90/100

line of the day – ‘tight, like when you jump into a cold pool’

Always love the flip cam episodes. This one gets a 90 just for the egg-white nuggett of information alone.

    Nice little show. I don’t see how you could determine a real score for this wine given its youth. 2004? I have a lot of 2000’s that are just starting to be reasonable after several hours of decanting.

    QOTD: 2004? Well, I remember it for two very different reasons: 1) I visited Bordeaux which was great, and 2) My youngest nephew died at the age of 30 from a rare form of cancer. It was a very difficult time for my family.

    Good reference to SHRINKAGE!
    QOTD: 2004.. funny you just said that. I was looking at a friend of mines golf handicap in 04 and it was a 25. He’s now a 14. Pretty good improvement in just a few years.

    Gary,
    Bought a 05 Haut Brion at your store back in May and will definitely cellar it for awhile so I don’t encounter a La Mission episode like you. When you say 2004, I think of the evening I proposed to my wife in NYC after I surprised here with a weekend trip there for Valentine’s Day.

    I am a big fan of this wine. I have had several bottles in the past, mostly in Europe.

    QOTD – my dad passed away in 2004 and I think of him when this year comes to mind.

    Love your shows Gary, I just bought this wine to lay down so great to see your show on it.

    04 was birth of my son, so I’ll crack it open when he’s 18

    What I think of 2004 Bordeaux vintage, like you said with Jim Cramer invest in Latour :) Love the show. Have tried and bought some of the wines on the show. Some i like some not so much, but like you said it's all about expanding your pallet :) They filter the wine with egg whites and I read some where they also use gelatin??? Like to know a bit more about the oak new, used, french, american, toast, etc

  • John__J

    qotd: exactly what’s been said before, that ’04 Bordeaux is the last vintage where you can buy them before the $$$$ really went thru the roof
