Excellent customer service today after receiving the wrong pinot noir glasses. I recommend these Zenology glasses for everyday use. They are a slightly smaller version of the Zalto burg glass and have a ten year replacement guarantee. https://www.wineenthusiast.com/zenology-pinot-noir-wine-glasses?q...

Re: So let's compare 1996 Rousseau Chambertin and Chambertin close de Beze, and some other stuff

Great notes on the Rousseau wines. I haven't had them side by side but last year had the Beze and was very impressed. It has been a few years since I've had the Chambertin but have always loved that wine too. But when Covid is over I do have a 96 Chambertin ready for a dinner with wine friends.

Re: 85` Cristal Rose, 86` Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rose, 15` PYCM La Comme, 03` Raphet Charmes

I have only had a couple bottles of Champagne older than 20 years that would even make me consider cellaring them for much past 20 years - 1988 Krug CdM and 1966 Dom. I prefer the freshness and mousse of younger Champagne and if I want an older still wine, I'll have a white Burgundy.

Re: Those of you lucky enough to experience '61 Lafite...

The best Lafite 1961 I have had was out of magnum. the wines during this era tend to better in large format, probably from better barrels. Both the maligned 1970 and 1975 were much better out of big bottles. Good to know because I have a magnum of '61 Lafite left to try during it's 60th birthday.
