  • Very interesting, DM.  I was always of the opinion, and, of course, opinions are, pretty much, worthless, that "Claret" was a Britiish nomencature for just about any red Bordeaux wine.  My definitive source is no less an expert than the well-traveled agent from Universal Exports (starting at roughly 00:58 of this clip).  Maybe Duncan should jump...

  • It’s urban legend that top wine pros can blindly identify a wide array of wines. Blindly naming a wine’s provenance, vintage, and vineyard is the most humbling exercise in the wine world. But there are some things you can do to get closer to the correct answer. This is a rich, endless topic. For right now, we’ll focus on the identification of un... Read More
