http://www.WTSO.com is one of the very few e-commerce sites offering magnums for sale every so often.
And tomorrow, it goes all out with nothing but magnums. And a few double magnums.
Big bottles for big occasions!
Wines to look for are 2016 and 2016 Bordeaux ( St. Emilion, Côtes de Bordeaux, and Medoc) and wines from the Southern Rhone.
Also some killer Spanish reds.
Maybe a Champagne or two will be offered.
If so, Champagne, the real bubbly made in Champagne, develops more complex flavors and richer texture when fermented in a magnum or bigger bottle. Honest!
WTSO has been coming up with top notch California wines lately. Keep an eye out for Caymus Cabernet and wines from Cuvaison, Cornerstone, Maroon, Saintsbury, Blackbird, and Encantado.
