it's heart warming to hear that we can all still enjoy a $35-40 entry level wine.






on an actual entry level, Oliver Leflaive's $16-18 Bourgogne Blanc is superb QPR wine from a good producer.

update: dinner and wine last night were great; the Bruno Paillard assemblage 1999 was fucking incredible. Going back to the store and buying more for later. The Gevrey-Chambertin and Brunello both got decanted 4 hrs prior to drinking and were also great with the lamb rack.

Happy birthday, dude--sounds like you threw a hell of a party for yourself.

thanks man, last night some woman told me I looked 37 and then asked how I am turning, I said 31. I drank more to soothe my ego. It's a good thing the wine was so delicious. Tomorrow for Xmas/birthday dinner I go meet my favorite chef in Tokyo. Good wine will also be drank over there too.

to be fair, it is the entry level for that producer.

The main dish for tonight's dinner will be capon. I'm not 100% sure how our host is preparing it. Thoughts on wine?

Very good cru beaujolais to a light burgundy.
post #14861 of 17896
Thanks. I have one of the first and several of the second. 2006 Domaine Denis Bachelet Côte de Nuits Villages or 2009 Georges Dubœuf Morgon Domaine de la Chaponne?

I've not had great experiences with Duboeuf and adore Bachelet, so that would be my call.

Thanks. Yeah, I've had some iffy Duboeuf, particularly Nouveau, but this particular bottle is very drinkable and I've been buying it for $13 or so. Great weeknight wine and also I've found a good wine for non-wine drinkers (cru Beaujolais in general I think).
