RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to easily distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes inventory changes to a wide number of people. Think of it as a one-stop shop for all the stuff you want to read online. For the consumer, an aggregator or reader, either web-based or installed on your computer, ties it all together.

To make use of this information, you have to download and install an RSS feed reader like SharpReader. Every so often, the aggregator checks the RSS feeds you selected.

1996 Taittinger - Comtes de Champagne
Very well balanced. Hints of rose pedal, citrus, lime, many complex things.

1964 Haut-Brion
just beautiful, perfect nose, declined after 45 minutes but until then it was well worth the wait of 48 years. drink up

1990 Krug - Brut Vintage
Full bodied, rich and toasty. It had aromas of dried apricot, smoke, orange, some minerals and a hint of toffee. This champagne is well balanced and smooth. It is deliciously elegant for its denseness. I personally prefer the 1988 of the three back to back years (88,89,90), but this is almost too close to call. Seems like this one could go for another 15 years.

1982 Gruaud Larose
Excellent balance and beautiful finesse. Such great aromas of plum and leather, along with delicate earth tones. The fruit structure is amazing and is holding up so nicely. It has a long finish with soft tannins and lively fruit with a wonderful purity about it. I highly recommend this gem of a bordeaux!!
