  • Barolo may be Italy’s most famous red but surprisingly it hails from a very small vineyard region. Tucked into the top northwest corner, just south of the medieval town of Alba in the heart the Langhe region of Piemonte, it’s barely 8 kilometres wide. The vineyards are breathtaking. The snowcapped Alps form a distant backdrop to a series of hill... Read More

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • I've taken the liberty of posting a portion of Kermit Lynch's most recent newsletter. It's a piece Jim Harrison wrote for them nearly a decade ago on wine's significance in his life, and there are several specific examples of food and wine matching.Harrison died recently and I mourned him as another of the greats who have passed this decade. Lot... Read More

  • I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More

  • What was the vintage, Duncan? Sounds like they may be using whole bunches (including stems) and that it was still probably young. Perhaps it might've benefited from a few hours' decant?Here're some notes on the winemaker, whom Kermit Lynch apparently things much of. I haven't had any of his wines yet.  Edit:My bad, appears they destem completely... Read More

  • Domaine Gachot-Monot Nuits St. Georges les Poulettes Premiere Cru 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle was bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/90903 for £12.50. I bought it because I had a Cotes de Nuits Village wine from the same producer a few years ago and thought it just exquisite. Nuits St Georges is an AOC created in 1936 for red and white wines [ though nearly all are red ] made of pinot noir and chardonna... Read More
