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.
