"[The senior partner] sipped [the French wine grower's Burgundy], rolled it round his tongued and swallowed it while the French principal sat complacently waiting for the expected praise. "Urine," he said. ...whereupon the Frenchman leapt to his feet, threw down his napkin and stormed out of the room. "Where has he gone," asked the senior partner? "Well, Sir, ... you did describe his Burgundy as er...urine."  "Fussy old gentleman isn't he? Pass the potatoes," said the senior partner.

--Douglas Sutherland in "Raise your glasses," a true story

 

This is another one of the tastings that we have been conducting here for pure scientific research.  We are here to tell you our “Wine Drinking People” the state of the 1996 vintage from the world’s most famous wine region for Pinot Noir.  These wines are all from a single collector who has over 6000 bottles in his cellar, I always say this is the most valuable service we offer at the Wine Watch.  If you have more wine than you can drink in your lifetime, we are willing to help you!  Wine Watch will help to ensure that you leave as few bottles behind when you leave this earth as possible!!

We also have an incredible collection of wines from the highly touted 1996 vintage from Burgundy in the store right now including one of the most collectible wines two of the grand cru monopoles of the Domaine de la Romanee Conti Romanee Conti and Domaine de la Romanee Conti La Tache.  I have also included all the 1996 vintage wines that we have in the store for those of you that were born in 1996- it was a very good year- you should have a few bottles in your cellar!!

Toni Lampasone will be making a special menu to compliment the tasting wines and there are only 14 spaces available for this event.  The fee is $295 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or email andy@winewatch.com.
