2008 Bordeaux: A Day In A Life

There was no easing into the job and frankly I would not want it any other way. Wines tasted in the morning at an annual ten-year on Bordeaux tasting on one side of the Atlantic, written up on the flight over to New York with my mouth still coated in tannin and completed on the other side of the Atlantic...just a day in the life, so that readers get an idea how things are going to roll with the 2008 Bordeaux.

The Corner Townhouse is one of the many recently born Rome restaurants that are popular with the “in” crowd, but The Corner has potential to stick around thanks to its inventive food, decent wine list and a beautiful dining room.

2016 Planet Oregon Pinot Noir ($22.00) 91

2016 Planet Oregon Pinot Noir, 91 points

This vibrant bottling from one of Oregon's iconic producers, is a side project from Soter using purchased fruit, and is a crazy value. It delivers an array of lively, spice-accented red fruit and floral qualities and shows the balance and length of Pinots that cost twice as much. (JR)


Cellar Favorites


1972 Paul Jaboulet Ainé Cornas

For my maiden “Cellar Favourite”, the obvious choices would be either Bordeaux or Burgundy because I am fortunate to drink a hell of a lot of old and rare bottles. But instead, I opted for a Northern Rhône that I drank before Christmas with friends at one of my favorite London restaurants, Chez Bruce.
