What's the craziest wine ? you've ever answered?

by Alan Uchrinscko » Wed Mar 29, 2006 3:14 am

As I was retelling my story earlier today, I was thinking to myself I have to ask some other people what their answer would be. ITB people like myslef get a lot of weird questions but this one almost threw me, and I thought I had heard them all.

A guy came in the store one day and asked "What wine goes best with sex?" He asked another employee, and I wasn't paying much attention, but the other employee just drew a blank in shock. So he looked ta me and asked me (trying not to laugh). I just looked up and matter-of-factly said "Chambolle-Muisgny Les Amoureuses", "the Lovers". The guy said something along the lines of "okay, makes sense" walked out with a $135 bottle of wine with no further questions and that was it.

You don't get that every day.

This is gospel true and X-rated. I have a rather "loose" young lady patient with tattoos and piercings everywhere. She asked me if it would hurt her boyfriend to drink Champagne from her Australia (you know -- down under).

The craziest name for a wine (which is a true name) is a wine made by François Dagueneau who named one of his wine, in reaction to the pompous names that are created here and there :

"quintessence de mes roustons". In slang, rouston means balls.

So it is "quintessence of my balls".

Not bad !!!

Not so much a question, but a statement that answered a question at a wine club dinner a while back. The president asked a local winemaker for his thoughts on a masked wine in the glasses of the large group of members and their guests in attendance. After pointing out some of the numerous faults with the wine in question, the respected identity concluded with the remark "Whoever made this, should be shot!". Without much ado, the president called upon wine master on the night to unmask the wine. It was, indeed, the 1991 Reserve Chardonnay made by the very winemaker who had just returned to his seat.
Cheers,

David

David,

Reminds me of my own infamous "If this is not a premier cru Meursault I will quit my job". [the wine was Staglin rutherford Chardonnay]

Alan, I'll get back to your question later ... as you might imagine, as an Internet wine-question guy, I get some lulus, but I just got up, and my brain isn't working yet. :)

Your name: The system is simple, so what you entered when you registered is what you got. You may be able to change it yourself by going to "Profile" and making the change. Or I can change it for you, but I'll hold off on doing that until you respond, because (I assume) when I change it, this will also change your login username, so you'll need to know the change has happened so you won't be inadvertently locked out. Let me know when you've seen this, and once you give the go-ahead, I'll change it promptly.

Done. I changed it. I never use my name as a login cause most places don't accept something with spaces...

More like he mumbled something about "having to examine it".

He should have said, "From the look of things Dom Perignon's been there many times already". :)

craziest wine statement

by JC (NC) » Wed Mar 29, 2006 2:06 pm

A friend who was switching over from distributing beer to distributing wine (for a very large company) told me that the Pinot Grigio was one of their more popular brands. I informed him politely that Pinot Grigio is a grape variety--not a brand of wine. Fortunately, this friend had acquaintances in the different grocery stores along his route who could probably help in his wine education until he learned the ropes.

Carbonated wine? Yikes, talk about air embolus! :shock:

Besides, I'm sure something more bready like Cuvee Winston Churchill would have been more appropriate.

An older "upper-class" couple (he in suit - she wearing her furcoat) in a posh food and beverage shop (where you can get Krug, iranian caviar, etc. - just to situate):

He talks: "look, they have an italian wine here - who is it made by? .... ah: chianti - I have had already wines from this maker, I visited him once in my youth"

Her to him: "darling, they seem to sell more wines from this producer - look and this one must very good. It has a number on the label - 1998"

True story.

Idiocy and arrogance is class-less.

That's priceless, Jean; I'll be re-telling your story.
