A French Wine Saturday Night

Bonsoir, mes amis! Welcome to a Saturday Night French Wine thread. The French have guided mankind in cuisine and viticulture for centuries. California, Chile, Australia and other regions have come on strong and produce amazing wines for sure. However, the French are the masters.

Go to the below linked page for the very informative interactive map, it is well worth the effort and may be able to guide you into some purchases that will age well. For your information and perusal:

 

Interactive graphic: French wine map shows the best vintage, from 1978 to 2011

Mayfair-based Berry Bros and Rudd, wine merchant to the Queen, has rated the wine from different regions of France out of ten for each year for decades. Browse by year to see the quality of each region’s vintage, and click to see Berry Bros and Rudd’s reviews.

Berry Bros and Rudd also suggest whether you should drink the wine now, or lay it down to mature in your cellar.

The quality of the wine each year depends on a number of factors, but the most important is the weather.

A sunny growing season, with occasional showers – particularly when the vines are in bud – is vital. Too much rain and the fruity “extract” in the wine will be diluted; too much sun and the grapes could be burnt.

Joss Fowler, from Berry Bros and Rudd’s fine wine department, said: “2010 was a brilliant vintage. The wine has lots of acidity and alcohol, lots of extract and lots of tannin – the key ingredients are in a high volume and the perfect balance. It will also improve over time – over the years those ingredients will interplay with each other and the wine will develop, soften and gain complexity.

“Tannins are key – the same as you get in tea – which soften and ‘eat themselves’ over time, and the wine will get lighter. That’s what produces the deposit that you find in the bottom of the bottle – a good sign.”

Top years include 1990, a year in which eight of the nine regions are given full marks, and 2005, when Loire, Alsace and the reds from Burgundy and Bordeaux are each awarded a ten.

Other years are more mixed, while 1984 was a “pretty terrible” vintage in the major European regions – hence its absence from Berry Bros and Rudd’s wine ratings, and the chart above.

Of course, vintage charts are summaries that may hide exceptional wines from poor years – and occasionally the opposite.

Many of the best quality wines can take years to fully mature, and this depends on the characteristics of the region and the different grape varieties. Some Bordeaux reds, for example, might take twenty or thirty years to reach their peak.

Fowler said: “In a brilliant vintage, such as 2010, everything tends to over perform. So you don’t need to spend hundred of pounds on a case: smaller properties will still have made good wine. For example, I’d recommend a 2010 Chateau Batailley from Pauillac, Bord, which sells for £300 a case, before tax. Drink it in ten or twenty years.

“In poorer years, the wine is by no means the same quality – it might lack extract or fruit. But the best, drunk earlier, are still good.

“For example, if you bought the 2007 Batailley, you should drink the bottle now and it would still be delicious, but there would be little point in laying it down.

“As a rule, stick to the more established vineyards in a poor year.”

Many vineyards sell wine en primeur – or while it is still maturing in the barrel – more than a year before the vintage is bottled and officially released.

Keen purchasers make their decisions based on the preliminary scores given during the spring after the grapes have been harvested. The 2011 Bordeaux tastings took place earlier this month.

High scores will prompt higher prices for the developing wine, but buyers should proceed with care – prices may fall again in the future after the wine has had an opportunity to mature.

Last week the leading Bordeaux estate Chateau Latour, owned by billionaire Francois Pinault, announced it would be pulling out of this ‘futures market’, adding that its wines will only be available when bottled and aged.

Previously Chateau Latour wines had proven to be a savvy investment. The 1982 vintage was sold at £250 for a case en primeur in 1983, but by 2007 this was valued at £9,000.

But experts have said that the decision could be good news for wine collectors, as buying already-bottled wine will take some of the uncertainty out of the process.

Map note

Scores are averaged for regions which produce both white and red wines.

    joe knew whats up

    Now the king told the boogie men
    You have to let that raga drop
    The oil down the desert way
    Has been shakin’ to the top
    The Sheik he drove his Cadillac
    He went a’ cruisin’ down the ville
    The muezzin was a’ standing
    On the radiator grille

    [Chorus:]
    The Shareef don’t like it
    Rockin’ the Casbah
    Rock the Casbah
    The Shareef don’t like it
    Rockin’ the Casbah
    Rock the Casbah

    By order of the prophet
    We ban that boogie sound
    Degenerate the faithful
    With that craazy Casbah sound
    But the Bedouin they brought out
    The electric camel drum
    The local guitar picker
    Got his guitar picking thumb
    As soon as the Shareef
    Had cleared the square
    They began to wail

