First timer...
December 29th, 2006

…just about 5 days ago. Hint. We had read about this one and others in various articles, but were pretty surprised when it happened to us. It sure was a pleasant surprise and I might become a collector! Any clue what I am talking about?

PP, pp, bb, 66 or 99? Any idea?

EDIT: Cork or no cork. Sometimes the flaw can be quite subtle and barely noticeable, other times it’s a slap in your face. But what to do when the host takes a first sip and declares the wine to be perfectly fine…awkward moment. Anyway, as more and more bottles and certainly very good ones, too, come with alternative wine closures, situations like the above should be of the past.

We totally support the idea to save the few left over cork oaks, but weren’t quite sure what to think of some of the natural cork replacement candidates which we read and heard about. Would the next step be wine out of a fancy Tetra Pak? Anyway, the glass stopper, we think, is a keeper. It in fact adds a stylish note.

By the way, it sealed a 2005 “Grauer Burgunder”, Weingut Friedrich Becker.
