Tonight with pot roast: 98 Ogier Cote Rotie. It's awesome! Wonderfully aromatic, entering the maturity window, it's Cote Rotie/Hermitage/et al season.

Bullshit.

Some burg has a lot of tannin and develops and is structured to survive past 30 years to justify an $800 a bottle value, but its rare. The only example I have every sampled that ticked all the boxes was a Richebourg Echezeaux and truly warranted its $1200 value.
Most Burg peaks within 20 years, from what I have tried.

Just look at that sentence construction. You clearly were talking about "a" bottle of wine and talked about "its" value.

Just took a sip of this while it's breathing for tonight: 2004 d'Angerville Volnay Clos des Ducs. Very supple and fragrant.

I could go for some of that right now.

Fun! Good to see some talk about Rhone wines.

I'm not even going to weigh in on the Burgundy conversation as I think you all know my feelings there.

Speaking of Rhone, I have this and hope to read it over Xmas, in front of the fire while sipping some wine: http://www.amazon.com/Chateauneuf-du-Pape-Wine-Book-Harry-Karis/dp/9081201719/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1354758476&sr=8-1&keywords=chateauneuf+du+pape

Tasted a 2010 Beaucastel tonight - I dig it. I really dig it.

I had one ofthose cheapo Charles Smith wines. "Steak House Cabernet". Pretty damn good for $12.

Had an ME SB last night. I'm getting the entire case I'm usually allocated in 2013.

Interestingly, Matt, the two or three best Burgs I've had was during a CA trip, incl. the very good Nuits St. Georges we had during dinner in SFO. My Burg experiences from the LCBO have not been quite so good. Probably, due to my naiveté with the terroir/vintage/age, etc rather than the appellation.

Love it, but even a little age on this wine improves it tenfold. If you can get a hold of a bottle of 1999....

with Burg, it's producer, producer, producer.


I'd argue that Bachelet's $40-45 "cote de nuits" is far superior to almost every $40-45 Gevrey-Chambertin or Chambolle Musigny or Vosne-Romanee or any premier cru vineyeard in any of those villages.

I'm going to order a Bachelet or two next week. This mystery must be solved.
post #14655 of 17674
Give the 2008 Cotes de Nuits-Village a try - it's probably the least expensive one out there. I can get it for $40 but they're asking $55 for the '09 where I shop.
There is a regular Bachelet Bourgogne which is ok but I'd go for the CdN-V...
