    You clearly don't know from Alsace and great German rieslings, not to mention Chablis. Wines to lay down for a decade.

    I prefer reds however, I agree with WB on the Alsatian and German varietals; there are some good whites to be had. They become "girly" when they have copious amounts of residual sugar. A dry or off-dry white can be very refreshing. Besides, I don't know of a good red wine that goes with Thai food or fish!

    If you like malalactic fermentation, I guess you can go for european wines.

    The truth be told in truly "great wines" are those wineries (other than cloudy bay) who use modern technologies are far superior than the older wineries that been in existence. Not to mention that all grapes in european wineries are actually "new vines" since ww2 time. But we can talk about phylloxera another time.

    wineries that use mechanical harvesting and other modern methods are far superior, the grapes are in the stemmer-crusher within 30 minutes. Not sitting on a trailer for 3 days rotting with loads of bacteria.

    But, this could be a start of a great thread that's for sure:)
