Memorable Pairings

Remembering some unexpected but nonetheless excellent food-and-beverage pairings

Posted: January 20, 2010  By James Suckling

I remember some great food-and-wine matches in my life, such as a roasted chicken with slivers of black truffle between the skin and meat with a vanilla sauce and served with a Domaine des Comte Lafon Meursault at Lucas Carton restaurant in Paris in the mid-1990s. Or, just thinking this morning in my pajamas, I remember tiny roasted birds in the kitchen of Alain Ducasse in Monte Carlo in the early 1990s with a bottle of 1971 d'Yquem.

My Dream in Baja California

Discovering great new wines in this Mexican region and making it across the border with five cases

Posted: January 15, 2010  By James Suckling

It's hard to believe sometimes what some of us go through for an excellent bottle of wine.

My best friend from high school, my nephew and I drove down to Baja California, Mexico, over the weekend to pick up five cases of wine I bought there about 16 months ago. It was a wonderful pure Grenache made from 60-year-old vines in the main growing region of Los Valles de Baja California-Valle de Guadalupe. I bought a barrel of the stuff with three other friends, and we divided it up. The name of the wine is El Sueño-the dream.

I had been trying to figure out for months how to get my five cases of wine out of Mexico.
