Giodo – elegant Brunello and Nerello

do, 09/01/2020 - 09:45
Carlo Ferrini's own wines are light years from the ones that made his reputation as a winemaking consultant in Italy. More on Saturday. The last one, 2019, was Carlo Ferrini's forty-first vintage. He should be at a relaxed, confident stage in his career. But last month, presenting a vertical of the wines under his own label, Giodo, to a group of

Ontario – Anything But Chardonnay

wo, 08/01/2020 - 09:49
Respite from Chardonnay in Ontario. However much you love Chardonnay, a varied liquid diet is a good thing, as the organisers of the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration in Niagara-on-the Lake last July understood. For my notes on Chardonnays from Ontario and elsewhere, see Cool-climate Chardonnay – the tasting notes. The

The future of wine in Asia

wo, 08/01/2020 - 09:49
What do the 2020s have in store for wine in Asia? It's anybody's guess. As the year of the rat scampers towards us, a swarm of rodent-themed merchandise has hit the shelves, even including novelty wine labels (pictured). To mark the new year, it seems timely to consider what the future holds for wine in Asia – not just for 2020 but this new

Edouard Delaunay revived

di, 07/01/2020 - 09:49
New life breathed into an old name in Burgundy. No one could accuse Laurent Delaunay of underinvesting in his relaunch of the Burgundy négociant business founded in 1893 by his great-great-grandfather (second from the right, top row below). As explained towards the end of Bibulous dinners described, in 2017 fifth-generation wine producer Laurent

Truffling for Romanée-Conti 1978

ma, 06/01/2020 - 09:49
On Twelfth Night, to bring the festive season to a close, a self-indulgent account of a dinner that culminated in Romanée-Conti 1978 – a real one. A counterpoint to today's How to abstain perhaps? There are times when I don’t mind being used. Towards the end of last year I was invited to dinner by a very successful eastern European businessman

My new year's wine resolutions

za, 04/01/2020 - 02:02
A collection of good intentions. A version of this article is published by the Financial Times. Drink more wine. Since I reckon I taste many thousands of wine a year, you might think this an impossibility, but there is a massive difference between tasting (work) and drinking (pleasure). But like, I suspect, many proud owners of a cellarful

Nick's new year's resolutions

za, 04/01/2020 - 02:02
Nick, Unpacker in Chief, gets cross about how these bottles were packaged. It’s that time of the year again, the time for new resolutions for the coming year, if not in this instance for the coming decade. I am not talking here about personal resolutions that I believe I have made and failed to keep for as long as I can remember. Caring

Prevent yet more US tariffs on European imports

vr, 03/01/2020 - 18:02
Please keep the wine business airborne... As a reaction to a ruling on the Airbus/Boeing trade dispute, in October the US government slapped a 25% tariff on various European imports, including many wines and spirits. It is now threatening to increase the tariff to up to 100% on an even wider range of products from Europe, including far more
