This was delicious. Green apple, a little pear, lemons, you can kind of taste the chalk. Searing acidity. drool.gif I want another bottle.

Yeah. Looks nice. I've just received my Spiegelau vinovino white wine glasses. At first I didn't find them too beautiful but by now I like them. The Schott Zwiesel diva bordeaux glasses are also great. So sturdy, could've broken one glass thrice by now but it always resisted.

Had the Bouchard et Fils. Wasn't too impressed. Very flat in taste. At most some slight buttery/nutty notes. Maybe a little oxidized.
Also the Antinori bianco '11. This one is quite nice. Enjoyed it. Much more to taste here. Also quite "strong" (still not sure whether it's minerality...) in the aftertaste.
And now I'm having a Bolgheri Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato '06. Needs two hours, then it's pretty damn good. I bought two bottles today, maybe I'll get another one tomorrow. For 15€ this seems very nice. Probably would benefit from a couple more years but that's not in my means at the moment. Feels very Italian to me.

Also picked up a red and white wine from Antinori (or marketed by them.. damn wine mafia, lol) in the cheaper region. Interested to see what they are like. Will report back.

BTW, anyone had Rodet Chablis? Any good?

And the cheaper Antinori wine is "Santa Cristina".

Rodet is not bad.

My palate is blind to minerality but I could've sworn this one had some calcium carbonate

Maybe I should go lick some slate an chalk

Infanticide last night, 2007 Beaucastel, it was pretty awesome though, glad to have another 12 in the cellar.

Exactly what a classic Chianti should be.

Have not drank that yet. Will report in when I do.

The Parallel is a fine bottle for $10.
post #14189 of 18178
^ Oh, I thought that was a pic of the wine you drank last night.

The Santa Cristina rosso '11 is drinking fine. Nothing special, but seems good QPR for 5€.
