The new issue of the "Wine Spectator" (with "France's New Stars" on the cover) has a nice large pic (inside) of Pierre Perrin and his lugged steel Colnago. It's always nice to see one of my favorite "old school" producers is also a cyclist, riding a top "old school" bike!

I've got a few bottles of the 1994 Chateauneuf-du-Pape left that I 'm about ready to polish off. Real nice stuff. Cool to know the proprietor is a cyclist.

The '89 is one of the best wines I've ever had!

Beaucastel has crept out of our price range, unfortunately. As have a lot of our favorite wines from the last 5 years or so.

We're drinking a lot of Italian, Australian, and Spanish stuff these days.

for all those chi chi European bike components somehow.

Maybe he can wrap the bottles in cork tape, so we get some more take home value.
And with the dollar's recent plummet vs. the Eurovindicator

I'm really paranoid about what the price will be for the '01!

Despite the increases, the quality has kept this one on my "buy" list through 2000, but if the 2001 is $80...
