Too young or drinkable?

I'd wait most Barolos need ~ ten years. If you don't mind the tannins/eating with food, you can try with a decant

'10 was a good year in Barolo

Was sort of hoping one of our Eye-tie philes might have a line on the producer.

Tends to be modernist, uses barriques rather than the botte ( big barrels), short maceration times

Try and get some. Partied with these folks several times and they're really passionate and dedicated to their wine and family business.

Lanessan was my first actual Bordeaux- the one that got me hooked on non-terrible wine. Haven't seen it locally forever. I think it was a '98... or an '00. I can't remember exactly which. I'm still hard-pressed to find anything with that quality to price ratio.

Montus is good, too. Don't have experience with any old ones, so I've probably been committing infanticide.

The K&L in hollywood had the '99 last week for only ~$19.

There are practice test questions available and they're great. What's better is that the material they give you online is what they use to test you on. The list with liqueurs and cocktails especially you should memorize cuz that's part of the service portion

But from what I remember you get membership automatically when you pay for the exam

Thanks for the info. I'm going to pay to join as I don't expect them to put the location I plan to take it onto their calendar for some months. I'm hoping to take it next fall.

Good vintage, good producer. I'm jealous.

Most likely oxidized. Fevre is just about the worst of the premox offenders (maybe not as bad as Colin-Deleger but close). A shame as the wines seemed headed for greatness, but white burgundy post '95 has the plague and you buy at your own risk, unless its says "Coche" or "D'auvenay" on it.

^ very possible, but wouldnt the retailer let him bring it back if it were premoxed? (assuming it wasnt bought at auction)

Ah, well good luck - you might be able to tell ahead of time because of the color.
