3rd bottle of the Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico today. "Best" bottle so far. Enjoying it a lot. Great value at 11 €, glad I've bought 10 bottles.

It was the WOTN for me. The PL was just okay, it wasn't a great bottle, and we didn't get to the Margaux.

BTW, did you guys hear that Chateau Listran will be called Chateau Lestran from here on out since it was bought by some Chinese and in China, Listran was already a registered trademark?

since when does China care about trademark infringement?

it's been a long time since I've had 82 P-L but it has always blown me away

Had 05 evesham wood Pinot le puits sec for turkey day.

The day before I had my first birth year first growth, 82 latour. Also got to try my first DRC!!! 76 RSV, not perfect (76 is not a great vintage), but wow, still REALLY REALLY yummy. Also had 98 Leroy Clos Vougoet. The Leroy was definitely very contemporary.

Had many wines last night at my usual place. My friend was both trying some new wines he put on his wine list and was cracking bottles he only had one or two of left that were coming off the list. The most interesting thing he poured was a Kermit import. It was French but could not find a location on it other than, I think, a Rhone indicator. It was mainly Grenache and made in the Methode a L'Ancienne. It was a rose and sparkling. Light acid, light fruit, just a really pleasant little wine and I've never come across anything else like it. Wish I could find it on his website.

Was it this?

It's a bugey (in savoie which is in the alps). I thought it was really interesting. It's bottled halfway into first fermentation and continues fermentation in the bottle. It had really nice nutty caramel flavors. I thought it could use more acid but maybe it's the style.

Yup, think that's it. Thanks for the ID.

I love that wine in the summertime.

Dude at the wine store has tried to convince me to buy that stuff. His description didn't make it sound too appealing to me, but maybe I'll give it a go.

Will be drinking a Kermit Lynch import tonight--Joncier Lirac. I've tasted it before and thought it was good.

It's a light, fruity, bubbly quaffer.


Not to be confused with a light, fruity, bubbly queefer.

I've like the lirac roses I've had. I've wanted to try some more serious lirac reds

Rodet Chablis '11. I like it better than what I remember the last bottle I've had was like.
