The thread about the Wine Century Club got me thinking about the wines/grapes that have never made it to my “tasted” list, and specifically about the ones that I really feel like I ought to have tried, because they’re quite mainstream. These are the ones that I really have always intended to try, but just never got around to, without any particular reason why. My top shameful omissions are:
Old-school, age-it-for-20-years, tar-and-roses-epiphany Barolo (ok, I know why I haven’t got around to this, because £££££££!);
Blaufrankisch (I have been on the verge of Blaufrankisch so many times, but just never managed to commit to it)
Someone please out-do me and tell me that you’ve never tried Merlot!
