JULY 19, 2012 Emmanuel Houillon / Pierre Overnoy Dinner.
Dinner at Boulud Sud with the Arbois wines of Emmanuel Houillon / Pierre Overnoy. 2010 and 2009 Poulsard. The two vintages are quite different in character and this shows clearly in color. The 2010 was like drinking liquid roses. Both Chardonnays were excellent.
DR. VINO Why the Chinese are buying Bordeaux chateaus
| FRIDAY, JULY 20, 2012
The other day, when Jeeves brought me the New York Times’ “Great Homes and Destinations” section on a silver platter in my wood-paneled drawing room, I poured a spot of claret and settled into my leather wingback chair to catch up on what’s been going on.

A WINE STORY Day 9: Adventures in the South of France (language school)
| SATURDAY, JULY 14, 2012
Our day at school is broken up into several parts. typically we start with correcting our homework for two hours (it takes me a few hours a night just to do it!) and then we have a short break, a new lesson, and lunch followed by a "session practique" in which we learn things like etiquette in France. France is an extremely polite culture. There is also a script to the language. In LA and NY, when someone asks how things are going, it's automatic to say "great!" MORE >>
