Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape: Current Releases

Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape: Current Releases | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe, Chateauneuf-du-Pape: Current Releases. The transitive property of wine at work. For many, the stony plateau of La Crau defines Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the highest point of the appellation, with a stunning view of Mont Ventoux on a clear day, and the sun beating down on the blinding white of its round stones known as galets roulés. Likewise, for many, the name Domaine du Vieux Telegraphe is synonymous with La Crau, thanks to the estate's pioneering founder Hippolyte Brunier who cultivated his section of the plateau with diligence in the late 19th century despite the inherent difficulties involved. Is it any wonder, then, that for...

Napa Wines and a Diversity of Opinions

Napa Wines and a Diversity of Opinions | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
Napa Wines and a Diversity of Opinions. Who would have thought a simple little tasting of lesser known grape varieties made into wine in Napa would be so divisive? Last month, as many of you know, a bunch of journalists and aspiring journalists attended the Symposium for Professional Wine Writers in Napa. This three-day event offers a unique opportunity to both network with fellow wine writers, as well as to improve one's craft. The organizers (which includes me, by way of full disclosure, as a member of the event's advisory board) attempt to create an agenda that focuses partly on wine knowledge, partly on the craft...

Parker Comments on “Parkerization”

Parker Comments on “Parkerization” | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

Last week, some of the nation’s top wine writers gathered in Napa Valley for the annual Wine Writers Symposium. The most anticipated event took place at 8:30am on Wednesday. While wine writers typically aren't a morning bunch, the room was absolutely packed a full thirty minutes before Parker's arrival. Those who followed #WWS14 on Twitter were able to follow (and react) to Parker's remarks in real time. Bill Ward collected some of the best quotes, and Fred Swan has already reacted.

Today I take pleasure in upending one of the most common wine story tropes: the “disappearing underappreciated wine” story. These stories play the emotions like a zither: loss, urgency to act, the opportunity to be one of a special group of people who appreciate exotic beauty. I’ve written a bunch of them: about Madeira, artisan …

Debating Robert Parker At His Invitation

Debating Robert Parker At His Invitation | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

In a recent "Article of Merit" on his web site, wine critic Robert M. Parker, Jr. went on a tear against what he described as essentially one or many anti-consumer movements that fly in the face of what he believes is proper and right when it comes to the "truth" of quality wine. In this sweeping piece of highly-charged opinion, Parker manages to condemn the "natural wine movement," the "low alcohol wine movement," and a whole string of "obscure grape varieties." He ends his article with the following statement: "I desperately have tried to find merit in these movements, and would love to invite well-reasoned arguments that support them. The fundamentals of open and cordial discussion and debate are essential."
