Lately:

2013 Soliste-Nouveau Monde Pinot

2013 Baer Ursa

2013 Peter Michael Clos du Ciel Pinot

2015 Wayfarer Chard

2015 Walter Hansel-Cahill Lane Chard

We do drink a lot of the same wines.  I have all of those, except for the Baer in my cellar too. 

The Baer was a gift but the others are regulars. 

My first time here. I’m 73 and used to be quite knowledgeable... in another life. Had to give up too many things... bad GI. Here is my issue: I’ve given up TOO much! Lol I want to enjoy wine again but must be gentle on myself. The BEST bottle of white I have ever had was a KISTLER CHARD back in the early 80’s. This was unusual as I don’t really care for chards! Prefer less cloying fresher tastes like Pinot Grigio. So, for an average night, with tummy in mind (NO ST. GENIVIEVE!!!) what would you folks recommend? I read about Santa Margarita but wondering about the Alsace wines. And WHICH Alsace wines? ANY guidance is appreciated! RMH

Thanks for your generosity, Board-O.  As noted to you, the reds here have aged alot better than we have.  Both the 1959 and the 1970 Latour had wonderful fruit and tannins. They were alive and silky smooth.  It will be hard to return to the everyday drinkers.

And, the prime rib that you made was succulent and flavorful, and a great match for the wines.

2005 Chateau de Chorey, Chorey-les-Beaune, Vieilles Vignes

Where'd you source this, and how was it, Steve? I've gone through quite a few 2002 and 2009 regular Chorey-les-Beaune bottling, but I've never tried the VV.

It was very good but nothing to write home about. I prefer the Les Cras VV from the same vintage. IIRC, I bought them from the SAQ on release. Maybe a Courier Vinicole order.

👍🏼 In the first draft of my post above I had another sentence at the end: "The regular bottlings are very enjoyable - clean, pure and fresh - but not exactly earth-shattering." They made for a perfectly fine Tuesday wine.

The best thing about the regular bottling was the price: $16 USD.
