    You better hope it's Lynch-Bages (although still way unlikely)

    Small timer value wine contributions for tonight:
    2009 Da Vinci Chianti - Great value for $12.99
    2009 Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon - I picked up 2 bottles for about $2.25 each - (normally $10) - and definitely a good surprise value wine especially for $2.25

    [​IMG] I love drinking wine that is older than me.

    I realize that for someone of your *ahem* stature, this is much more difficult to do.

    2007 Domaine Weinbach Gewurtztraminer Reserve Particuliere - a stunning wine, lots of tart green fruit but very refined.

    [​IMG] I wish. I just saw a bottle of the '79 and '81. It's way too much scratch for me, especially since I would rather get regular wine instead of distilled. But it looked interesting to say the least.

    Oawefaeawefawef;oajkwe;foiawejf I love my university so much I am so happy Today we had some bordeaux superieurs, a white bordeaux (sb, semillon, muscadelle blend), a barton and guestier sauternes (for $24 i would definitely buy this) and dun dun dun we got to try a 1999 chateau talbot and 1979 chateau pichon longueville comtesse de lalande [​IMG] [​IMG] i was so happy. i was giggling like a little girl when we were tasting both what was even more awesome was that mutkoski called may elain de lencquesang in the middle of the class put her on speaker phone and she got to talk a little about her wine. apparently her granddaughter is in the class. she sounds very interesting. she was apparently in south africa (i think) at a winery she was helping out at. mutkoski told us that the 1979 pichon was the second year she took over as director and made a few changes in order to modernize the winery. he said it was important to her personally because it was the year she tried to make her mark on the winery reputation (i guess kinda like didier's son). it's one of her favorites apparently. the guests at her daughter's wedding (the granddaughter's mother's wedding) drank the 79 in her honor. the talbot was delicious. really smoooooth, tannins were soft but had good grip, and the fruit was crystal clear. i seriously need to use my nez du vin kit because there were so many aromas i swear i smelled before but couldnt identify. i thought it had a little fish smell. the comtesse was [​IMG] well. hmmm. it was most certainly delicious. i wrote pine needles in my tasting notes and i find that karen macneil describes pichon comtesse as sometimes producing wines that taste like pine trees dripped in chocolate i can still recall the taste. rich fruit jerkyish smells (first thing i thought was port), soft tannins, bright clear fruit. really distinct flavor, something i've never had before. i want to say truffle like flavors but ive only tasted truffle oil so i dunno. what was really amazing was how it kept changing in the glass and in your mouth. like the essence was still the same but the side aromas kept changing. and in your mouth there was so much going on. every time i tasted it i added new notes. it tasted like crystal clear fruit one taste and the next there were all these citrusy floral notes. anyways, while it was delicious (-_- i actually let out a little giggle. oh man felt like a little girl) i'm not sure if i would pay $125 for it. i think i'd rather save up for some d'yqem or something. or buy some pur sang [​IMG] i'm so happy.
