Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.

“You have to be more than a little mad, and more than a bit of a masochist, to love Burgundy. Burgundy is a fickle and unreliable lover. It’s the source of more heartbreak than country music radio. Burgundy is like the girl with the curl in the nursery rhyme. When she’s good she’s very very good and when she’s bad she’s horrid.” A great column on Burgundy from Jay McInerney. He writes more on his blog.

Elsewhere on the tubes, Mike Steinberger writes about his experience at La Paulée de New York.

This past Saturday, “Open That Bottle Night” creators Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher covered the annual event live on Palate Press. It looks like a good time was had by many!

Elsewhere in Palate Press, a super interesting piece on the impact of wine on your teeth. According to Dan Marut, a well known dentist, “brushing right ater wine consumption can cause more damage than good.

More research shows that moderate alcohol consumption is good for your health. Two recent studies, which appeared together in the journal BMJ, conclude that moderate consumption of alcohol can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%.

A nice interview from BrooklynGuy with Jean-Marie Fourrier of Domaine Fourrier.

Kansas legislators take another step toward allowing the sale of full-strength beer, wine, and liquor in grocery and convenience stores.

  1. Gotta disagree with Steinberger regarding Colin-Morey Corton Charlemagne. The 08, as with the 07, is showing no signs of giving anything up for a few years. The St. Aubin on the other hand was queued up nicely. As for some other things, at one point my friend and I went from Fourrier to Roumier to Mugnuret-Gibourg. WTF? Rousseau was a little hectic and the Clos des Beze was off the chain but Roumier and Mug-Gibourg owned the show for me. Crazy stuff. As I stood sipping Jobard and oysters I mentioned to my friend that I was quite often unsure of the existance of beauty but at that moment I was standing corrected. For those who are interested they should keep tabs in this tasting because it IS open to all.
