I like wine which apart from beer is the only alcohol I drink.

The ones mentioned in this poll are a kind of the average ones and for a large part French, whereas in Dutchland people are more looking for others than the usual French ones.

Lately also because of the lovely weather I would go for an Italian or Spanish or Australian or Chilian wine.

A Pinot Noir is in my experience an excellent wine.

However, because of an awesome experience this week with a Chardonnay that is my poll choice

Then maybe this one:



“Come quickly, I am tasting stars,” Dom Perignon’s famous quote after his first taste of Champagne, and a fairly apt description of what a good Champagne experience should offer. Is Champagne truly a wine? Where do the bubbles come from? How do I serve Champagne? Any Champagne suggestions?

Awesome experience! So, which would be your all-time favourite?

O.K., you can vote and maybe post a comment when you get old enough, in that case.

Oh in wine I don't have one and I wonder if many people have one. There is too much to choose from and it also depends on the time of year. I prefer variation.

I have. I may come off as a snob, but I think Chateau Lafitte Rothschild is the Mount Everest of wines. I don't know which vintage is considered best, though.

I believe for the price of one bottle of Chateau Lafitte Rothschild I buy wines for over 2 years before i reach that price.

Average price is 10 000 pounds. (UK is the biggest importer of wine) I don't know which vintage (year) is considered the best.

I wonder what makes that 'average' since I can get a very good one as of 500.

The 2000 and 2005 have only a tiny somewhat higher ranking than the 2001 and 2000 ones yet are 3 times as expensive.

I got it completely wrong. It's the highest price, I think. Sorry. I just wasn't thinking. I appologize once more.

Thanks.

You and not thinking

No need for saying sorry, Raul.

Still, I would never pay that much for a bottle of wine.

I believe it also depends when and where you drink wine. Like at a winter dinner a good heavy red one like a Margaux would suite perfect, yet in summertime with a picknick a Chardonnay proves to be awesome and at a summer dinner at home with light food a cold Chablis can do miracles.

I can't say that I've had the pleasure of drinking many variations of wine. I'm fairly certain that the only wine I've ever tasted is a merlot, and that is pretty much only when partaking in communion.

Based on that alone, I much prefer pale ales, stouts, and various whiskeys over the taste of a merlot.

You wouldn't believe it, but it happens to me often. Not thinking, that is.

I don't know why I appologized. I wasn't thinking.

i only once drank expensive wine, and that was when I went to London on
8th Jan 1987. I remember we landed on Heathrow in the afternoon, and it was already night. We went to a hotel (my parents and me) and in the evening we went out to search for a Chinese restaurant. We couldn't find it, and we asked an old lady. She took as across the whole town (mind you, London is enormous) to the best one. There I drank a bit of Chateau Lafitte Rothschild, I remember it was like 'ahhh what a hell, it's 300 pounds (or something like that), you only live once.'

I would pay that much, if I had the money, I'm a snob par excellence, I admit. It's my obsession with the french thing.
