    Fine wines with lunch, old-school wine trade style

    … These wines were recently tasted at a rather fine lunch at La Trompette, which is a great restaurant. It went on a long time, as you can imagine. I’m always struck by how well older bottles of top Bordeaux show in these situations, and how inconsistent red Burgundy can be. And the Rhône can be very strong, when it’s the right people making…

    Wine of the Week 21 – blast from my past

    … Saint-Émilion with vineyards in the background. Long ago when I was just a boy I was a trainee wine shop manager. Not knowing as much about wine as my miss-spent youth had led me to expect – I well remember asking what claret was! – I set out trying all the wines in the shop that I could afford. It was 1984 and Bordeaux was big. The 1982…

    Pink Bordeaux

    … As summer draws to a close and colder weather approaches, it was a pleasure to sample a pair of Bordelais rosés on a warm Sunday afternoon. Bordeaux gets so much attention for its red wines that it is often easy to overlook the white, pink, and sparkling wines from the region.

    Chateau Béard La Chapelle, 2008 Saint-Émilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux

    … This beautiful bottle of Bordeaux comes from Saint-Émilion, a French region known for its Merlot-based blends.

After all, I was getting a Saint…
