    I'm jumping on her Nuits for $32 next time at Z's.

    Her Vosne-Romanee 1er was on Per Se's list for $340 [​IMG]

    And her Richebourgh is also on the list but prices range from $1,000 to $2,700 [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Whoa, I certainly didn't expect to be labeled a snob for recommending cru-Beaujolais over nouveau, but I do apologize for offending you!

    It seems that I may have stepped in the middle of some ongoing dispute between a number of you folks, and that's not at all where I like to find myself. If it's not too late, I think I'll just attempt to gracefully withdraw from this conversation and retreat back to lurking. But please know that I had no intention of offending anyone.


    Accepted. Although it must be said that there's no one on this board that wouldn't recommend a cru beaujolais over a BN. But some of us are interested in the fun of things and of trying different things regardless of whether or not it is the "best". So I'll continue to drink CB most of the time and sample a BN or two when they come out, just for fun.

    Oh good grief what's happening to our beloved thread? It's slowly turning into a a threak!!?? [​IMG]


    wine people are super cereal!

    If so then I'm Cap'in Crunch Yo!

    +1. Petrus, this thread is one of the very very very few threads on StyleForvm where we all get along for the most part. We have different tastes but we talk about things, debate them, chalk it up to personal tastes, etc, without being douchesacks. You don't need to prove to us how smart you are in wine. I can assure you that none of us give a flying fuck.

    +100...almost makes me not want to post here anymore [​IMG]

    Yes, the 2004. But only one bottle. [​IMG] Should have pulled the trigger on two or three.

    yes, but he has a GARBAGE palate, and it'll be totally wasted on him - I think he should flip it for a 20% profit.

    Paypal ok?

    [​IMG] I'll agree with the GARBAGE palate thing. I probably couldn't tell the difference between it and a BN, so...

    Has anyone had the Bouchard Pere & Fils 1st Cru Beaune du Chateau? I picked up a couple of bottles of the 2006 last night ($34). When I was logging them into cellartracker I found that they were on my wishlist there, which means that someone had recommended it to me at some point, but I can't remember who.

    Anyway, just curious.

    I also picked up a bottle of a 1999 Chateau La Bessane (Margaux) for about $41. Don't know anything about the producer. The only 1999 Bords I've had were a couple of bottles of Vieux Chateau Certain (Pom) which were pretty danged tasty. Not expecting the moon here, but if it's decent $41 seems pretty reasonable for an aged Margaux.

    I'll probably take it with me for Thanksgiving and I'll report back. The store had quite a few bottles at this price.

    A friend works for a company in Paris. She called one day and said that they were breaking out the Champers at 2. Regularly, too. Class.

    I tried some really expensive wine the other day..something like 1500 for the bottle. I'm going to ask the name of it and report back to SF's own wine expert, Petrus1, for verification (re: lulz).

    Any civilized country would do the same.
