    I’d never heard of Godello before. Another new varietal to seek out!

    QOTD: Oooh this is a tough one. Maybe Mas de Daumas Gassac in the Languedoc, but I’m not quite sure!

    Just purchased a bottle of 2005 Castelo do Papa Godello for dinner tonight – Angle hair pasta with basil, roma tomatoes, real mozzarella and fresh parm (from Parma, Italy, of course). I met one of the vineyards directors at a local store last fall and I’ve been looking for a reason to pick up a bottle. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hope to see the one-red-laser-eyed oak monster in a future show.

    And you are the Werewolf, don’t lie.

    qotd; Caves Jean Bourdy in Chateau-Chalon, Jura France. they make yellow wine, which I have finally gotten ahold of. Between me and my restaurant, we so far have 3 of the 5 bottles allocated to our state. I’ve been trying to get this wine for nearly 2 years now, so hopefully it’s good! Also from what I have been reading, they rank among the best 3 wineries in France that excel in both red and white. [this is according to a group of french sommeliers, the other 2 wineries are Romanee-Conti and Haut-Brion.] They go on to say that Jean Bourdy’s 1947 blanc [not their jaune], is perhaps the greatest french white wine of the 20th century, and that their 1865 blanc is perhaps the greatest french white of the 19th century. The winery has been in the family for 14 generations, since the 1700’s. Most of all, I love that most people & even some U.S. sommelier’s that I have spoken to don’t really know that much if anything about the winery, vin jaune, or even the region of Jura. But, if i don’t like their vin jaune, [I’m saving it], I’m gonna go with Petrus. You talk about length of finish. Only wine I’ve ever had where I could still smell the bouquet after nearly 60 full seconds after having smelled it.
    And Gary, you don’t like lurker’s? and want more comments? Then mine is I’d love to see you do an episode on vin jaune’s, and I’d love to see you do a tasting of the different charbono’s out there.

    QOTD: I would have to go to Chateau Le Puy in the Cotes de Francs. I have wanted to go there since i have got into wine. It was the first “serious” wine that i ever tried. The estate is VERY old school and they have verticals of cases going back to the early 1900’s. I would love to hear Jean Pierre Amoreau talk about bio-dynamic winemaking.

    I’ve wanted to meet Aimé Gilbert from Mas de Daumas Gassac ever since seeing Mondovino, so good heads up Kristen.
    But for me my heart will always be at Muga, the first winery I visited.
    As for one I haven’t seen, maybe chateau Rayas, just because they don’t accept visitors and I have a feeling they would not be trying to impress me but just keep doing their own thing ignoring me so I could see the real side of their story
