    When I think of the term Terroir, I think of Gevrey Chambertin. It’s special. It’s spectacular. In fact instead of tickets to the thunder cruise, surprise me with a bottle of Serafin in a secret pack!

    QOTD: Jets :-)

    With all respect but is this man full of shit or what ? I encourage his enthousiasme but please do it in the wright perspective. Ok, he loves wine, he’s passionated about taste but don’t rediculize the French winemakers by tasting and comment their wines like he does. For the record, i’m no ‘close’ minded traditionalist but please…

    Hey Gary:

    Definitely go with the long or longer hair. The hair is way too short. For the suicide pool, I am going with the Vikings against the Packers.

    Go with the long hair (maybe even like you used to have it, spiked up all over).

    I’m really happy your turning people onto Burgundy. Yes, I have had some lovely Pinots from Oregon and California. (I lived in Napa for a couple of years-loved it when the fog rolled in, after a gorgeous sunny day-and in the fall, the air just reeks of fermenting grapes!)I would drink them again and again. But oh do I LOVE Burgundy!! Now I live in Berkeley where on one end of my street I have Kermit Lynch and 2 blocks from my house I have North Berkeley imports. 2 great importers of Burgundy wines! I have become a Burgundy addict! I spent my stimulus check on Burgundy….my christmas bonus…Most of 2005 went into the “cellar”. 2006 seems a bit more ready to drink. I would like to recommend Jean-Luc Dubois, Chorey-lès-Beaune as a good example of a more affordable and elegant expression of Burgundy.

    Longer hair is better I think. (Although wine drinkers “generally” fall into the more sensuous lot-who I think love the feel of the shortly shaved head)

    Hi Gary! I think everyone looks better with hair. Football, I don’t want to think about right now (after lame Pats loss to lowly Dolphins). I have enjoyed some Oregon Pinots, most recently from Belle Valle. But that last Burgundy you tasted certainly seems incredible!

    Nice stuff. I made beef bourguignon the classic way with a bottle of red burgandy. The broth was so good you could drink shots of it. Paired with a beaujoulis, it was one of the best meals Ive ever had. QOTD: Its 4 months too late, but I would have said my beloved ( and pathetic ) Seahawks.
