2003 Noblaie Chinon Rouge

    I might pop the bottle of Noblaie I bought from WL tonight. Different vintage but I think you tasted it in the 200th episode. Man, no wonder Gary never posts responses in the comments anymore, besides being swamped he constantly gets second guessed. I just don’t get that, but oh well the show must go on….

    I definitely think we need to do an updated vacqueyras, just had one for the first time (07 murailles), SPECTACULAR! 50/50 soil driven vs fruit driven wine, amazing.

    Nice hair.

    Vacqueyras and Chinon! Definitely 2 underrated French wines. Especially Vacqueyras in my opinion, {but I have had alot more of that than Chinon.} one of the 1st wines I added to my wine list. Although the underrated part is kinda nice since you can get great wines from there that are still at affordable prices.
    Speaking of underrated wines, how about doing a vin jaune or charbono tasting Gary? That would be fantastic to see.

    Ciao Gary

    Did a search here for Vacqueyras, one of my favourite Rhone wines and saw just two episodes! Can we have a Vacqueyras episode soon, esp with the 07 CdPs kickin ass, anyone “balling” lower would get some great value here.

    Take Care

    I have had a Vacqueyras before but not the other two, not sure if drinking a salad seems appealing.. http://www.winelx.com

    Vacqueyras is where its at if you ask me, some of the best value even in 2011.
    As for Chinons and cab franc in general, I have to say THANK YOU GARY, if there is one varietal you made me discover its this one and once that happens you wanna try everything else you don’t know. FYI the niagara region in Ontario also makes great cab franc but its noit cheaper than chinon, so …
