KSC02, don't worry. I have my shorts and t-shirt picked out. I even bought a new pair of Reef sandals for the occasion. After all, you only turn 35 once. Cool

Instant divorce I've been told for: Bermuda shorts with socks and black dress shoes, comb-over, or short cut-off jeans and tide-dye T-shirt. You don't even want to go to the thong thing Horse

I've got about 15 bottles standing up, but one I'm going to open soon will be the 2004 Lascombes, based on the positive experience with the 2004 Smith Haut Lafitte.


Just one more sip.

Okay, thanks to my friends currently drinking in the great city of Montreal, ( and their text photos) we are adding the '55 Montrose to our off-line tomorrow night.

Good for you and if your bottle is half as good as the one we enjoyed you are in for a treat.

Do any of these have enough sediment to stand? Just curious. Smile

I would stand the two above, without looking at the specific bottles.

You just don't know, so I lean to the safe. I've had wines with loads of sediment and just a few years old.

On the opposite side of the coin, when LB opened his '55 Montrose the other night there was absolutely no evidence of sediment whatsoever.

So go figure......

The two shiraz will probably have some sediment. The Pol Roger is already standing up and I would be surprised if the sauternes had anything in it.

It is kind of a crapshoot I suppose. I've had young tempranillo that threw tons of sediment, and yes, older wines with little to none.

tlily, Randy (or other winemakers), any rhyme or reason as to which wines are likelier to form precipitates in-bottle?
