I will report back on 3 euro wines in France shortly. Until then, I'm giving them 91 points.

Some recent pours...

Thierry Puzelat's Le Tel Quel - very vibrant gamay

469

Bachelet Cote de Nuits-Villages '08 - great as usual

469

Lane Tanner pinot '06 - pretty nice, but a lot of funk to start with. More old-world than new - no twizzlers

469

Dagueneau Blanc Fume de Pouilly '08 - I bought a few of these and had to try one, far too young but irresistibly good. Post-Didier but still admirably complex - rich, acidic, etc.

thank you, I'm utilizing a new camera and hoping to become somewhat competent in using it before my France trip. That pic was full auto, better pics will come when I am more versed in photo stuff.

Big fan of Monchof's ice wine.  Sweet with a touch of acid, yum!

Weekend wines:

1991 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Chabot Vineyard. Good, but nothing special.
2008 Huet Le Mont Demi-Sec. Just the perfect amount of sweetness balanced with great acid. Fantastic as always.
2002 Domaine Maillard Corton Blanc. Getting to be an old favorite by now. There seems to be a lot of the 2002 around right now for some reason. I keep buying it thinking I'll put a bottle or two away but I keep drinking them. I'm going to be sad when I can't find it anymore.
2009 Charles Hours Jurançon Uroulat. Really a fantastic sweet wine.

Really been enjoying a few bottles of 2007 C'est Si Bon by Elysee Vineyards lately. Southern Rhone style blend and probably the most distinct mocha notes out of any wine I've ever tasted. Medium bodied and has dark cherry or rasberry going to. It's about $28 bucks retail and can stand up to hearty food.

Very fruity. Not bad. But I often prefer dry wines with moderate fruitiness, because apparently lots of fruitiness makes a quite sweetish wine while being classified as dry. Could use another pinch of acidity, too.
