Kansas and 2005 Chateau de Reignac

Kansas breakdown - Hoping to defend last year's national championship, the Jayhawks will be anxious to forget about their early round loss in the Big 12 tournament. Sherron Collins will need to step up and perform like a superstar, but the team will also need to feed the ball inside to Cole Aldrich on a regular basis. While Coach Bill Self may have been critized early in the season for building a daunting preseason schedule for his young team that decision has clearly paid off.

2005 Chateau de Reignac - Over the past many vintages Reignac has been proving that the quality of the grapes is more important than the name of the Chateau when it comes to good wine. Like Coach Self, Reignac owner Yves Vatelot constantly puts his wines into tastings with the biggest and most expensive Bordeaux (wines that are over 100 times the price). While it may seem like an odd choice, tasters are always shocked at the quality of Reignac, and constantly pitting it against the big boys makes Yves Vatelot focus on his craft even more diligently to ensure he continues to earn his spot among the giants.
