Yes, they were all from the same case. The best bottle validated the ebobs of the world, and the rest were just, "meh". Not corked or madeirized, just not what I was expecting from a Margaux region in terms of style and finesse.

I've got a 1990 Yquem slated for consumption, but I usually don't stand up Sauternes nearly as long. I've never had problems with sediment in Sauternes, and I rarely decant them.

Must be a special occassion. Enjoy

We're gonna' make it one! Smile The Barolo will be for a different occasion, but the Guigal will be accompanied by some of my other favorite Rhone-varietals from around the world (definitely to include SQN). I just didn't list them because I'm not standing them up nearly as long.

Just stood up a 1988 Leoville Las Cases yesterday. Very excited to try this one, and I'll find a nice day in September to have it with my wife.


Just had this a few weeks ago and you're in for a treat. Just beginning to enter its drinking window IMO.
At the moment

1996 Cheval Blanc
1985 Taylor Fladgate Port
1995 Château Beau-Séjour Bécot
1997 Fattoria Le Pupille Scansano
1998 Bosquet des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Grenache

Never heard of it. Do they still make it?
I have a 1991 Clos du Val Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon standing right now.

Also, I have a 1949 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo standing as well, but I need advice from anyone here with experience with old Barolos of this nature. Would you guys pop and pour this wine letting it make whatever transformation it may make, good or bad? Or, would you slow-o it in the afternoon to be served that evening?
I'd pop and pour, max. Maybe decant for sediment. I'd want to tast this wine as soon as it hit air to check it out.

I really want to see tasting notes on this!
I've had both the '94 and '97 Graham this year, both in 375 ml. I thought the '97 was more forward, certainly softer, but both were great wines.

I'm not talking you out of it. You already know it will improve for a long time still, but unless you have only one bottle, it's kind of a treat to experience the sheer intensity of a young Port-- sometimes it almost hurts the palate.
Some 10 year cheddar just came into our market, and after tasting it I thought it craved port.

Our first cold front is rolling in this weekend, and I love to celebrate the cooler weather with a nice port and cigar (not necessarily together).

Does it even need to be stood? Wink

Happy Birthday to your bride, Marcb7.

Our anniversary was last week, but my wife was still in London, thus celebrating yesterday and today.

Our dating anniversary is later this month, so a lot of celebrating this month. Cool
Hope yours shows well K! I see '90 Guigal listed online for quite a bit less than the $105 I paid locally, or rather traded straight across for a '90 La Lagune I'd bought. Wink
