I’d like to start this post by asking for help from people. How on God’s green earth do you cook an artichoke??? I popped it in the stew with the tomatoes, olive, and beef shin. 283 more words

2011 Henrik Möbitz Köpfle Pinot Noir tonight. What is more German than some brussel sprouts (Rosenkohl) and Spaetburgunder? And there will be some roast chicken and polenta with it. The wine itself is riper than I expected and lacks a little in the complexity department relative to the Enderle Moll from yesterday. Very spice and earth forward. Overall still interesting and worthwhile to drink.

2012 Enderle & Moll Pinot Noir Muschelkalk. Wow. This is really a dead ringer for Gevrey-Chambertin, that it is just incredible. Light and elegant but with intensity, cherry fruit and leafy earth. I can see the hype over this wine and like it a lot better than the less expensive Liaison. No-brainer purchase on future vintages. This is the wine that will fool most at a blind tasting.

A second week free of teaching, and it’s a rather refreshing change to have the time back to really dig into my studies. Normally by Wednesday I’m panicking that the week is over almost bar the teaching, but now it’s a mid point with plenty of time to work on other areas. 765 more words
Last year, when I was out in Italy, I started seeing lots of Franciacorta knocking around the local bars. Made up in Lombardy (the region of Milan), it’s a sparkling wine made in the same method as Champagne and Cava. 296 more words
On Friday night I popped down to Sainsbury’s in Camden to go pick up the food and wine for this weekend’s New Wine This Week. I have to admit I still haven’t done it as yesterday was the 17th of May and my Norwegian wife was in charge (it’s Norway’s national day). 155 more words
