  • You know the scene. He walks into the wine bar, orders a glass of Macon Villages and spends the next half hour telling you he's an expert on Burgundy. Well, don't believe him, Burgundy's hallowed vineyards hold mysteries far beyond mere mortal's understanding. That said, the code to this magical region is there to be cracked! There's no better w...

The amount of diacetyl from the grapes, which is the compound that gives it a buttery quality, is limited. How much you get depends on the amount in the grape... Read More

  • This past spring I took my very first wine trip to Germany. Before I took off, I did a bit of homework: There are thirteen regions (Anbaugebiete) for quality wine production in Germany: Ahr, Baden, Franconia, Hessische Bergstrasse, Mittelrhein, Mosel, Nahe, Palatinate, Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Saale-Unstrut, Saxony, and Württemberg.

Lots of earth offset by heavy blueberry and blackberry notes with a touch of smoked meat in there too. Reminiscent of my childhood and our family's late summer visits to a cigar chomping uncle in Texas who often treated us t... Read More

    This bottle was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/114698. On the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy there is a slope known as Mont Rachet [Bare Mountain] between the villages of Puligny and Chassange [both of which have appended Montrachet to their names] which is famous for white wines although there are a few re...

  • Nice reference link Emark. Hope that helped a bit Alan C? Although you were looking for vin that a more moderate class might have consumed, which brings me back to the sherry... and possibly a port as a dessert wine.
