One way to Cut Down


It’s quite simple. Château Gasquerie, Côtes de Bordeaux 2014. If you are anything like me, you will simply not drink any more, past the initial glass, if this is the bottle you have in front of you for the evening. It ‘kills all the joy’ & brings nothing instead, or worse than nothing - misery.

There are some other candidates for nomination into this category, but Gasquery 14 has to be the absolute champion. It simply has these fluids of the unloved, unloving & utterly untender character that I find quite remarkable. Stunning, in fact.

(Still under the promise not to publish any more ‘member reviews’ on the main site, so posting it here instead)

P.S. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot more examples of wines which are very-very dangerous for the purpose of Cutting Down, because they will make you do the exact opposite, once you try them. Some wines in fact should never be tasted…
