Finding Cool Sunshine: South Africa

Postponed several times due to matters beyond my control, thankfully the intermittently showstopping wines of South Africa were worth the wait, proving that the pandemic has not slowed down the momentum of the Cape.

Le Relais de Saulx, Beaune, France

Le Relais de Saulx served one of the best evening meals I had in Burgundy last year. I enjoyed its cozy and informal ambiance; it’s one of several recent additions to the Beaune restaurant scene that is refreshingly relaxed and unstuffy.

Vinous Favorites

2019 De Fermo Rosso Concrete ($25.00) 90

2019 De Fermo Rosso Concrete, 90 points

A fresh and vibrant Montepulciano, the 2019 Rosso shows pretty violets, wild strawberries and wet stone. Soft and fleshy in feel, yet energized by brilliant acidity, the 2019 tapers off with a twang of minerality. Enjoy it with a slight chill for maximum effect. (EG)

I remember quite well the first time I tasted the 2014 Santo Spirito Cuvée delle Vigne Niche Bianco. My eyes lit up the second I put my nose to the glass.
