NOVEMBER 28, 2010 A Whole New Problem Begins to take Shape
In the past few weeks I had the opportunity to drink 3 old Nebbiolo wines, all courtesy of my old pal Deetrane. These wines were fascinating, and they were incredibly delicious, even if in one case, only for a short window. Friends, I have a whole new problem now. I must have more, I absolutely must.

BROOKLYN GUY LOVES WINE Money isn't Everything
| THURSDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2010
Money isn't everything when it comes to Champagne. As with most great wines, there are fantastically expensive bottles and modestly priced bottles, and when thinking about the wines as a group, price does not necessarily indicate quality. I was reminded of this when thinking about two Champagnes that I had recently, one fantastically expensive and the other more modestly priced. MORE >>

BROOKLYN GUY LOVES WINE Foillard Fleurie
| TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2010
I love Jean Foillard's wines. There are many great Beaujolais wines, but if I were forced to choose only one to drink (and thank goodness I am not), I would choose Foillard's wines. And I say this without even having tasted only half of the wines he makes. The Morgon wines from Côte du Py and Corcelette I've drunk many times and based on these wines, Foillard makes my favorite wines from the Beaujolais. MORE >>
