Details are sparse and the links lead to different vintages, mostly older vintages. It makes it difficult to determine if the release is a re-release or a new vintage.

Hi lakeshow. An alternative source might be my webpage where the information for products includes information such as if the product is a new vintage or a re-purchase. Take for example p.42 from the Vintages Catalogue and the note for 2007 Pillar Box Red and then check out : http://www.freewebs.com/winething685941/
Click on any blue font to access more detailed information (it may take around 30-45 seconds to download the MS-Word document with pictures).
Hope this helps. CHEERS

I think you are referring to the fact that many listings don't even mention the producer (like Cab Sauv 2006, Cab Sauv 2007, Pinot Noir 2008, Petit Sirah (sp?) 2007, etc.) ...probably an oversight
If anyone is looking to pick up the Puydeval, there's something fishy going on with it. The website review says it's predominantly Cab Franc, but what was on the shelf was a Cab, Syrah, Merlot. Not the same. CT shows two different blends, so check before buying.

Edit: it appears I may have mistook Cabernet to mean Cab Sauv. It just says Cabernet so I suppose that could be interpreted as Cab Franc as well.

anyone know anything about the Baron-Fuente Grand Millesime Brut Champagne 2003? listed at $47.95?


I purchased some of th 1996 ($54.95) late last year - December 5th release - and it was excellent with a lot of mature champers character. Not that you'll get that in the '03 but I'm grabbing one to try.

Have been drinking the 2006 Geografico Pulleraia over the past couple hours and don't think it's worth the $30 or the WS93. It's nice, but I think it's more a $20 daily drinker in the 89-90 point range at best.


I have to agree. I just kept thinking it would come around. Very one dimensional, pleasant $15-20 bottle. IMHO

Has anyone tried the Pesquera Reserva 2006?

Have had lots of experience with the Crianza, but none with the Reserva and I just snagged four bottles.


I opened one a few weeks ago, and scored it 91 pts. It's silky smooth, and drinking well, although there is also structure for ageing. It's not as good as the 2004 vintage, but still a solid buy at just over $40, IMO.
KSC, I just opened a bottle of the 1994 Pesquera crianza tonight, and it reminded me of this thread...the wine was fantastic! A bit of a surprise for me given that the crianza is their entry-level wine, but it convinced me that these wines can age beautifully. That being said, the 2006 vintage was of course not as good as 1994...
