For the second week in a row, I have to put my man Hardy Wallace in this spot. I can’t think of a trip that produced more great material than Hardy’s trip to Bordeaux. His “reviews” of Petrus and Lafite Rothschild are absolutely classic. Hardy is now back in his beloved “Healdsburgundy”, and it will be interesting to see if we get treated to more of Hardy’s Alvin and the Chipmunk auditions.
Making a return to “The Bad” is HR 1161, this year’s version of the effort to restrict wine shipping that started with last year’s HR 5034. This post from the Ship Compliant blog gives some thoughts on the bill.
