Have no fear, I have survived...it'll take more than a couple of wafer thin slices of foie to take me down! Work just consumes too much of my time lately. Don't get me wrong- I'd much rather this than the alternative. Cassoulet was fantastic last night btw...one portion left.

Still working on notes (left off after last weeks '97 Pine Ridge Rutherford). Here's what we've opened the last couple nights out with he TLV clan:

N.V. Comte Audoin de Dampierre Champagne Grande Cuvée Brut
2011 Saracco Moscato d'Asti
2002 Yves Boyer-Martenot Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières
2001 Peju Province Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Estate Bottled
1999 Copain Pinot Noir Dennison
2005 Novy Family Wines Syrah Parsons' Vineyard
2001 Alois Kracher Welschriesling TBA #8 Zwischen den Seen

K, I'm curious how the '99 Chateau Latour was drinking along with the '90 Beau Blanc.

The '99 Latour was 'off' (slightly corked but corked is corked)
The '90 BB showed well. Clean. Not as spectacular as the VV that basecadet brought to Mtl in September (which was stunning) but very enjoyable.

Frown... no such thing to me. One is pregnant or one is not.

Sorry to hear.

Tonight with chicken and fennel stew, 1998 Pegau Chateauneuf Cuvee Reserve, ripe berries, bacon, pepper, very long finish, excellent. Other than Beaucastel, the 1998 Chateauneufs that I've had in the last year or so are all drinking very well now.

2008 Castello di Volpaia Chianti Classico Riserva. Made from organic grapes this young Sangiovese is drinking surprisingly well. Soft tannins,sweet fruit, mild acidity and a beautiful nose. This was a gift from a long time client/friend who is recovering from cancer. He was thanking my wife and I for the organic foods we provide through our store.

We went up to the cottage with friends & our kids for Family Day/Heritage Day or whatever we call this excuse for not working. It's been pretty nippy (-21C in the evening), so we've spent more time bending elbows vs freezing our touchas off in this winter wonderland. Good thing I have a large wine cellar up here. So far:

2002 Brochet Hervieux Brut
2008 Jean-Claude Bessin La Fourchame La Piece au Comte Chablis
2009 Terredora Fiano di Avellino Terre di Dora
2004 Terredora Pago dei Fusi
2004 Fattoria Pupille Safredi
2005 Jonata El Corazón
2006 Jonata Todos
2006 d’Alessandro Syrah Cortona Il Bosco
2003 Bois de Boursan Cuvée des Felix

and there's one more day to go...

Jonanator, I saw this for sale locally @ $170 per 750ml. Based on your recent experience, is it a buy at this price?

It showed beautifully. Drinking great right now but with plenty of life left. I just wish I had some (friend brought it to dinner)!

At that price for a 750, that's a definite buy IMO. I savoured every last sip of this. Amazing stuff!
