This is the kind of thing that's an ongoing issue for Wine Focus, WOTM, WT101, whatever: The more "interesting" topics tend to have a higher barrier to entry in terms of either availability or cost. I had an old Cote-Rotie kicking around, but even though I like Northern Rhone Syrah and will drink one at any good excuse, the only other examples I have here are Big Boys like younger Hermitage that I'm just not going to open the only one (or one of two) that I have just to experiment.
I do have notes coming up on an '03 Cave de Tain Croze. It wasn't very good.
But seriously, what do you guys suggest? Is it better to put up really interesting topics even though they may lure only light traffic? Or go with more available wines that will generate more discussions but not really offer as much inspiration? It's not a totally easy call.
