    Broker handles both ends.

    How the fuck can he handle "both ends"? Who would he be buying from? Oh yeah, the guy selling without a license. Nice try, douchebag.

    They're really all just barrel selections and the names for the chateau's 2nd wine and in some cases 3rd wine sometimes change.
    The 3rd is now actually named Pauillac de Pichon Lalande, and the 2nd ,Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

    Wait, is this meant seriously? And you think you know about wine?

    Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is the FIRST wine of the Chateau of the same name. It is a Second Growth according to the 1855 classification.

    The Chateau produces a second wine called Reserve de la Comtesse.

    Guys, this is a scam. It's Kalra/styleman, etc. Same poaster, I am certain.

    This part is rich.

    You make four kinds of statements in this thread

    1) Pathetic boasts ("my GF is 35 years younger than me")

    2) Cheap insults ("loser" "prole" etc)

    3) Errors (e.g., no Pomeral is ever 100% Merlot)

    4) Banal observations that everyone already knows (In Burg, Grand Cru is higher than 1er Cru)

    I am sure know more than me about something, but wine isn't it.


    Manton, you're boring me now with trivial crap just like all middle class morons.
    1. actually she's 39 yrs my junior
    2. you are a mindless prole and I'll bet anything you voted for Obama
    3. Petrus is not 100% merlot and besides it's irrelevant because the grape variety isn't that important. The quality of the grape is and the types planted are dependant on the soil in various parts of the property
    4. That's not what I said but you're too stupid to understand it. I said that a Burgundy simply labelled Premier Cru as in for example Meursault Premier Cru or 1st Cru can come from any of the premier crus in Meursault and is usually a blend. That is not the same as a Premier Cru where Meursault and then the actual premier cru vinyard is named.
    Now you're dismissed and I won't respond anymore.

    This is what they teach you in prole school? How gauche.

    I agree, I've seen this method of posting from someone that's banned.

    I also like the thought that the varietal of the grape is not "important." I think this is the best lulz in his whole schtick, particularly since he dismissed wine made from Concord grapes (which is correct, but not in keeping with the concept).

    Icewine from Tempranillo? Something light and bubbly from Syrah?

    Who are you going to trust, the random proles behind "internet websites," or Petrus, who has been literally bathing in first growths since the day he was born? I think we all know the answer here...
