  • A Disturbing Trend in the Wine World

    … Two recent reports suggest fundamental changes in the wine world in the not-too-distant future. First up, Antonio Cevola reports on the “Burgundization of Barolo”: Today, Gaja’s wines are approaching the DRC club.

    … Harissa marinated chicken thighs. From Ottolenghi the cookbook. The ingredients are listed here. I deboned 8 thighs, leaving the skin on, but removing the most fat riddled portions.

I was recently taken with a very nice glass of White Burgundy that I found surprisingly wonderful for a mere $25.99. First, the wine: Jean Baptiste Ponsot Rully 2012…

    … 2012 Domaine Collotte Le Clos de Jeu Marsannay Mmmm… nothing quite beats the nose on a good red Burgundy. Wonderful, wonderful nose of earth and pepper, red fruit, bramble, and fresh tobacco.

    … Aggrieved chefs and their supporters routinely cite, among the evils of journalism, the neophilic tendency of critics to descend upon a new establishment and review its infancy, without ever returning to see how it matures.

Two of the greatest Barolo vintages in the '80s were 1988 and 1989 and Vigna La Delizia is one of Fontanafredda's most prestigious crus. This bottle represented both the vintage and the cru exceedingly well with tobacco, balsamic, and truffle notes accompanying elegant…

    … Happy New Year. And bring on 2015. And it’s Burgundy time. So a timely three bottles.
