Thanks for the rec, tat. Is it ready to drink? I'm looking for something not too expensive that I can get ordered and rested from its travel for over Xmas.

We've enjoyed two bottles from the case I bought and it's drinking just fine. I read some of the CT notes a while ago and some reported that it was closed and needed a few years. That's not been my experience. It's definitely a restrained wine but that's what I like about it. Credit to Slew and Gome for first talking about this producer here...

The Gevrey Chamberting VV was on flash sale for $39.99 a few weeks ago at Premier Cru. It is one level up from the CdN-V. I bought all they had, so I don't think it is an option.

Can you recommend a good Oxlade & Chambertin?

heads up to the masses - Crush has a bunch of Bachelet now in stock, including some really tempting 2001's and 2002's.

I know that whine maker, one Monsieur Wenger. Correct?

Does anyone know of other importers with special deal mailing lists?

Other than Kermit Lynch, I'm struggling to find any others. KL had a nice deal on magnums recently, bought a case though I haven't sampled any yet.

I thought that was a troll statement.

No, sadly, he was telling you how it is.

Thanks, but those are retail shops. I am looking for importers.

The troll is below your post.

You are probably referring to me via snark. What I wrote was "Never tasted a burg worth the money live past 30 years with perfect storage. If you have a different experience, do tell"

I never specifically said it cannot age longer. Just that I didn't believe there was value in it, and many older ones are well past their peak, and that I felt most Burg peak at around 10yrs.

Would either of you like to discuss that?

Or maybe we can be idiots and post about mistakenly leaving out a &, or be the stereotype of wine lovers (snooty assholes). But if you want to further a real discussion about burgundy, aging and experience, please do, that would be pleasant. Or just be old curmudgeons and run to transparent mod and accuse me of messing up the wine thread like Piobaire who feels compelled to police this thread and anoint those he feels worthy. What would you prefer?
