I'll Drink to That: Alexandre and François Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan

I'll Drink to That: Alexandre and François Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
I'll Drink to That: Alexandre and François Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan. Episode 350 of I'll Drink to That! was released recently. It features Alexandre Thienpont of Vieux Château Certan in Pomerol, as well as his cousin François Thienpont of the wine trading firm Wings. Alexandre Thienpont is clearly someone who has thought closely about every aspect of his method, trying to refine every process, to tighten every screw along the way. This has been his mindset for decades now, having taken charge of Vieux Château Certan in 1985 with the explicit desire to make the wine better than the previous generations had. Alexandre has followed that desire with

Thanks to Lauren Michell Rabaino for the newspaper logo image.

Six years ago, when Tim Atkin's column in The Observer was slashed from 900 words to a few sentences, there was a brief but heartfelt outcry bewailing the demise of newspaper wine content. Since then, mainstream print media has continued a general decline (with a few exceptions).

A fabulous 40 year old Famille Hugel wine... | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
I had the good fortune to visit with Jean Hugel at his winery in Riquewihr with my family in September 1986. We tasted many of Hugel’s wines including his famous late harvest dessert wines, and this wine in particular. In 1986 it was superb, rich, unctuous, sweet and incredibly well balanced, and by Jean Hugel’s …

I'll Drink to That: Paul Grieco of Terroir. Episode 332 of I'll Drink to That! was released recently. It features Paul Grieco, Riesling impresario and proprietor of Terroir Wine Bar in Manhattan. Paul Grieco is often known for outlandish behavior, whether it be suggesting Lord Voldemort and other extreme baddies would be more chill if they drank a glass of Riesling, or championing the obscurest of obscure grape names, or for a personal wardrobe on the floor that ranges from camo shorts to zoot suits. But what this interview gets at is the personal Paul, underneath the layers of salesmanship. In this interview, which is a kind...

15 Vintages of Cos d'Estournel | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it

It’s not often I get to taste 15 vintages of the same wine. Actually — wait a minute — I’ve never tasted 15 vintages of the same wine at one time. Six or eight, sure, but never have I so thoroughly immersed myself into a specific producer’s wine.

12 Years of Wine Writing and (Who's) Counting?

12 Years of Wine Writing and (Who's) Counting? | Wine website, Wine magazine...What’s Hot Today on Wine Blogs? | Scoop.it
12 Years of Wine Writing and (Who's) Counting?. Welcome to my silk anniversary. As quietly as it usually does, the anniversary of beginning this blog slipped by last week without much fanfare. I've never understood the rationale for the traditional anniversary gifts except perhaps the first woody one, which originated from the custom of a husband carving a piece of furniture for his new bride as she moved into the home. But silk ain't a bad thing for a wine writer to be celebrating. I'm all for silky, as long as it's not accompanied by a lumberyard of new oak. Twelve years ago I was just a...
