The reductivity blew away and what was left was as perfectly fine as anything
Charles Shaw distributes.
Ironically, the French equivalent of "that's not worth a damn" is "Ca ne vaut pas un pet de lapin", "That's not worth a rabbit's fart..."
Say what you will about Charles Shaw, at least we keep our worst shit at home (Uh, forcing us to drink it ourselves). Unlike the French, who are perfectly willing to dump their swill on the American market (those Americaines cannot taste the difference anyway, of course).
Yep, the French have a lot to answer for...ever think maybe the rabbit's fart and French Rabbit wasn't ironic, but intentional?
Carl Eppig (Middleton, NH wrote:We recently popped a VDP Pinot that was quite nice. It was the 2004 Louis Latour, Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir, Vin de Pays Coteaux du Verdon. It ran $12.99 in the NH Liq Store, but I've seen it on wine-searcher for up to $3 less. Tom Stevenson has called it not only the best VDP Pinot he's tried, but possibly the best VDP period. Yes the price is high for a VDP, but it is as good or better than most Burgundies at twice the price.
