    Hi Gary

    How did the AF Gros Pommard open up after a day or two in the decanter?

    great show with terrific content! loved how you would not rate The Gros. like you i can not begin to guess how supertight wines from wonderful vintages will be like in a decade or two. always interesting to me how everyone else in the wine world can do this though, Hmmm.

    you ever see Black Jack McDowell’s rookie card he looks just like me dude!

    QotD: my buddy David in Fla. loves fine wine, knows what is good and why, funny as hell when he 1st begins to drink. sadly alcohol is a big problem in his life and this reminds me to preach, and live, moderation.

    Great episode. Thanks! I love burgundy. It is my favorite. I will look for the Maillard here in Colorado.

    QOTD: I love to drink with my wife and my friend who is from France. We all have a great time.

    By the way, have you ever tried to use an Eisch wine glass? They say that two minutes in this glass is like 2 hours in a decanter, I have found that wine does open a lot when I use them. The wine glass really does make a difference.

    Paul Larensten (I probably f’d his last name up but whatever). He is the most rockinest awesomest person to drink wine with in the entire world. If you want his address and phone number or email hit me up. I love the dude.

    Anyone who loves the wine I’m loving. So that translates usually into my daughter with a Turley or my son with a Bordeaux.

    Good show!
    Love the Burgundies, but they are expensive!
    QOTD – My wife. She is my best frined and companion and we love to sip a glass of wine or two and catch up after a long week.

    QOTD: My favorite person to drink wine with is definitely my friend, Mr. W. Murray Sexton, who is the proud owner of a signed copy of “101 Wines”. He is most certainly a sucker for Australian Shiraz, but I did introduce him the other day to Catalonian Tempranillo, and he was fascinated. I always enjoy going to his place and enjoying new wines with him. Thank you, Gary, for making us expand our palates.

    Hell yeah I have an old school wristband! I got it in Boston this summer!

    QOTD: I probably like to share a bottle (or two) with my wine group in Madison or with other friends and family.

    QOTD: I’ve tasted wine with a lot of colleagues, wine distributors, and friends, but as cheesy as it is, I’ll always enjoy having a glass of wine with Mamma Dukes the most.

  • Logan

    QOTD: My best friend in Tokyo and my only close fellow American here, Jesse, whom is probably the only person I can really dissect the flavor profile of wine with while we drink together. We’re both big fans of South American wine, although neither of us have money so we usually drink the cheap stuff! Of course talking about cheap and even poorly-made wine is still fun, even if that consists of dissing on it while enjoying!

    As usual Gary comes up with colorful ways of describing wine flavour and bouquet that elude other wine experts. Even the depth with which he declined to give a score to the Anne-Francois Gros wine was done with distinction.

    QOTD: Oddly enough, it is very special to share a very moderate amount of wine with my 11-year old daughter. Her palette has no preconceptions whatsoever. She is learning to respect the whole process of wine and that is a good learning experience for me too. She likes it with fine imported cheese, even some of the very aromatic blues.

    Thanks for the get well shout – much appreciated!

    QOTD ~ Whew…Drink wine at work (FOR work) with lots of people, but to really ENJOY the experience? Probably my friend Terry, she and I will do the sniffy-sniff forever before finally tasting our wines, then we just look at each other and make the most fabulous faces to express our enthusiasm (sometimes our dismay – yuck), then we switch glasses and try each other’s wine. We have a similar tast profile, but she likes the stinky ones (Italian) more than I do. She’s the Tignanello fan. I’m more Bordeaux-style blends, or Cote du Rhone CNDPape.

    Another great show. Ive had a few wines from Burgandy and enjoyed them both. QOTD: My parents. Like me, they havent had a wide selection of wines from around the world, so its fun to experience a new type of wine along with them.

    qotd: My friend Vinnie… last summer I was lucky enough to be able to hang out with him about once a week to try new stuff and along side favorites. It was pretty cool because we have very very similar palates and we branched way outside of our comfort zone and discovered a lot of new wines over the course of the summer.
