Chorey-lès-Beaune: A Banging Burgundy Deal for Beginners and Pinot-philes Alike

If you're new to Red Burgundy it's hard to think of a better village to start with than Chorey-lès-Beaune. The wines are lovely examples of what makes Burgundy Burgundy: airy Pinot Noir with lovely fruit flavors that are nevertheless defined more by their savory side than their fruit.

The Healing Power of Clos des Quarts

The Healing Power of Clos des Quarts

My wife and I really miss our friends in the restaurant industry, but are making the best of it by cooking up a storm at home. Last night I opened some tiny briny oysters from New Brunswick, sauteed a filet of black sea bass from Montauk and boiled the first spring asparagus. Nice dinner. Had a bottle of 2017 Chateau des Quarts Pouilly-Fuisse "Clos des Quarts" monopole.

Humble Bourgogne Blanc + 70 Year Old Meursault Vines!

Humble Bourgogne Blanc + 70 Year Old Meursault Vines!

One that is still fresh and energetic yet with just enough cellaring to get beyond its awkward oaky/reductive stage. Something that tastes like Meursault would be nice. And how about under $30?
