More on Screw Caps
Dean Linebarger writes that he was in Burgundy earlier
this year and while visiting Patrice Rion, noted that
screw caps were being used for some of his white wines
and his Bourgogne Rouge. The screw caps he is using
are a new technology which allow a slight amount of
breathing similar to a cork. Rion noted that his screw
cap wines always sell much faster than the same wine
Mark Wills sent a screw cap alert from Australia.
Rumor at the Barossa Valley Wine Show was that
Penfolds is going to bottle Grange under Stelvin from
the 2006 vintage onwards. He also noted that he has
some Nicholas Laroche Chablis L’Obedience (close to
his top bottling) from the 2002 vintage under screw cap.
I could never figure out a suitable use for the thousands
of corks I have saved. Now what am I going to do with
all of these screw caps? Help!
