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.

Talking Bordeaux

 

When looking for Bordeaux recommendations it's nice to be able to speak with someone who understands both the wines and the vintages.  Unfortunately, getting Robert Parker on the phone isn't the easiest thing in the world to do.  Never fear, however, because our own resident expert Ralph Sands is on the phone every week from Tuesday through Saturday (except for when he's in Bordeaux), talking Bordeaux with all those seeking council.  On Saturday morning Ralph was in the tasting bar, prepping for a big customer tasting that afternoon.  Listen to his tips about purchasing pre-arrival value in the 2009 vintage and then peruse his list of selections below!
