How was this drinking? One of the bottles I'm bringing to a wine group dinner next month.


It was drinking beautifully. Medium body, Nice and round tannins, balanced. However, my friend who opened 05 Le Bon the night before prefers the 05 than the 98.


Thanks for the report. I'm bringing this and a 2000 Clerc Milon.

During our weekend in Austin

2011 A Lageder Muller Thurgau
NV Diebold Vallois Brut Champagne

On the Champagne, the wine list said Blanc de Blancs, but the bottle was not the BdB when it came out. I didn't notice it till we had both finished a glass, do you say something or not at this point?

Presumably they brought the bottle to the table and presented it to you before opening? That was your chance to say something. Smack

Right, they brought the completely wrong bottle at first and I noticed that, but when they brought the second bottle and it said Diebold Vallois I accepted it. I didn't look carefully to make sure it said Blanc de Blancs, and I'm not familiar with the color differentials on the label between the Brut and the Blanc de Blancs. Only after Googling the wine for information did I notice we didn't receive what was listed.

Yes, same here. When someone ask me which wine in this world I'd like to try, they always get the same answer. DRC Montrachet.

Opened it last night, and vacumn corked it. Great the 2nd night with good amount of fruit, moderate finish. The tannins are somewhat pronounced at the end. I think its in a good state right now but of course waiting never hurts especially when there are more bottles in ones cellar Wink

If there was any way you could mule some of this back, I would be very interested.


+2, a wonderful wine! Still recall that one at Paese. mmmm, and thanks.


Me, too! Terrific bottle. That was a good night!

Sounds like we need to have another Italian dinner!

Love to hear mareff's opinion. I've had it twice from 375 in the past year and it's either a hold or decant for hours even in this format to my tastes. I won't open another for a few years.
