Wine Barbarian on assignment in Amsterdam, Burgundy & Paris!

It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it - go to the Netherlands and France, drink Bordeaux, Rhone, Provence, Burgundy, German and Italian wines, eat truffles, escargot, rabbit, foie gras, duck and mountains of cheese - and report back to Wine Barbarian readers!

Here I am visiting one of the most famous - and expensive - vineyards in the world: Domaine De La Romanee-Conti in Burgundy. 

How pricey? The La Tache 2005 is available in BC Liquor Stores for $8,500 a bottle! Their 2005 Richebourg is a more affordable $5,500 each. Sadly, no tasting room with free samples. ;-(

I am currently in Paris eating and drinking my way through the City of Light after visiting Burgundy - stay tuned for reports on my travels after I return shortly - and perhaps more portly!
