I haven't tasted any 2012 BdM yet, so yes those bottles of Barbi and Frescobaldi will be my testers. That said, I've always found those 2 to be consistently excellent wines. Even though I bought these I still doubt I will buy many 12's. Certainly not the ones which need age and/or have become pricey (Fuligni, Ciacci, Il Poggione, etc...).

And speaking of consistent, yes the Dido is an excellent wine. The 2015 didn't disappoint.

A few things from the Classics release this morning:

3 x 2004 Castello di Ama Chianti Classico Riserva
4 x 2013 Terrazze dell'Etna Etna Carusu

I don't know this Etna but at $25 CDN it's not much of a risk.

Missed out on the Rousseau. Too slow.

I looked at the East Block offer but it was pricey to start with, and then there was shipping to NY at $50 for 3 bottles. It worked out to $192 USD/bottle. Factor in CDN exchange and that was a deal breaker for me.

For reference, that was the '08 and I think we drank it in April 2016. And it was far from tiring.

Always fascinated by the differing palates. If you're referring to the Turley PS, im of the opinion that it's far superior to their Zins. Or had been in my experience. I haven't bought Larry's wines in the last 3-4 vintages.

We all know it had absolutely nothing to do with me or Yellowtail. I didnt put the poll up nor did I have anything to do with it being put up. It was put up by another forumite to prove a point. That point being the majority of the people on this forum would not share a glass with you under any circumstance even if that was a glass of '59 La Tache.

And for the record I was winning when the thread was taken down anyway
