Which Spieglau do you have?

Two good friends of mine are getting married in a few months and I told them not to register for wine glasses because thats what I wanted to buy them. I had originally planned to get them some Spiegelau Grandissimo, which is what I have, because they're really nice for the money and pretty durable. By my friends' standards, however, they're a bit too big and delicate for daily use and when I asked, they said they'd rather have something they felt comfortable using every day. So any suggestions on another line? I had a couple of the festival glasses in college and as best I remember they weren't clunky, were reasonably durable, and relatively shapely. Help?

vino vino I believe. They're still quite thin, but at no point do I ever believe I'd break them unless I dropped them. I have yet to drop any.

I have had some great 09' Cab Francs from Bourgueil recently.

As for glasses I like Zalta, but I am too cheap to buy a proper set. I bought a bunch of these german glasses recently that I actually like a lot, not expensive at all at like $17 for a couple. I certainly like them better than Reidel. I will find out what they are and post.

Chambers has a few from Guion, with the basic domaine bottling that is 12 bones and is a good food wine.

Chambers is a great store and I'm glad I rarely have the opportunity to go there.

I always have to plan my visit beforehand down to what I want to buy and then get in and get out before I start looking at the left wall with the back vintages.

Had the Ferrari Maximo today. I think I prefer the Perlé.

Heard about that one, but never tasted it before. Any good?

It's decent. Great value for the price I paid.

I just picked up some Foillard's morgon 3,14 cote de py in 750s and magnum from them the other day. They also had a nice rose tasting a few weeks ago. Really like both shops.

How much for a bottle? Tasting notes?

I'm the wrong one to ask for tasting notes because frankly I suck at it. It steers in the direction of Champagne though. They're 21-24€ each regularly but I pay 12.

Well then, not that expensive. Let's hope it's good now. Will try it out next week and give some tasting notes.

Ok, the Brut is the standard Chardonnay. The Perlé is vintage BdB. The Maximum.. I don't know, probably a premium brut.
