Love the sports cards intro, only a shame no big names came out the pack. Would’ve been interesting to have seen GV’s reaction if a jet came out…

  • Whoa! I just went in to read my comment and say that the one just before had the same final four picks!!!! Now I'm sure I'm right!

  • angelatcarlson

    We had a Gigondas at work that was pretty decent, especially for $14.
    Unfortunately it didn't sell well enough to keep it on the shelves : (
    Thanks for giving the lesser-known areas more attention.

  • JayZee13

    Why, yes, I've had several bottles of Gigondas over the years. I've always called it baby CDP.

    QOTD: Kansas, West Virginia, Georgetown, Duke

  • Lb_in_KS

    Would LOVE seeing Kansas AND Kansas State making it there…

  • Great laid back episode Gary. Nice to see the couch again.

    I have not had a gigondas. But I do have both wines in my celly right now in case I see them the next time I take a trip to the wine store.

    QOTD 2: I really am not the person to base final 4 data off of, but you asked and here it is.

    Kansa, Kentucky, Villanova, Kansas St.

    Good luck


  • DCaragher

    GV – Makes me all warm and fuzzy seeing that nice leather couch!

    QOTD: Yes, I've had the Giggy! And my final four picks our Kansas, Cuse, Kentucky, and Villanova! Not that shocking I know, but I got a lot of upsets picked in the first two rounds! Go Murray State!

  • Mike in C-town

    Nice, tight show

    I have not had any Gigondas yet, but have some in the cellar. The St Damien should be peaking soon.
    I like the QPR of Gigondas, Vinsorbes and the Languedoc. Also grabbed some Pic St Loup after your show on it. Frankly alot of French wine scares the bejesus out of me, or more accurately my wallet. These deliver and at $25-30 are worth the spend.

    QOTD: Kansas (over Ohio State), Syracuse (over Minnesota), Duke, Kentucky (over W Virg)

  • Love the couch!

    QOTD 1: Also love gigondas – the beef jerkey flavors make my body melt.

  • Dawn9850

    QOTD: Haven't had a Gigondas yet, but now want to try and find them here in Tennessee!

  • Phil G

    Glad to see the couch again, I figured it was buried under wine cases or something…

    I gave had Gigondas, good stuff.

    QOTD – not likely, but I would love to see Cornell make a run.

  • side QOTD: Perrin et Fils Gigondas La Gille is the oily one that I've had more than once and a couple in the cellar. Thanks, will have to look for the Bosquets.
    QOTD: Georgetown, Xavier, Temple, Villanova – total uninformed guesses

  • Yes I drink tomato juice when flying as well, because its essentially like eating a whole tomato and provides some substance to your stomach. I need to find one of these wines.

    QOTD: Kansas vs Duke; Kansas wins it all.

  • facemelt

    LOL @ motor oil flavor…

  • alexfrommontreal

    Gary, I've been MIA for months now, life has gotten in the way.
    Side QOTD: I have never had Gigondas before, I am gonna hit up a wine bar now and see if I can get my fingers on some.

    QOTD: I always love to see duke play. I just like their style.

  • Weston3220

    had a $40 Gigondas recently that was as bold as a $100 CdP, though the name of it escapes me.

    qotd: I do not follow sports, sorry
