A local grocer had it for $7 too, so you can’t beat that. I’ll be at a wedding though so I’ll drink whatever they’re pouring.

    Great episode. I should start using one of those social network bookmarking sites to keep track of the really good episodes.

    QOTD: You know, I wouldn’t have thought of it if you hadn’t mentioned Rosé, but I would definitely be excited to drink the Marquis de la Tour NV Brut Rosé for New Year’s.

    Probably a GROWER CHAMPAGNE. I think i will choose Pierre Peters, Margaine, Chartogne-Taillet, or Henri Billiot. Great question from the newbie.

    Hey Gv ~ Gotta be honest, I think I could find just as interesting wines at my local wine shop and actually be able to afford them, $25 a glass is a bit steep and with the reviews you gave, not sure I’d seek them out at any restaurant ? This is one of my big gripes about restaurants and the comments about restaurant wines, if the wines are restaurant style and from lesser known vintages you would think the prices would reflect that, but they never do. So I have to settle for mediocre wines in even high class restaurants and then go home and pop a bottle of decent wine. Enough ranting.
    Still liking the road show though,keep ‘em coming ! liked the Walla Walla Syrah reference)

    QOTD: I’m cracking open a 3 liter of my first vintage of wine, a 2000 Columbia Valley Syrah from Griffins Crossing Winery. Cheers ~ Max

    I don’t know yet what I will have for New Years this year as I am attending a wine dinner at Rancho San Juan near Santa Fe and they will be pulling bottles from their huge cellar for the dinner. If past experience holds will be some amazing wines including a high end vintage grower champagne.

    William Rhodes. He looked a bit stiff on the intro, but he came across really cool (maybe a little bit Matt Damon from “The talented Mr Ripley”), as if there was a mini GV trying to get out. I liked the reference earlier to “Sir Gary”! (and boy can he knoack that wine back) :)

    I’d love to go to that place on an expense account (although I doubt my boss would sign off on the final bill!).

    QOTD – One wine on New year’s Eve? I’m not a big Champagne groupie so I think it would have to be a Madeira or Port, something like a 15 year old or a good Vintage, that I can savour the flavours as the bells ring in 2008.

    I love these “on location” shows! The dude started slow, but came on strong.

    QOTD: Aldo Conterno Barolo Granbussia Riserva 1989

    Super-fun episode. I’m a little disappointed that SS tagged William as “Geek Boy”, but I loved the episode.

    QOTD: New Year’s Eve we throw a dinner party for 6-8 of our closest friends. Since I am not sure what we are serving as yet (my wife the “Executive Chef” is still deciding), I cannot say for sure. But I am thinking that we will be having some nice Bordeaux, perhaps a 1995 from the left bank.

    2002 Bordeaux the ideal restaurant wine? Bullshit! Fact is that many persons not experienced in wines will order wines in restaurants because that is what people do. So they won’t probably notice that they just bought an overpriced wine. Thats how the wineindustry works: Dump all the crap into the restaurants. Of course there are restaurants with good and economical wine lists.

    New Years Eve wines:

    1) 2002 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Chardonnay
    2) 1998 Canon-Mieux – a Bordeaux wine from the Canon Fronsac region. It was the fist Bordeaux I purchased in quantity. I was a novice, ut this is a decent quaff.

    How do you like that – I already have them picked out!

    Awesome series of shows. I think I already answered a QOTD in a later episode, but I drank Peregrine Pinot Noir, and Duval-Leroy Brut NV. After seeing GV talk about grower’s champagne I wish I had made the effort to find something a little more special. Don’t have to wait until next New Year’s to find some though.

    Qotd – Prosecco early on and then to a nice Champagne. No specific producers, but something I haven’t had before.

    Another fun episode. The glasses are a little pricey, but its still interesting to see you go into a restaurant and talk it up with the som. QOTD: My 2000 Royal Tokaji true essencia. BUT!!!…. Im saving that for the day ( hopefully ) I get married. Maybe if I get a second bottle of the essencia I’ll open one before then.

    QOTD: Got a few bottles of F. Bonnet 1999 champagne, not sure how much longer it will last so probably a few bottles of that and then something red for a winter warmer, maybe some LBV port to ensure the requisite hangover.

    Kudos to William. He brought some real “content” to the show. Great episode. Thanks Gary.

  • corkscrew

    Guy looks like a Clark Kent without the muscles, but good guest..wonder with these prices if they are still in business…QOTD-maybe a 82 Lafite…. http://www.winelx.com

    qotd: anything I haven't had before.
    Cool episode love the Au Bon Climat wines, had lunch w Jim Clendenen last year, great guy who has a great team working with him making great wines. For a really good really old world style wine made in the new world try their mondeuse.

    p.s. I'll totally beat you in a pencil fight Gary

    A local grocer had it for $7 too, so you can’t beat that. I’ll be at a wedding though so I’ll drink whatever they’re pouring.
