For the past couple of months, Uncork Life! has been updated several times a week with wine reviews, accounts of great meals, videos, and more. Now you have the chance to get all the news—albeit in shorter form—even more often. Go to Twitter and sign up to follow “WineUpdate” for regular posts from all over the wine world. Then visit for full write-ups, videos, and even more in-depth coverage. We are working to become your one-stop source for the best that the world of wine has to offer.

Right now, I’m on my way up to New York for a tasting of Chateau
Pichon-Baron (the grand vin is officially called Chateau Longueville au Baron de Pichon-Longueville) and Chateau Pichon-Lalande (officially Chateau Pichon-Longueville, Comtesse de Lalande). Quite a mouthful, to be sure, but so are the wines—both renowned and highly-sought-after Second Growths.

I’ll be tasting side-by-side examples from both chateaux’s 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, and 2000 vintages, as well as Pichon-Lalande 1989, 1985, and 1975, and Pichon-Baron 1990 and 1985. Check back here later this week for a full accounting and video of the wines, and follow the updates on Twitter today as I post live from the restaurant.
