I am going to have to disagree with your assessment of the Haut Brion. I just had that wine a few weeks ago and it was absolutely beautiful. Granted it has been a few years. It was layered and elegant. The complexity of the wine was what I thought was so astounding. Perhaps the reason it didnt show well was that it was over decanted. I personally believe that we over decant Bordeaux. Sometimes it is necessary with certain Chateau in a really young vintage, but I believe that with an hour to two of air, most wines are peaking. I think that too much air loses the fruit of the wine, and can reduce the richness of a great bottle. I love your show, I think its very interesting resource. Most of the time I tend to agree with you, but I just thought I would throw in my 2 cents. It was a bit heartbreaking to watch you dump out such amazing wine into the bucket. : )

Nice episode Gary, noticed you pointed out that alot of folks are requesting episodes you have already done. what a shame. Well I have 1 you havent done, and have never even mentioned. In fact I've never heard of anyone do a blog on this wine. Although any material I find on this wine has always given it nothing but praise, sometimes astronomical accolades. So Gary my question for YOU is, WHEN WILL YOU BE DOING AN EPISODE ON VIN JAUNES?

Ok, ok...I am delurking. Currently going through every single episode, in chronological order. Hope to be caught up in a couple months. On the Bordeaux front...I'm still kicking myself for not purchasing a second bottle when I bought a '90 Leoville Barton for my former boss ten years ago. I know... second growth, not first... but you get the point. Hoping to make a journey to the Wine Library soon.

You said the Margaux was perfect and scored it a 96. What could it possibly take to get a 98-99-100? Actually I think 96 is the highest score i've seen in any WLTV episode.
