    QOTD? Lurker Style? You Ask?

    Ok…Domaine Richaud 2003 Les Estrambords

    I have about 176 bones into this wine.

    I taste it..I love..try it again..I hate it.

    Try again and find myself in the middle.

    What do I do?

    I cannot find ratings on it…in English.

    Who can I turn too? You GV?

    Can you decipher this wine for me? or for us?

    I know I am not the only one sniffy sniffing 2003 Les Estrambords

    I agree alot with your nose and palate..your like some psycho unknown twin on the net.

    Anyways…Other lurkers please rate..or GV if you have time Please rate.

    Otherwise my fantasy and exile are doomed in my constant up and down purchase of this wine.

    Thanx a million for us Grape Suckas in Seattle!!

    OK…NEWB lurker here..wanting some attention.

    2003 Domaine Richaud, Les Estrambords…I like to eat those fresh organic carrots then give myself an after shave slap in the face before doing the GV “Bite the Wine(vin)” taste test.

    I may be odd…which is normal in Seattle(rain monster) but hey..carrot palate stained breath is truly a new way to drink wine. I started off by eating carrots and then tasting beer. I knew I was onto something.

    Sorta like..farmer Joe meets Francois in a futuristic organic Starbucks.

    (BTW..thats the buzz here in Seattle) Organic wine coffee bars..Late Nite!!!!

    Not that I am excited..I am just in the KNOW. So open all the veggie late night bars serving bean/grape fusions as you can. It is a whole extract Starbuck culture I wish them not to capitalize on so…..

    Taste my 2003 Les Estrambords and help me define an exit strategy on this evasive wine.

    Number one right now has to be the Toad Hollow Erik’s the Red blend. It is our “go to” wine for about $12. Put it up against the $30 2003 Estancia Meritage this past weekend and it blew it away. Also worth mentioning, Bridlewood 2005 Reserve Viognier- found it on sale at our local grocery. Really nice buy for $14. Also enjoying the Trevor Jones Tawny “Jonesy” port right now.

    Three favorite wines:

    – Chateau Cheval Blanc (St. Emilion) – had a bottle of 1988 once and it blew my doors off

    – Elderton Command Shiraz (Barossa Valley) – like drinking jam

    – Leewin Artist Series Chardonnay (Margaret River) – very Burgundian (had to throw in a white)

    Not every day drinkin’, but good nonetheless!

    QOTD: 2001 Royal Tokaji 5 puttonyos, a 2006 Dr Loosen Beerenauslese, and a 2006 Villa Maria Sav Blanc. They just happened to be the last three wines Ive drank, and I enjoyed all three of them. Works for me.

    Just opened up the Fleur des Pins and it’s incredible; it’s basically drinking a pina colada. Thank you so much for the tip, I’ve visited your store multiple times now (I live in Hoboken) and consider it my mecca for wine. Sincerely, Dan D.

    my favorite wine is a chateau saint jean chardonnay. You should rate this on one of your episodes as i am curious to see what others think of it. I feel that it is a great wine under $20

    I want to see more episodes like this. Maybe one every couple months. When you do episodes like this, you tend to do wines that you think are a good QPR. I like the educational shows, too, but every once in awhile I’m just looking for wines that someone out there thinks are a bargain, so I can target them. I give them a try, and if I agree with the reviewer, I can salt in some bargain bottles.
