Eugenio Bocchino 2010 Roccabella - Langhe Nebbiolo Discovery

Eugenio Bocchino 2010 Roccabella – Langhe Nebbiolo Discovery

It’s been a minute since I name checked my favorite grape variety Nebbiolo.  But a nice Langhe Nebbiolo can work well at any time of the year, summer included.  The Eugenio Bocchino “Roccabella” Langhe Nebbiolo has been on my radar for a while thanks to the kind folks at Frankly Wines.  They have been pointing...
Foradori 2010 Fontanasanta Nosiola & Orange Wine Fever

Foradori 2010 Fontanasanta Nosiola & Orange Wine Fever

It’s official, orange wine fever has swept the wine world.  It started in Northern Italy with Gravner and Radikon, and it has spread the world over, with examples being produced even in my own backyard in Brooklyn.  So when I spied that one of my favorite winemakers, Elizabetta Foradori, had begun producing an orange wine...

Domane Bart & Comte Armand, as in Burgundy.

Well the original Burg hater is fully in Burg mode.  And I really think what got me here, after thoughtful retrospection, is Beaujolais.  With that in mind and with the recently released The Finest Wines of Burgundy by Bill Nanson in my skyrocket (pocket), I was swayed to order some Burgs on a recent night...

Domaine St. Nicolas Gamay @ Diner

It’s nearly Spring and Gamay has sprung.  At my local haunt Diner they are serving Domaine St. Nicolas Fiefs Vendéens 2010 “Gammes en May” Gamay by the glass.  It comes in a clear bottle (different), and the color is a nice rich purple with stoney red and purple fruits, and it goes down a treat. ...
Real Paella & Foillard Morgon

Real Paella & Foillard Morgon

Normally I reach right for Rioja when I do up a Paella, or at least a Spanish wine.  It kind of seems like sacrilege not to.  But I have been feeling the Cru Beaujolais lately so I went there instead with the Jean Foillard 2010 “Cote du Py” Morgon.  And if stepping outside of a...
