line of the day – ‘did these wines get scored a point higher because of a Jets victory. Yes’

Good positive show, with my highlight the scissor, paper, rock routine mid-tasting.

    A very happy show indeed!

    QOTD : some nice Rioja’s over the weekend (we went up north in the Basque Country), but now being on my own at home, I’ve changed to a nice Belgian white beer. Tomorrow, my boyfriend’ll return home again, so I think we’ll open a Campo de Borja.

    Nice show on my favorite chardonnays – Chablis!! Boy, that last one sounds wonderful, but it is a little pricey.

    QOTD: We’ve been drinking a lot of Spanish wines lately, some Riberas and a couple of Riojas and Priorats. Also some CDP and a Cote Rotie (Gangloff 2004 – wow!!!).

    Yay for fun facts!!!

    QOTD: It’s run the gamut from 2002 Château Haut Bailey to simple, but excellent Spanish grenaches because good wine comes from everywhere!

    Dude
    Nice to see a fellow chablis fan, I recently did a tour of drouhin in the motherland and they were a slight bit rude, but there wines were excellent. I sampled the vaudesir as well and found it impressive but not traditional. Fevre and Dauvissat wines have an extra level to them and they treat you like a king when you visit. I am sipping on a 2000 Bougros Bouguerets from Fevre which is carmel, bitter and sappy but long and balanced, it may be in a dumb stage, but interesting.

    Tks for the passion,

    Jeff
    I am buying a case of the gvain Rocq because I have 2,000 bottles of burgundy and need a change of pace. Like it…

    QOTD: Whatever I’m in the mood for. At the moment, drinking an ’05 Merlot from Oakstone.

    Sorry for the late comment. After 2 weeks vacation and another frantic couple of weeks back at work, I have a whole month of WLTV to catch up on.

    I love ordering Chablis at a restaurant and then seeing the looks from all the people who think they know wine but dont who think I’m an idiot for ordering cheap jug wine. QOTD: Really good stuff: Clerico Barbera D’alba (maybe you recommended it)- huge QPR over other peidmont reds

    Have never thought too much about chablis. Dont know that Id think about jugged wine if someone asked me about it, but its not something ive tasted a lot of. Time to rethink and retool the ol’ noggin! QOTD: The chianti I mentioned several episodes back.

    Hey Gary, really liked this episode a lot. For me what really put this as one of my favorite episodes of all time is the education factor. I love getting a little nerdy at the beginning of shows and learning about an appellation or some sort of wine fact related to the show. I think that it is definitely one of the best things you do with wine library tv. I sent you an email a while back really outlining my vast support for an education driven wine library tv. I didn’t get a response which is completely understandable. But I think other people agree with where I am coming from. Think about it.

    QOTD I started my wine journey with Sequoia Grove Cabernet and I spent the last 7 years enjoying California Cabs. I have recently been moving towards the Burgundies, both white and red. I drink cab at home because that is primarily what I bought for my cellar. Once I get away from home, definitely Burgundy!

    Good positive show, with my highlight the scissor, paper, rock routine mid-tasting.
