aside from re-adjusting to the sticker shock (Lavantureux for the Paris Dauvissat price, $60 for NV champagne? Ok, Grand Cru, but... Ok, I know, this price winging gets old, I just had to vent) there are definitely some nice beauties to return to..
Well, all I can say is that our prices here in Michigan make people in the rest of the US cringe; I can only imagine what Europeans must think, while shaking their heads...
Homer Simpson: Stupid Euro!
(Euro $, that is...)
And the "Les Perruches" on the Mathur, a vineyard of his, in reference to the soil? I guess there's no limiting the use of such names, as Foreau across the river has a vineyard named "Les Perruches" - which I assume is also in reference to the soil, but one wouldn't want to get confused..
Cant say; maybe someone can chime in here and clarify?
Interesting that a light Sancerre rouge was made in O3, sounds interesting..
Well, it's certainly light compared to the Chevillon, not to mention most Pinot Noir in our experience. Even the Thivin and Foillard were more substantial wines, not that that's a bad thing...
Thanks for the comments, Rahsaan, I appreciate them!
