Before sharing my tasting notes on this wine, let me just say I’m relieved my wine geekiness/giddiness did not show too badly when sharing a table with Robert Brittan. He’s a wine making legend out of Napa Valley. For 16 years, Brittan was the winemake...

This is textbook Barolo, a nose redolent of limestone, antiseptic medicinal tones, cherries in alcohol, a touch of angelica root, and subtle insinuation of herb in a very focused and driven aromatic display. On the palate this is superbly precise with ...

The 1991 La Landonne will provide multimillionaires with plenty of pleasure over the next 20 years. They can also debate whether it or the perfect 1990 is the better wine. The 1991's bouquet offers huge, smoky, new saddle leather, licorice, Asian spice...

What do you drink when you're not drinking wine? We've posed this question to winemakers and wine lovers, wine directors and store owners -- and the answer always arrives with a bit of a crooked smile. The vintners love beer, the retailers tell stories of ghostly green absinthe, of vodka made in airplane hangars. And our readers, well: Our read... Read More
This is textbook Barolo, a nose redolent of limestone, antiseptic medicinal tones, cherries in alcohol, a touch of angelica root, and subtle insinuation of herb in a very focused and driven aromatic display. On the palate this is superbly precise with abundant tannins that are so finely textured they are already showing signs of a textural silki... Read More
It is probably not a surprise that the wines of Giacomo Conterno are among my absolute favorites. My finest wine experiences have been with his masterpieces known as Monfortino and Cascina Francia. The wines made by Giovanni Conterno, Giacomo’s son, through the 1990s, and now made by his son Roberto, are virtually eternal monuments to everything... Read More

I've been drinking wine for 40 years and just now getting a bit more serious about it. My favorites are merlot and cabernet but can enjoy almost any wine, red... Read More
From another thread:GregT: " Oh it makes my ears bleed. I need to go and drink a bottle of Sang de Cailloux"Dmcker: "So what's the 'terroir' for the blood of stones? Great naming for a domaine. Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More
I will devote this column to the small appellation of Carmignano. Carmignano is the Tuscan appellation closest to where we are living in Prato. It is small and had to fight for its inclusion in the DOCG scheme of things, a fight that was won in 1975. Before that Carmignano was subsumed under the Chianti Montalbano region. The wines in the Carmig... Read More