    [Chorus:]

    Now over at the temple
    Oh! They really pack ‘em in
    The in crowd say it’s cool
    To dig this chanting thing
    But as the wind changed direction
    The temple band took five
    The crowd caught a wiff
    Of that crazy Casbah jive

    [Chorus:]

    The king called up his jet fighters
    He said you better earn your pay
    Drop your bombs between the minarets
    Down the Casbah way

    As soon as the Shareef was
    Chauffeured outta there
    The jet pilots tuned to
    The cockpit radio blare

    As soon as the Shareef was
    Outta their hair
    The jet pilots wailed

    [Chorus:]

    He thinks it’s not kosher
    Fundamentally he can’t take it.
    You know he really hates it.

    Speaking of things French, Galliawatch has excellent coverage of the mass demonstrations by French people of all ages against the “Taubira Law” legalizing same sex marriage. These demonstrations have been going on since January and keep getting bigger, even though tear gas and riot police have been unleashed on the conservative demonstrators, including Catholic priests.

    Coverage of this in the US MSM….crickets.

    its a bench penalty, hockey was designed by men, its men’s fault anyway for everything, so, it follows….too many men on the ice because of overbearing paternalistic and patriarchal systems.

    it is never the womans’fault.

    have you never learned that?

    Biden talks gun control with McCain at Ariz. forum

    Vice President Joe Biden joined Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at a forum hosted by the McCain Institute in Arizona Friday, where the pair discussed the recently defeated gun-control measure.

    Biden told the crowd that last year’s massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., has changed American attitudes about guns, even though the Senate rejected legislation to expand background checks on gun purchases.

    “Newtown was, to sort of use that old cliche, the straw that that broke the camel’s back,” Biden said, according to the Arizona Republic. “There was a fundamental change, in my opinion, in public attitudes about guns. It wasn’t marginal — it was real.”

    Biden joined the Arizona senator for the McCain Institute’s Sedona Forum, the second annual gathering the think tank has hosted in Sedona, Ariz., since its creation last year.

    McCain and Biden are friends from the Senate, and Biden’s lobbying has been partially credited with convincing McCain to cross party lines and back the Senate’s bill.

    Um, no, the Taubira Law is being promoted in the French National Assembly, not the EU Parliament in Brussels. And yes, a lot of French people especially in the rural areas are still Catholic.

    From Galliawatch:

    It’s interesting how everyone feels that this time the protesters will pursue their goal until they have achieved what they want. I think it’s because for once we have a massive protest movement composed primarily of conservative people with moral and religious principles, a sense of pride in their great heritage and above all an awareness of the dangers hovering over France, not merely gay marriage, but the entire Socialist agenda. Usually the protesters in the street are the Socialists themselves demanding more gifts and creating mayhem. This time they are largely Catholics demanding justice for the primary human institution: the family. The winds have changed completely.

    my dad has a pirate flag, its crossed bones on a skulled snowman, with seven hearts about the design.

    it flies on a lake in NW PA. the 7 are the grand kids.

    i drew the skull, obviously…the snowman is because of the lake effect snow, the cross bones are for bbq, and the hearts are for the grandkids

    If you can get to Houston, we CAN make it work. If all else fails, I will make sure someone (most likely me or a cabbie buddy) picks you up at the airport and will make sure you have a place to lay your head. Lived in Houston for over 20 years, doubt if I’d even have to call in a favor to make it happen. Can’t do it for everyone, but can for a few, if needed.

    Patient to Nurse Ratios was somewhat new when I left California.

    There was some controversy that the ratios must be maintained when a nurse went on lunch break, to CT, transfering, etc. another nurse needed to be brought in. So, basically, you had a nurse with no patient load all shift just relieving others for lunch and whatnots.

    The most disappointing cuisine in the US is Chinese. I’ve never had food in a Chinese restaraunt in the US that was remotely like what I ate in China. I’m not sure why that is, but there you have it.

    @ BatGuano:
    A couple of years ago there was a small group of people who were baiting Possum and he had had enough of it. He decided to give them exactly what they wanted, and then he left.

    Old news.

    @ BatGuano:

    I think it’s a conspiracy. Chinese immagrants to the US must have to sign an aggreement to not cook actual Chinese food.

    I ate some amazingly tasty stuff in China, including some that would strip the paint off a car. Now mind you, they can also serve up stuff that would gag a maggot, but then the Chinese have pretty much always eaten every single part of anything that couldn’t get away fast enough. I don’t care if the steamed cicada larva taste like the food of the gods, I don’t want any. And forget the pig face (which is exactly what it sounds like.)

