  1. Uh, less rubber than usual for more money?

    Perhaps you have an uplifting wine story to post today, Jason.

    Cava (dreadful stuff), Morocco, AOC refusés . . . Ay-yi-yi!

      I have NO idea what you mean.

      And there are dreadful wines in Roussillon, in Burgundy, and in Bordeaux . . . as there are in EVERY wine-producing region the world over. But I have had more EXCELLENT bottles of Cava in the past, say, decade than I have had in the previous 30. To dismiss all Cava with the words "dreadful stuff" is not only unfair and incorrect, but leads one to inevitably to wonder about closed minds . . . .

        OK. You look for the good ones. I have tasted one or two supposedly superior ones.

        If I want cheaper bubbly, I'll drink Cremant from a dependable producer, probably with a touch of cassis, blackberry or passion fruit liqueur.

        Sorry, maybe if you had posted that some other vintner was launching this project I would have responded more favorably, but Only Torres' Cabernet and Gran Sangre de Toro have ever impressed me. I read "premium" as an indicator of price, not quality.

          Is that because you don't like the taste of the Crémant by itself? Just curious . . .

            No, it because I don't like to waste good Champagne on Kir Royales.
