arma virumque cano (et alia)
Il faut toujours avoir un tire-bouchon. Nous possédons plusieurs et préfèrent "the Rabbit".Je pense que le choc de frapper la bouteille contre le mur ruinerait le goût de ce vin.Mais si ce vin est de la merde...Laci
Jadegold: “I realize gunloons usually have their wine in bottles with screwtops or out of a box or-shudder-mixed with soda pop.”The Leitz Rüdesheimer Magdalenenkreuz Spatlese I had yesterday had a screw cap. The only good whine you know is after SCOTUS rules on a second amendment case.
I always thought that gunloons shot off the top of the bottle with their 9 mm.
TS: Many rieslings are subject to what is sometimes called "cork taint." Cork taint may or may not be a figment of someone's imagination, but many producers of rieslings have gone to glass corks or the stainless "Stelvin" caps.
Indeed, TCA taint has caused many high end wine producers to rethink using traditional corks (certainly not limited to Rieslings). Being a screw cap wine is no longer derogatory. Shall we pick this up on a wine blog?
Being a screw cap wine is no longer derogatory.As you know, TCA is kind of controversial as to whether it really exists or not. Part of the reason is visual aesthetics-people who are new to wine may be turned off to see a cork that appears to be less than pristine.I think the jury's out on screw caps.
Jadegold: “As you know, TCA is kind of controversial as to whether it really exists or not.”Wow, you’re still jadegolding even when we are not talking about guns. It most certainly does exist.
A lot of very good wines have screwtops these days. Most of the New World ones and even some Italian, non-traditional French.Screwtops also avoid the problems that can arise with cork - erm - getting corked. Or disintegrating.Jus sayin.
