Chardonnay is a simple blank canvas of a grape, and one has to train it to taste a certain way. It easily absorbs flavors from its soils and surrounding conditions. It obeys commands. It reacts to its diet: when overfed, it gets fat. When starved, it can be too skinny and weak. It’s submissive and compliant, doing what it’s told.

  • Okay, I'm providing wine for my family (or I hope so, or I won't have anything that I like to drink) and I strongly recommend a cabernet franc from the Loire.  Chinon, Bourgeuil, or St. Nicholas de Bourgeuil are often very reasonable, they go well with the gamier aspects of the dark meat and many sides, nice cleansing acidity... and very good ex...

  • Although there are probably as many red varieties as white, a few of them seem to dominate.  After chardonnay, which seems like a false synonym for "white wine" with many folks, the field of whites is more splintered, IMO.  Sure, there's riesling, which captures a lot of press among the know-something crowd, and SB, which can be pretty polarizin...
