    QOTD: 2004 Chateau Greysac. Just a bottle I picked up at Whole Foods for about $18-20, but it was not good… not good at all…

    03 Leoville Barton…… Wine was great but i was speculating that the wine spectator was naming it #1 a couple years back so i bought a TON of it to try to capitalize on that and it let me down and was rated ONLY #3!! DissApOinTing

    QOTD: Had a whole bunch at a Bordeaux tasting two weeks ago. They did certainly improve as the price went up, but the $100 wines were not exciting. Ended up going with a $20 CDR (my favorite region currently) and enjoyed that much more.

    QOTD: I feel like a copy cat when I say I’m cabernet and merlot’ed out. I prefer Burgundy, Rhone, Gascogne, Spain, Portugal, Italy…… I’ve never had a high end Bordeaux though.

    QOTD: In retrospect, I probably over rated it…
    2001 Château de Fieuzal (France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan) 9/23/2008 AMM3RD 87
    Second time around this wine was a little disappointing. Oak, Oak, Oak. Some good fruit that was unfortunatly spoiled. Don’t get me wrong it’s not bad, but it could be much better. I will wait for a few years to try my next…AMM (267 views) http://www.cellartracker.com

    QOTD: I had a 2002 Chateau d’Issan that really was terribly boring. I’ve had other Issans that rocked, but the 2004 effort was poor for my palate.

    QOTD: 1995 Carruades de Lafite Pauillac. I have been gifted four bottles of this wine in 2008 and 2009. All four bottles have been way past their peak.

    what is the difference between black current and cassis?

  • http://twitter.com/hoholick Joe Hoholick

    Paul. I have 2 cases of the 2001 Lambrays. Is it drinking good now? When should I start to consume?

  • Paul C

    Hi Joe, it should be delicous now. Why wait? In life there could be anything just round the corner.

    Cheers,

    Paul.
