Enjoyed two bottles of NV Ruinart BdB & fried chicken last night with TPE.

A great match.

I hope these two were showing well.

-2003 Léoville Las Cases... What did you think? Somehow I ended up with 6 bottles of this wine. Confused


Yes, they showed very well, especially Le Clos, which was more focused and precise at this point.

The '03 LLC is a very big wine, nowhere near ready. It will be outstanding when it grows up, but will never be typical of LLC.

He is very well. We spent two nights catching up.

TPE is touring the USA and visiting forum members and living large. Cool

I sent him to see some serious art today.

Excellent LB, excellent.

I'm having a white truffle off-line dinner tomorrow night, and I hope our wines show as well as yours.

He also graced us with his presence at a spectacular offline in Toronto.

Very nice...how was the 98' Tattinger? We had this in Vegas back in March and I thought it was in a pretty nice place

On this night the Taittinger was drinking better than the Salon IMO.

I'm interested in your opinion on the drinking window. You normally prefer Champagne with more age than I do. I bought six bottles of this and tried one earlier this year, feeling it needs time.

Tonight with grilled prime NY Strips, we had a 1993 Mondavi Reserve Cabernste Sauvignon. It could be mistaken for a Bordeaux. Excellent and austere more than rich.


Just one more sip.
