked mine open yet, but everyone I've talked to that has has felt great about it.

^ 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.

The pre '07 bottlings, when both areas were blended, were often excellent, and can sell at a good price even now.

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 angry.gif

I had been thinking about Rioja and Piedmonte, but I'm afraid I won't be able to afford a good barolo or barbaresco thats ready to drink. So lay it on me!

Sottimano Barbaresco Cotta, Barbaresco DOCG, Italy
Their Currá and Pajoré bottlings as well. The 2003 are rock stars. The 05's drinking well too.

Will let you know. Cooking dinner currently.

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.

If you like Huet vouvrays you may want to stock up as changes are afoot...

On a related note, stiff breeze meets a Riedel Vinum Pinot Noir:

One of my wine glasses fell from the table. The stem broke in 10 pieces. The body was still intact.

My Riedel break if I look at them wrong.

So, Pinguet is quitting Domaine Huet eh? Big news in the Loire.
