    :)

    don't let that hold you back from surrounding me with old Krug.


    I do like the brighter/fresher styles. Too old and too yellow and all i can taste is oxy.

    Anybody know what the term aldehydic wines mean? It's been hard to google. I was reading a tom Stevenson article on selosse and he was shitting on anselme for making champagnes that are too aldehydic. Aldehydes are so varied in aromas from almonds to oranges to sage

    It refers to wines that make you hiccup. It's an onomatopoeic term.

    this is fantastic. i think it'd be even better with another 10 years of age. hints of petrol but not much. it's on the sweeter side tho. the color reminds me of really concentrated urine tho. good thing it tastes awesome




    anybody have experience with aged trocken wines? do dry rieslings age ok?

    All riesling styles can age very well, so I've read.
    I believe drier rieslings tend to take on more of the minerality and petrol notes as they age.

    I've loved the 2001 Trimbach Cuvee Frederik Emile and the de Signeurs de Ribeaupierre -- the latter a Gewurtz.They are two of my very favorite whites.

    I miss not having 100 bottles of wine like I used to (and the disposable income to have them). There's nothing more than I would like right now than a decent glass of wine, as lately all I have been drinking is plonk. That Frederik Emile would be perfect. I have like 25 or so that are worth aging doing so doing, but far from me -- were they here they would tempt me too much. Humbug.

    Manton's $10 Rhone coupled with my $13 Finger Lakes riesling. What's the problem here?

    The problem is I paid $21 for a ho-hum Provence rosé. Damn PA state booze monopoly.

    I don't really like the sweeter Rieslings unless it has a lot of age. I had some 2011 donhoff kabinett recently and didn't particularly care for the sweetness.

    Nice thing about Freddy Emile's is that they always go on sales once a year. So underrated and it's a good price to begin with too. And you can find an aged bottle in random places for prices similar to the current vintages.

    Had dinner at craigie on main in boston. Meal was fantastic. Seasoning was generally wonderful. Haven't eaten so well since daniel. We had a 2008 jm pillot chassagne Montrachet lieut dit (I forgot half bottles age so quickly. The slight bit of oak with the age was just so good) and a 2011 produttori del barbaresco langhe (really opened up after some time). Capped it off with VEP chartreuse green and yellow for prices half of what I've seen in NYC.

    Good day

    :(. Why you feel sick brah?

    You're right tho. I was a little buzzed and looking at jt looks overly familiar and hyper saccharine but next time I post I'll check in with you first and make sure it doesn't offend your delicate sensibilities.

    Mascaró Cuvée Antonio Mascaró Gran Reserva '07 (Cava). Tasty (maybe slightly too acidic).
