What does it mean for a wine to be “vintage correct” in taste? via /r/wine

What does it mean for a wine to be “vintage correct” in taste?

I’ve heard of the term varietally correct which makes sense to me. But vintage correct? I mean, if a year in a particular AVA was known as a bad year or a difficult year, wouldn’t it be desirable to be vintage incorrect? Thank you for your insight from this wine newbie!

Old Beaujolais at Bern’s via /r/wine

Old Beaujolais at Bern’s

Planning to have dinner at Bern’s in Tampa in a few weeks, excited to have some well-cellared wines. They have lots of old Beaujolais on their list — has anyone had good luck with Bojo over ten or twenty years old?

I want to get something with age from the list but many of the bottles over ten years old under $100 seem like they’re well over the hill. Are they on the list for curiosity’s sake?

wine cellar via /r/wine

wine cellar

looking for some ideas and information for my wine cellar I'm building. it's 5.2m x 4.8m x 2.4m high it has a double brick cavity wall. it has a set of stairs that come down into the cellar from the main house and a door that leads into a smaller dwelling. walls will be lined with a 16mm fire grade plasterboard aswell. possibly looking at a split system aircon unit run on solar to cool if needed. currently holding on average of 1000 bottles. looking at any input for info and ideas for the style/design. organizing. functionality. stock, efficiency etc

Laurent Perrier LP vs LA via /r/wine

Laurent Perrier LP vs LA

So i ended up getting a good amount of champagne the other day, and my haul included Laurent Perrier's LP Brut and LA Cuvee. From what I can gather the LA is just their new release, but it was probably my least favorite champagne that I have tasted. The LP however, was probably my favorite out of the haul, which had a lot of nicer bottles as well.

Is there a reason for my perceived drastic tasting differences between the two? Or is it more of a personal thing?

Wine recommendations for my wife via /r/wine

Wine recommendations for my wife

I dont know much about wine but I am an avid beer enthusiast. Im looking for suggestions for Christmas. I know she enjoys menage au trois red wine and 7 Moons red blend. Is there anything along those lines you suggest? I have a Total Wine close enough that I shouldnt have a hard time finding anything. Thanks
