    …. My dad can do compound interest in his head. Give my dad less than half a minute and he’ll tell you, to the second, how long his dog, Basil, has been alive. And then there’s me. Oh dear. I don’t do numbers. And I don’t do money either. I’m pretty good at spending it but counting it? Sorry, Dad. And sorry, Robert. Burgundy is a place of beauty…

  • Wining through the holidays…

    … It’s that time of year again. The “holidays”. You throw a party, or you go to a party. For a huge meal. It could be a traditional roast turkey, accompanied by stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. Or it could be roast goose or duck, or a Honeybaked ham. Or (shudder) a turducken. Regardless of what you…

This wine is beautiful with pomegranate, cranberry and great acidity. It brought me back to a trip I took to this area in 2009, when I sampled my first Aussie Pinot and took a $25 bottle…

    … 2009 Domaine Roger-Joseph Belland Santenay-Beauregard Premier Cru I’ll let my face do all the talking. This wine was a little frustrating. Pretty clean on the nose - cranberries, underripe raspberries and strawberries along with clove, cinnamon, fresh twigs, and wildflowers. Same tart berries on the palate with less complexity and fewer vegetal notes. A little short on length. 3/5 bones $$ Pinot Noir 13% abv Santenay-Beauregard (Burgundy), FRANCE …

  • The Wines of Chablis – with Domaine Laroche

    … Located in northeast France, the Chablis region was annexed by the Dukes of Burgundy in the fifteenth century. While it is considered the northernmost extension of the Burgundy wine region, it is separated from the Côte d’Or by the Morvan hills. In fact, the town of Beaune located is more than 70 miles away. This makes Chablis relatively…

I can’t stress how elegant this wine is. Retailing for about $50 it is sure to please your wine enthusiast(s) at Thanksgiving paired with your perfectly prepared turkey.
