Default Chave 2003 Offerus vs Chave Domain St Joseph 2003

Tried both....could not really discerne a difference.

Both Chave 2003 seemed GREAT!

While the Offerus was some $15 a bottle less than the Domaine Saint
Joseph--it there was a difference...it was not detectable by me.

Just because I did not notice a difference does not mean its not there.
Sometimes my tastes are off. Some medications can mess with tastes.

I will check this again next week.

I'm really surprised, Richard. However, that sounds like a pretty good
outcome for you. The cheaper wine as a match for the more expensive.
Sounds like you made a good purchase for yourself.
