behdadjoon The haut brion was better 2w
  •   jeremygiesbrecht Wow! Still alive and kicking though? 2w
  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht sure. 78 is under rated. Mouton was old but nice. HB was very good. Latour is robust still. Pichon comtesse and beychevelle or Palmer and the like are hit or miss with more bottle variance in my experience but largely nice. 1w

behdadjoon Unicorn wine. First vintage of Palmer Blanc. 1000 bottles made for the family and for guests of the Chateau. And it is amazing! 2mon
  •   jeremygiesbrecht Wow... Blend or all sauv Blanc? 2mon
  •   karlkahn It's tasty! 2mon
  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht blend. Ancient varietals from the 18th century used by Palmer. They make a red from the ancient blends as well. Amazing but totally different. Much lighter. 2mon

behdadjoon So yeah, Thomas just served this blind for lunch at Chateau Palmer today. 2mon
  •   jeremygiesbrecht Very cool wine... Maybe not what you would expect at Chateau Palmer though?! 2mon
  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht Thomas is not your typical Bordeaux winemaker. He is half Italian. He worked at Ornellaia. And he knows his wine, from all over 2mon
  •   jeremygiesbrecht Very cool! Awesome experience to be there... I love Palmer even though I don't have much of it. Enjoy your trip and keep the posts coming. 2mon

  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht almost too much really. Unlike any other 88 I have tried, even Petrus 4mon
  •   jeremygiesbrecht I was privileged to try the 83 a couple months ago and it was depth and complexity but very graceful... The 83 Lafite we had with it on the other hand was huge. I don't get to try much first growth so it's interesting to see the differences. Cheers! 4mon
  •   kimoteam 4mon
  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht is an underrated year next to the epic 82. Cool that you got to try them next to each other. That sort of thing too often makes one spoiled. You are not the only one who does not get to do it so often. But if you ever have the urge you are always welcome to stop by mine! 4mon
  •   jeremygiesbrecht Thanks @behdadjoon ! I might be out your way this fall actually; we are hoping to spend 3-5 weeks in Europe. Getting to try those two wines was one of the highlights of my wine drinking memories... I had a very generous friend who traded me for them (at a VERY reasonable value) and I shared them with a group of fellow wine lovers in Montreal. A special evening for sure! 4mon
  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht keep me posted and send me your private details. Mine are my username at yahoo dot com 4mon
