Sauvignon Blanc Redemption

Posted on: June 29th, 2007 by

Whether its grassy and green-beany from New Zealand or boring California, I’ll pass. I do, however, have an affinity for whites from Bordeaux, where a dose of Semillion gives it a great natural richness and the Sauv Blanc keeps it fresh and lively. I am really impressed with the 2006 “Le G” de Chateau Guiraud. It’s 70% Sauv Blanc and 30% Semillion. A very elegant wine that would be great with seafood and light enough for chugging.

  1. I would like to invite you to join an online conference of drink bloggers: Drink. Blog. Talk 2007. It will be held between September 22 and 29, 2007 and anybody who blogs about alcoholic drink is invited to take part. I have not been able to find a contact email on your site so, if you are interested, please contact me at japanesewhisky at and I will send you out an invite. If you want to find out more about who I am, I blog at about Japanese whisky. The idea for the conference came out of a discussion between myself, Kevin Erskine (of and Jeffrey Morgenthaler (of on a thread at Kevin’s blog. I hope you will be able to take part.

    May I say I hate you. Wine bloggers are the poorest form of people. I feel terrible writing on this blog yet know I will not ever become one of “those” people. For goodness sake! I don’t think anyone cares what you like to drink. You obviously know little about the variety nor been to loire or had wild yeast barrel fermented Kiwi examples. Get off the internet and hang yourself please. Recent studies show that Approx 35% of wine bloggers are actually plugging specific brands in reviews for financial gain. Where does this leave your credibility!?

    Why don’t you put your real name down; I may be an asshole but you are a coward. Why are you reading this? Why are you so moved to comment? I guess someone must care.

    Yes, I am making millions off of this from the Anti-Sauvignon Blanc league. Ha ha ha. Ho ho ho.

    I’d probably want to hang myself if I met someone like you.

    Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate your interest. Asshole.
