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.

More Paris Recommendations 

Editor's Note: Our fearless leader, Clyde Beffa, left for VinExpo yesterday and is slowly winding his way toward Bordeaux to taste the 2008 vintage wines. He's sending updates on the restaurants and hotels he discovers along the way. If you're planning a trip to Paris, start here. Then, read Clyde's recommendations here, from his last big trip.

Ate lunch today at La Rotisserie d'en Face in the 6th Arrondissement. 2 rue Christine 75006 Paris. Tel. 01 43 26 40 98 Quite nice and not too pricey. Try their roast chicken with heavenly mashed potatoes. Email la-rotisserie@orange.fr

Tonight I head to Michelin-starred Restaurant Jacques Cagna across the street. Superb value. Only dinner where my wife, Kay, oders foie gras and I don't. We did the gourmet menu for 100 Euro (four courses, though they served six). All very good. The trotters were sans hooves, just calories wrapped with bacon. Great John Dory and excellent quenelles of bass. Wine: Good news, Daugenau for 40 Euros, bad news 2007 Serge Daugenau, fine. 1999 Poujeaux was heavenly, sweet and delicious. 14 rue des grands Augustins 75006 Paris. Tel. 01 43 26 49 39

Also, try Cafe Laurent  in the Hotel d'Aubusson. It's been there since 1690 and known for its Jazz club. Very American-friendly, fabulous location. A bit pricey but worth it. 33 rue Dauphine 75006 Paris. Tel 01 43 29 43 43. Email reservations@hotelaubusson.com
