Listened to our own @Slewfoot this morning on the way to work. Nicely done.

I'm temporarily cellaring a boatload of "interesting" wines for a friend. Many great barolos etc and few unusual things.

Here's a "rarity" - notable for what/when.

Drinkable? Doubtful. Interesting history nonetheless.

Red, listening to a 1.5 hour podcast about WA wines on the "I'll Drink To That" podcast. Grab it.

i thought it was pretty crazy how you just walked into Zachy's for an internship and later somehow started working there when their auction department was just starting. sounded like an amazing time to be in the business

Nostalgia and a connection to them back in the day.

Which episode is it? I'm actually in the market for some podcasts to listen to.

On a side note - I've tried to listen to a few podcasts on random subjects - there is a lot of crap out there.

It's not showing the number on my phone but it's showing that it's from Nov 15, 2015...the one titled, "Washington State Wines."

I must be looking in the wrong place - I'll drink to that doesn't have anything titled like that and there is no podcast from nov 15 . . .
post #19601 of 20670
Yeah, there's only two podcasts tagged with Washington State. Maybe the Kevin Pogue one?

Yup, sorry, was reading the wrong list. It's the Guild Somm podcast. shog[1].gif

It was really very good and I plan to listen to it again.

Can anyone clarify the process or "reconditioning" older wine for me? This article states:

 

"I was looking at the Giacomo Borgogno website where I discovered that all the producer’s old wines had been “reconditioned” in 2007. That is, they were uncorked, decanted, topped off, and then recorded."

 

Judging by the comments, it sounds as if the producer has simply replaced the older cork with a new one and topped off the bottle with the same vineyard & vintage wine...? If so, the author comes across a bit misleading, I think.

The proper technique is as you stated. The Estate will sacrifice a perfectly stored bottle from their own cellar to top up historical bottles in the hands of collectors, or bottles from their own cellar. The main purpose is to restore cork integrity and limit further oxidation. As such, it should be preformed under very controlled conditions to limit oxidation during the re-corking.

Premier Cru in Chapter 7.
