Wine Suggestions From Bob Shannon

April 7, 2009

Bob Shannon in Albuquerque, New Mexico recently sent a couple of  wine suggestions along to share. Bob is pretty tuned into wine and as a consumer lives at the outer edge of chasing his passion.  We should all be so lucky.

Here are two recent comments from Bob.

  • A suggestion is Chateau Cantermerle 1982. Yes that old and still in the market place for around $60. But be advised if this wine has been stored properly and then aired for 1.5 hours it beat out the $500 wine from the same vintage year.
  • There is still a little of Drouhin Macon Villages 2005 in the market. Had this wine at dinner with friends in Taos and with 2 1/2 hours of opening and three game dishes and a pasta dish it held up for all of these and kept getting better. Best of all the restaurant price was $25/ bottle 750ml. Not a cookie cutter just a knock out for the price.

Thanks for sharing, if you have a recent wine experience that you would like to share, please send it along.
