What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Alimentaria Day 4

Cross your fingers, folks! Oh heck, cross your toes, too! We may get the wine of Marques de Murrieta back in the store. They broke up with their last importer and have been out of the West Coast market for almost a year now. Boy do I miss their products. I tried all of their new releases, and they were awesome. As soon as we work out the issues, I will let everybody know! D.O. overload…Spain has somewhere around 65 Denominacion de Origen defined regions. Ucles, one of their newest, was making their debut at Alimentaria. It was the first time that I have tried wines from Ucles, which is an area in Southern Spain. More big fat reds…we’ll see how it goes. Cultural note of the day: while in the States 2 out of 3 ain’t bad, apparently in Spain, it’s 4 out of 5. Well, at least according to one rather flirtatious taxi driver. Saludos! -Anne Pickett
