"Is it a flaw or is it the wine?" This is a question that I often think about. This is mostly because I am frequently accused of being too charitable toward wines that display any of a wide range of things that some winemakers and drinkers deem unacceptable.
I say restaurant beware! Most certainly I am not trying to set off an epidemic of returns-for-no-reason, not in the restaurant I work in, nor any other for that matter. What I am referring to is the dated and, frankly, rude policy of “buyer beware” when it comes to buying older wines on wine lists.
As 2007 has come to a close, I give pause to think about where I had some of my best meals of the year, and here they are in no particular order! Eleven Madison Park, New York I ate at Danny Meyer’s elegant Madison Square restaurant six or seven times.
In last week’s post , if you missed it, I let some arrows fly at Italy and its wine service. Today, I’m aiming closer to home. Let’s begin with France. Ah France! A country I love like no other. Nowhere do we see more of the most-beloved grapes reach their apogee than in this country.
