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. You log on to the aggregator and see the updates to your favorite sites, blogs and stores, all in one place. For more information on RSS, please visit:

1998 Courcel - Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru
Big disappointment. Tasted twice w/similar performance from a good source. Weak, thin and uninteresting.

(Tasted Jul 7, 2009)

1996 Cos d'Estournel
Excellent. Young. Classic bordeaux, just entering a long drinking window. Black fruit, cigar box.

2005 Louis Jadot - Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St Jacques 1er Cru
Was either never accessible or went into lockdown for a long snooze. Intense, medicinal, slightly bitter. Long, persistent finish, though. Elements for a great bottle are there, but I won't peak for 5 years+. Educational exercise and a good lesson regarding young Jadot wines.

1998 Bruno Giacosa - Barbaresco Riserva Santo Stefano (Red Label)
Perfectly balanced wine. Medium-bodied in the best way. Round, warm and enveloping aromas of red fruits and toasted nuts. Tannins are there but are buried by the fruit. No crime to drink now but its peak is probably 3-5 years out.

(Tasted Jul 7, 2009)

2002 Jean Boillot et Fils - Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchere 1er Cru
Really electrifying white burgundy. Fruit, vanillin, oak char all lit up by the wine's acidity. A lot of everything, but everything is in balance. Quite a wine.

(Tasted Jul 7, 2009)
