What a small world that you work with someone from my southern past. Sounds like you had an interesting adventure of which I'm jealous. Hope to see you both up at the winery at some point.

Exceptional advise! I'm envious that you wer eable to attend a wine auction. How on earth does one find out about these sorts of things? Best! -S


Great notes about the tasting! As someone who was there, I almost completely agree with them (especially about the DRC and the '49 Gruaud-Larose!) However, I think I must have gotten to the Brunello too late as I found it rather disappointing and I usually really like Brunellos.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Carolyn, your lot of Comte Georges de Vogüé stands to be the best Burgundy you've ever had. I look forward to the day when I get to taste wine of that stature. John


Thank you for that, John! No buyers remorse this morning -- it turns out I purchased Lot 13, not Lot 12 so I got a bit more for my buck than I thought during the auction. I also had a fabulous lunch with one of the other bidders afterwards who offered to purchase part of my lot if I did have any remorse.

But I DID learn some valuable lessons and had a great time doing it. Can't wait for the next one!
