yeah, I think it is finally ready

had my first 2009 Bord tonight. Quite lovely. Totally ready.

Also, Tavel. Kermit Lynch rose. Not sure what to make of it. At $18, it's a crazy extravagance for me.

They say they are aging faster.

The rep is that they are "soft" drink-young wines. Definitely true of this bottle.

I don't have any '09s from the big boys but I have picked up some cheapies along the way, especially after the back vintages began to run out. Soon I will be out of cheap 07s and 04s and the 09s will do very nicely.

Had a bottle of Ditch Digger, southern Rhone style blend by Denner Vineyards on Saturday (along with a bunch of other stuff.) It was a 2010 and drinking fine now but I bet will be just fine in 2020. Along with the usual GSM it has Counoise and Cinsault.

Damn fine, reasonably priced Vac.

Tough and unapproachable at first. Was very elegant by the second day



Smells and tastes like Sauvignon blanc but tastes sweeter and lacks acid. My first igp I think. Very good for $10. Apparently is 70% colombard 15% ugni blanc 15 % gros manseng. Interesting. Never had such colombard dominant blend

Lafarge is big time and 09 is a big time vintage

i did a lot of research online and found it at crush for $60. the lady didn't believe they stocked it until she checked the system. there was a bottle or two left i think, but she said she might take them.

09 is great for cheaper bords- give an hour or so to open up. The 09 cambon la pelouse is a go-to for company and there's a lot around.
