A 2007 Patagonian Malbec with our homemade burgers. Chef Earl's BBQ sauce really picked it up. (Available at St Pauls Farmers' market.)

Re: The Wine Thread

So - potato gnocchi with provolone and mushrooms. (And a touch of Manitoba's favorite vegetable - BACON).

My Italian friends might disown me, but mushrooms = Borgogne.

Re: The Wine Thread

I've done quite a few courses in wines and spirits (WSET, CSW, CSS) and certified through US Sommelier Association. They can be hard if one is not in the industry and tasting daily. (Especially WSET)...

Re: The Wine Thread

Re: The Wine Thread

The Pauilac was the last of an odd bin and I paid $160 - the invoice showing $120 discount.
I don't know the Barsac.

Re: The Wine Thread

I'm a sucker for white CdP - can't say I've tried a 20yr old though.
Tonight a simple Zinck Alsatian Gewurtz - we're having curry !

The best wine for curry is beer.
Gewurtz might work - except...

Re: The Wine Thread

I have a hard time justifying a grand cru Cote de Nuits, so wondered about the Malconsorts as a decent premier cru.

Re: The Wine Thread

Ah Moses! A kindred spirit! I challenged our local wine boutique to find a good Malbec from Mendoza. Turns out I'm a hard lad to please!
