Re: At What Price Point Will You Boycott The 2008 Taittinger Comtes?

If you look back historically, DP, Cristal, and Comtes were always within 10% of each other up until the late 80s/early 90s (not vintages, but timeframe). At that point, Cristal started to accelerate, Comtes went up a bit and DP kind of stayed flat. By the late 90s/early 00s (again timeframe and no...

TN - 2010 Dom Perignon - the doomed middle sibling of 2008 and 2012 is a real beauty

2008 recently released, 2012 eagerly anticipated, a general price increase and COVID. It would seem 2010 Dom Perignon has so many things against it on the outside, but on the inside it is a truly beautiful thing. And that is all that matters to me. 2010 Dom Perignon Lovely young champagne color, aft...

Re: What's your favorite Chambertin (and Beze) besides Rousseau and Leroy?

Gelin does a very fine Beze too, and used to also have a Mazi, but they are quite rustic and need proper aging to come around. They are to my liking, but if you find Faiveley wines of old to be a bit rustic for your tastes, then you may not care for Gelin. I'd say they've become a lot more polished...

Re: What's your favorite Chambertin (and Beze) besides Rousseau and Leroy?

On Chambertin, I am hard pressed to have a long list of favorites. The Leroy version is of course spectacular given enough time, but for me Rousseau is the greatest of them all- and in a way that puts it in the rare company of winemakers like Soldera, DRC and Egon Muller for achieving such an incred...

Re: 2020 VDP Grosser Ring Auction Thread

In last year's sale, Zilliken brought a Spatlese, Auslese and LGK Auslese. As Brian reports, only an Auslese this year. This 2019 at 66 Euros, with 180 bottles offered, is down from the 70 Euros achieved last year for 240 bottles of the same wine.
