Steve L.

Thanks for the insight concerning "rented" vineyards and rolling casks. (Hmm--I wonder, which wines did B. select?)


Thanks Steve;
B. bought 6 Pommard 1er Cru 2006, 6 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru and a magnum (the last one !) of Ruchotte-Chambertin 2006. We tasted them last year in the casks and she wanted to have them in the cellar.


Hi Bert,

I was in a hurry but was 'out of the hurry' as soon as i started reading about Pacalet. I have a few bottles of some Sabres he made (only 3 :-( ) bit out of my scope budgetwise but i sometimes have the pleasure (or delight) to taste his wines. Nice story and thanks for the last tip, i may visit France beginning of next year and hope to visit Bourgogne (and some of my favorite Beaujolais producers, btw they seem to tame their wines down a bit don't they? Except Metras maybe)
Anyway you probably know of the existence of this but just mention it, you might be able to sneak in a visit next year. I thought it was rather enjoyable, it is difficult to find good (natural or whatever it is called nowadays) wines in Italy http://www.vinidivignaioli.com/

I have in my posession two bottles left to me by my brotherinlaw after he unfortunately passed away.
Both are labeled Michel Couvreur and one is a Pommard Premier Cru Epenots 1980 and the other is a Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Chateau Rayas. I know little about wine but hold onto because of their sentimental value. What can you tell me about them and is time they were poured?