    I know about P@ Bunk X:
    I remember Possum (whom I liked)expressing hostility to the Irgun who blew up the King David Hotel and apparently killed a relative of his. I understood his attitude but disagreed with his overall assessment of zionism (If I remember correctly).
    I don’t know anything about the Jewish Mafia here.

    By the way, when I was young, in Texas, I would put firecrackers in the abdomen of cicadas, light the fuse and send them on their way.They would not get far. I’m not proud of it but I would not eat their larvae.

    This was refuted by Eliana, with facts furnished. Possum later backed down on his allegation. This is one of the biggest strikes Possum had against him with Jewish Blogmockers. Another strike was implying that he was comfortable with the neonazi site Stormfront’s view of Jews. And there was more.

    @ BatGuano:
    The wing of the King David Hotel that was blown up was being used purely for the British military. They were also warned it was going to be bombed, but defied the warnings.

    Beyond that, I would say Possum seemed like a continuation over here of Iceweasel and Jimmah, needling the Jews at every opportunity. We had those two stuck up our ass at The Swamp and thought we were getting away from that with the new blog. But instead we get another nasty, Jew-baiting Brit of our own. So, yes, there were pressures against Possum from the Jewish folks here, but the guy was deliberately treading on their sensitivities for his own perverse pleasure. He was, in effect, a troll specifically aiming at the Jews here.

    and warning or not, the bombing of the king david hotel is an act of terrorism by definition.

    @ 279 coldwarrior: Tolerance. We fling terms like bigot and racist etc around too easily. When we are all just a bunch of people that see through the glass darkly. Part of the key of having one’s beliefs questioned is that it either makes the person stronger and transforms the world around a bit more or it reveals an error in thinking or emoting. The person then has to decide how valid their memory is versus the new reality.

    Sort of like becoming illuminated about Romney.

    There are no awful posters on this blog. It’s a niche blog of people with similar opinions that are able to write and joke about them.

    We are personally upset about Russians, Serbs, Jews with a lower case j? Not functional. Those are discussions that should evolve and not become a personal goad and get a rise out of match up. Reserve that for LGF.

    Some of us are more local bent on our world observations and some of us are world wide bent on the same. Both have their place.

    What makes a real problem on a blog is someone starting to grind an axe on another person and not being able to start anew on a new post. let it go. Domestic Violence works a lot like that.

    Both Rodan and Cold Warrior are able to carry opinions wisely and deal with disagreement. The real meat of the blog is the people who provide posts. And put themselves out there. They will benefit the most from the arguments if their character bears the inspection.

    People like me who are drive by posting gadflys learn passively and slowly. I think Calo and I argued once. Mostly my fault for personalizing a discussion and not being a budger.

    mea culpas. “I was drunk”, “I posted because I as angry”, “I am irritated with bad health”, “A love one is having issues”. All of those will darken the posting glass a bit so we don’t see the real person

    There are enough pro Jewish posters on this blog to hold their own against intentional and unintentional antisemitism. Israel is currently a number one ally for us. It will be that way for the foreseeable future. Get on board with a good ally. Make them the cornerstone of good faith in the Middle East in our directions.

    @ 274 coldwarrior: Gonna beat the dead thread horse here this am. lol

    Point of order CW, Rodan, et all at the blog lead are huge supporters of Israel. To get panties in a twist about minor discussion points does require a step back and evaluation.

    I live in the Pacific Northwest. There is a larger noise than ever about the news making it difficult to discern facts from rumor. I have a hard enough time keeping up with countries changing names. It is hard to up to speed on fast changing issues and be balanced with historical facts. Speranza contributions to history here are wise ones. Heysoos and Dorians and Huckfunns musical interludes are all wise. That is balance. Touchy issue, Learn, relax, repeat.

    I will never see or view Israel like the Wrath of G-D did. He might think me anti-israel for how I carry myself, but I would watch his Israeli vids. I did look at his mentors and broaden my mind a bit about where he came from. But he was also an ax grinder. There is a time to step on the clutch and shift gears.

    The stuff between CW and I was a misunderstanding. I’ve been wound kind of tightly these days due to personal stuff, so when CW bumped the OOT I got humpy and it escalated from there. We ironed it out over the phone this afternoon.

    As for the other topic that came up -- antisemitism -- the episode in question happened a couple of years ago and was resolved a couple of years ago. Possum was the victim of an unwarranted witch hunt by a small group here, so he fired all guns as he walked out the door. Yeah, it was ugly.
