I’m in Germany, the Rheingau, to be exact. I’m supposedly on vacation, but the real reason I'm here is an invitation to a wonderful tasting of older Rheingau wines from every decade of the 20th century.
Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to taste every vintage of Nicolas Feuillatte's Cuvée Palmes d'Or. There were eight in all ranging from the recently released 1998 to the debut 1985. Presenting the vintages was Jean-Pierre Vincent, the only chef de cave at Feuillatte since the brand's creation by Nicolas Feuillatte in 1976.
I attended a Burgundy dinner the other night, at a private club, where about 60 wine lovers enjoyed two white and three red Burgundies ranging from village to grand cru. All the wines were delicious and showing well.
