That's plenty, especially since you'll need to get all those castles in.Only a moment now, running out the door, but will revisit later with actual na... Read More

Lightly dust a crust with even the addition of some crushed almonds or walnuts or pine nuts or others, and the range of interesting wines increases.

  • Le Fils des Gras Moutons Muscadet Sevre et Maine 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent Muscadet, the back label says these grapes come from 18 acres of vines that average over 50 yrs of age in Gras Moutons. Light yellow in color, there's a bit of aroma of lemon pith which may show better if we drank it a bit less cool. Nice lemon cream, a touch of white grapefuit, a hint of white pepper, lively acidity and a medium finish. Read More
