OMG! Just had the 04 Delas Herimtage Bessard last night, I have to say that it’s the most balanced and well made wine I’ve ever tasted. The balance is crazy and combined with a ton of subtle lovely nuances it makes it almost worth the price tag ($110 is still quite above my normal range).

    why spit into a bucket with your favorite team’s logo on it? As a diehard Packer fan, I’d gladly spit into a Bears or Viking spit bucket ….

    QOTD: I watched this too late. :) But now I predict that when I get home to Maine, all the football fans will still be inconsolably depressed.

    I scored two bottles of the McPrice locally…yum. I get a lot of Brussel Sprout though underneath the fruit. Very nice. Let’s see how it fares tomorrow with some food.

    QOTD: Eli scrambles away from 50 possible sack opportunities, throws a prayer to his TE who catches it on his pinky while horizontal and getting crushed from both directions which leads to a last minute TD and Giant Superbowl rings all round. ;-)

    BTW 491 and counting…

    Great show. Glad you went on and treated yourself even though the last wine was a dud. My wine shop has Hermitage so I will look into buying one in the future. QOTD: Well obviously its way too late, but I was Giants all the way. I HATE the Pats and didnt want them to share the light with the 72′ Dolphins.

    Hermitage. I have to try it now. I am a big rhone fan and have never had the pleasure of hermitage. Don’t know if I am going to spend 110 bucks but I will seek out the varietal.
    Great show.

  • http://blogg.anderschokladprovning.se/ AndersN

    Crozes is the cousin wine, a bit less expensive but its syrah and not far from the same taste experience . Cave de Tain is a producer that makes both hermitage and Crozes-H

    Funny though, cause the Delas’ bessard is normally 100 % syrah…
