    Will have to get some 06 Clinet. The 05 I bought and tasted will take forever to develop. An American girlfriend hm. Bet there are some single women who would be interested from this board alone.

    What a blast – making it real on location with real winemakers. I like this format. When you do a follow-up we’ll have to see the new girlfriend!

    Awesome show, Doing shows like this helps me remember specific producers much better than just drinking a bunch of wines back in the Jers.

    Great show, very dynamic :) I had the opportunity to taste the clinet 2006 and it was a complete shock for me, never expected a 2006 would be so good. Now i just need to score the 2005. :)

    keep up the good work !

    Wonderful stuff. Thank you both Gary and Ronin for allowing us to be a part of that. QOTD: Cant help you there, yet. Im doing my own fruitless search. Maybe if I find me one I cant get her to take a friend of hers with us and we can visit your chateau. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Catching up on my episodes still. I haven’t had a bordeaux in a while and it is time to go to the cellar for some pure french culture! Nice episode.
    How about the fantastic deals on 04s still available!!! Just for example, Clinet = ’04 $75, ’05 $185, ’06 $135
