Does anybody know what the wine James claims is the best he's ever had is? I feel like buying a good bottle to match my rubbish "bottles you can get for a 10er" just in case one of the ladies of the forum come over and i need to impress (skylock katwalk we can get drunk and find out where Viper lives and go harass him!!! ) I thought he said his name was John Olden but I am having trouble with that. It was the guy that finally convinced James grapes grow different in different soil. They were red wines and they mentioned syrah/Shiraz grapes but that was earlier and I don't know how much went into his blend.
EDIT: I found out who it was, it was John Alban and I emailed them asking what it was but I don't have much faith in a reply, anybody happen to see a James article where he mentions the blend?
I believed that wine to be the 2005 Lorraine which is 100% syrah. That wine will be released next year and there is a long waiting list for it. Perhaps you may come across it on the internet--good luck and thanks for contacting us!
