tonight, 2000 Produttori Barbaresco Ovello, pale ruby, nice floral nose, plum, anise, white pepper, good acidity, very long finish with some fine tannins remaining, probably close to peak now but no hurry to drink these up.

Great to hear! I just picked up a few of these! People seem to be buying up the Bee Blocks, but the Home Blocks don't seem to get as much attention.

I bought a mixed case, 3 bottles each of the Varner bottlings and 3 of the Neely. This was the first one I opened.


Just one more sip.

I'm mulling over a six-pack of Varner (Bee & Home Block), or the '11 Aubert (Lauren and Ritchie). Decisions, decisions...

I had the '82 Leoville Poyferre in London with Birdungy in November. It was a wonderful bottle of mature Bdx. Hope yours was equally as enjoyable.

Tonight, to celebrate two days in a row wearing a shirt and tie.... a 1998 Leoville Barton paired with a grilled skirt steak and some potatoes fried up in some duck fat. It worked just fine. Still alive and kickin'.....

It was LB, no idea if it will improve but who cares when it is drinking so well right now.

- 2010 Schweinhardt Lohrer Berg Scheurebe Spatlese

Scheurebe is one of my favorite varietals, and this one doesn't dissapoint. Incredible QPR at $12.

I thought you recently stated in another post that you drink plonk? I'm still waiting to see evidence to support this!

Shirt and tie??? WTF! We need to chat.

How was the 98'? Ive found the left bank to be more accessible in this vintage.

I'd chat, but the friggin' necktie is restricting my breathing..... Mad Wink The 98 LB was lovely. Nothing breathtaking, but classic Bordeaux and ready to go. Found a straggler recently. Best $35 bottle of Bordeaux I've ever had for sure.....

I was impressed with the 76's. The 1970 is over the hill, the younger Rioja's were good just not that impressive and the Priorats were very tight.
