WinePost tips

Here are a few tips on how to make a compelling, Top 10 WinePost.
Being personal is the best way to start. Let's say you need to get across the simplicity of your box wine. Well, don't break out the French or Italian, bub!
Next, share a photo, or a video. It let's everyone see a more personal style.
That's all there is to it. Oh, remember you may only add up to 25 wines for each WinePost.

The Leoville Tasting


This was a tasting the the three properties that were separated at the turn of the century into Leoville Las Cases, Leoville Barton and Leoville Poyferre.  The tasting was blind and done by vintage.  Vintages tasted included 2000, 1996, 1990 and 1982.

First, let me say, these some delicious wines but that they take time to ripen.  The Poyferre is the most forward, the Barton is beautiful, but the Las Cases has a creay richness that seems to combine the best of both.

These are wonderful wines and are drinking best in 1982 now, although they have not peaked yet.

The 1990, but to be fair, the others are way too young. It was interesting because this 1990 Barton was far more approachable than one I opened from my cellar.

This tasting sounds amazing! What was your second favorite vintage after 1982?
