there's an offley baron de forrester tawny colheita 1980 for $58.50 but anything beyond that is out of my price range. next would be a 1935 for $517.

i appreciate that you've all put up with my 'novice'-ness with wine. i do learn a lot from this board.

port is new to me. only recently have i been introduced to stuff like tokaji, madeira, sherry, and port.

I'm making chili tonight - using PH's recipe - for consumption tomorrow night at a family gathering.

I'll be doubling the recipe - based on the size of my family. I do live in Utah, after all.

That's a lot of pressure, gigabit! Eek I hope it comes out well. Had some leftover a few days ago with some sharp cheddar and a dollop of sour cream. Hit the spot.

marcb7: Clicky.....

It uses ground beef AND beans, so not for the purists among us. A good basic recipe to work off of though.

Looking forward to some roast wild duck, though the desk did say there might be some woodcock.


I did indeed have roast wild duck with roast potatoes. Wonderfully good.

On the same trip (got back this morning) had a nice roast pheasant breast with bacon, chestnuts and brussel sprouts.


Looking forward to those mags of '08 Salon.

Sounds very nice, Jabe. Where in Epernay? If you drive the 10 minutes to Ay, Le Vieux Puits is the best restaurant we found in the region.


Just one more sip.

Making lasagne tonight for some friends. Guessing that leftovers will be dinner for the next few days after that at least.

Osso Bucco last night at Italian Village. Good, but it's better at Carlucci IMO.

No, but we had a really nice 2002 red Burg. They only have 1 vintage of Par Sang remaining on their list.

We ate at Chez Max, in Magenta. Don't be fooled by the cheesy flashing neon sign in front...the food is very good.

Would you recommend it or have you liked other places better? I expect to be heading back to Champagne next year. Our final night is always a picnic Champagne dinner in the hotel courtyard. Other than that and Le Vieux Puits, we'll probably look for a new place.


Just one more sip.
