Trying to drink more French- my area of least knowledge...

I liked the Costis Bordeaux upon opening and through the evening. Not as much day two when some of teh acidity had flattened. Have not yet tried the other two.

I couldn't find a thread or comment on this topic of interest to me...

 

Does anyone have a website of choice for wine purchases? If so, please feel free to tell me if it is the pricing, speet, etc.

 

Thanks

I buy very little online. Occasionally from some of the clearing houses like WTSO. I've never found one that was offering something for any less than I might find somewhere else online.

The exception being http://chambersstwines.com/ for the rare occasion when I buy something ancient.

Blind tasted at lunch. I was eating a squash blossom pizza with plenty of oil, garlic, and cheese, and it tasted like a Loire blend to me at the time. Everyone else guessed Russian River pinot. After I had my salad I saw what they meant. It was good, but not much in the way of QPR.

Drank before dinner. Very good. I like the style - light, lithe, and elegant. A good example of power without weight. Sour fruit was the dominant thing happening, but there was something off in the finish. Like a sweet-tart taste like that which is usually associated with acidulation. Cobb picks early though, and while its not impossible he added acid to a wine that came out to 13.1% alc, it would be sort of odd. The other explanation is that the grapes weren't quite ripe. Still, it was good.

RE: The Official Wine Thread

Anyone tried Gramercy? Starting at $50/bottle and a style that seems designed to encourage cellaring, I'm not sure it's my thing, but they do a nice Syrah.

A lot of people seem to like the Meiomi Pinot, I see it around a lot. Any good?

Which Gramercy? Walla Walla?

RE: The Official Wine Thread

Yes, Walla Walla. Sorry for being unclear.

I'm a big fan, actually, it's one of my favorites!
