    this is all getting a little too advanced for me. Can we go back to talking about MILFS?

    Why are you hung up on varietals? :roma:

    How about sloppy-seconds??

    I tried a 2000 Clos du Marquis this weekend and really enjoyed it. This is Leoville Las Cases' second wine, but unlike most other seconds, this one has it's own dedicated vineyard just a short distance from big brother. Very nice structure, strong tannins and nice black fruit. I may pick up some 2006 as it is pretty easily available and would be drinkable soon I think. Anyone else ever try this wine?


    I have... ime think for the same price (at least the going price in manahttan) or less you can get a nicer 4th or 5th growth (or perhaps even 3rd).

    2008 JL Giguiere Pinot Noir Mossback for dinner. WTSO buy a few weeks ago. Light earth, fruit and a tad of smoke on the nose, cherries, cola, and mild tannins on the tongue.

    It's their 3rd wine.
    And my advice is to ignore that list made up in 1855 of the Bordeaux wines for the Paris exhibition. You have a handful of wines at the very top and any of the other top estates can sometimes make wine just as good on occasion. At any rate, the differences are not great and just amounts to small nuances.

    Dude, every single actual fact in this post is not only known to all the regulars in this thread, it's also already been posted int this thread.

    Your time here is wasted, why not move on?


    There are many neophytes and even some regular wine drinkers who don't know this. And if it doesn't apply to you then just move on.
    And why do you peasants whose grandparents were probably drinking rot gut whisky get so offended when someone writes something? You sound a bit insecure to me and unsure of your social class. Sort of like Marvin Shanken at the wine Spectator [​IMG]

    There are only two real possibilites here.

    1) You are who and what you say you are--an old man with a young wife, a lot of money and nice wine who likes to brag about himself and insult other people on the Internet.

    2) A liar who made all of the above up but who still likes to brag about himself and insult other people on the Internet.

    Either way, you are a worthless asshole. That should be clear even to you.

    I happened to be looking to buy some clothes but saw this food and wine section and had a question. It appears that Petrus is the expert here so I'll ask him. I inherited a small cellar from my grandfather, about 800 bottles, and was wondering if the wine is still good. It's sort of old and some of the bottles like this Clos de Beze and Clos de Tart are from 1959. Can burgundies this old still be drinkable?
    Is that picture your girlfriend, she's really super.

    Thank-you
    pm me if you're interested in selling anything.
