How was the '86 Mouton? Have they started to mature yet or are they still tight as a drum? I've been sitting on mine since release and waiting to pop a couple.


Dok, sorry for the late response but have been slammed at work. No longer tight as a drum on the nose but the palate still has ways to go.


I bought a case of this on futures and have opened two bottles so far and been disappointed.

Frown Sorry to hear that JC. It stopped working resulting in heat damage?


Exactamundo - big f'ing disaster. Frown


I am very sorry to hear that! Was it old? I'm considering a large one for our new home, along with a generator for backup. That could be a real disaster. Is there insurance available for a loss like that?

Slightly over 2 years.

Our wine is insured, the adjusters came yesterday. We will see if and what they pay out. .

Sorry to hear that.

How hot do you think your bottles got, and for how long?


85 degrees -for how long? Not sure - a day perhaps? We suspect that the temperature has been fluctuating more than we were aware for the last couple weeks though

WS gave this an (88) under Top-Values. I was at the grocery store, and thought I'd see for myself. This is actually a pretty decent quaffer. Medium bodied, nice oak treatment. A bargain at $8.

Bogle is usually a safe value wine. A friend brought a bottle of the Phantom in honor of Halloween, to our girls weekend retreat and it was quite enjoyable.

I think it was hot for a couple weeks. There was a lot of damage and seeping. I mean weeping. Well, weeping over the seeping...

This is very sad to hear. You must have lost more than a few bottles that held a special importance to you. Hope at least that your insurance company deals fairly with you, and that a lot of it is replaceable without too much hassle.

Can finally taste again.

With sushi:

2002 R&L Legras Presidence. Good.

NV Krug. Very good.

A found bottle; 1996 Henriot des Enchanteleurs. Friggin' wonderful. Best bottle ever of this bubbly. And definitely my last one. I actually thought I was out of this after the last bottle. Score!!

We will see how the insurance situation shakes out. Meanwhile, i am a bit hesitant about auctions... I mean, what is to stop someone in the same situation as us, with competely cooked wine, but with no morals, to sell stuff?

We are likely starting all over putting away stuff to age. (we still have some stuff that were in other locations, but not too many...) This time in eurocaves. With wifi thermometers. And whatever other gadgets I can find, since this has been emotionally draining, to say the least.

Oops... This is FKG on JC's ipad....

2007 Gallo Family Barrelli Vyd Cabernet
2008 Novy Rosella's Vyd Syrah
2006 Donna Olimpia 1898 Tageto


All were drinking very well with the Novy probably WOTN. The Gallo might be a little beyond its peak (not quite as good as bottle I opened 2 years ago). The Donna Olimpia did a nice imitation of a lower end Bordeaux. All were very good QPRs -- paid less than $30 for all of them -- with the Olimpia being a great QPR at the $20 I paid. I think I have one or two of those left, and interested in seeing how they develop.
