  • Utter, unmitigated rubbish, not to put too fine a point on it.Chablis has been a hotbed of oak vs steel controversy for three decades now (notice that's only the tip of the iceberg in historical terms for the region--before that, plenty of oak). Major figures lead the attack from both sides of the divide, trying to make names for themselves. At ... Read More

  • Glad you have your priorities straight, DGC!I've encountered this, too, on and off over the years. Not common, but common enough to remember clearly and recognize quickly after multiple occurrences. Have had it from wines of South America, Eastern Europe, North Africa and off-locations like India and other parts of Asia (from Near East over to E... Read More

  • I was just thinking it was about time we heard from you Red ; )Beajolais and Gamay go together hand in hand. That is to say, all the red wine grown in the region of Beajolais, which is 3-4 hours by car South East of Paris, France, is made using 100% Gamay, and 99% of all wine from there is red! So basically Gamay has a monopoly in that region, a... Read More

  • " but the idea of some pan-Italian red sauce restaurant wouldn't really have existed and no one would have said, "It's so authentic they ask if you want white or red sauce with your clams/mussels."Richard - not true at all. The Italians themselves, at least those I knew, spoke of themselves as being from Naples, Rome, Sicily, etc. But to non-Ita... Read More

  • I refreshed my memory on Lichine, after it had gathered cobwebs for a couple of decades. I thought I'd remembered two trends that he helped establish which have greatly affected our wine consumption behavior.First of all, he established the first wine-tasting room at a winery, at Prieuré-Lichine back in the early 50s. No one had apparently allow... Read More

  • "The red-checked tablecloth places with the bottle of Chianti are perfect examples of pan-Italian."My favorite Italian place in Tokyo (hope my Tuscan chef/owner-friend Mario who runs another restaurant I often frequent doesn't read this) has red-checked tablecloths and is literally named 'Chianti'.  ;-)    Was an in-spot for celebs back in the '...

  • DM - as you know, it's originally from Spain in Aragon. It was the most widely planted red variety in the world just a few years ago and may still be. It was also the most planted red grape in Spain, which still has like twice as much as anywhere else in the world. Relatively speaking they have even more Monastrell, but that's a different story....

  • If anyone wants a counterpoint to CA (or Portuguese) Trousseau, as well as an interesting, refreshing white that isn't the same as chardonnay from there (which itself is different to that from nearby Burgundy), grab what you can from this offer of Ian Cauble's, if any's currently left. Good stuff. Apologies for the messy formatting. That emailer... Read More

  • It's not just the year, but the year for specific locations and microclimates. DV, I'm assuming wines that come out of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands don't have the same 'vintages' as those over in the Okanagan, much less further east on the Niagara bench.Just as in Canada, so as in CA, WA, OR, France, Italy, etc., especially over larger ...
