2017 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti: A Day’s Work

The annual presentation of new releases from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in early March was the last tasting I attended before lockdown. Initially I thought I would publish this article as a bookend, when things returned to normal. Back then, I could have never imagined where we would be today. After reading Neal Martin’s article Complex, Not Complicated: 2017 DRC in Bottle chronicling the London edition, I decided to shamelessly rip off his format. So, here you have my version…

Via Forno is one of my local pizza joints. Despite the somber outlook, the staff at Via Forno has been upbeat the few times I have been there recently. I am looking forward to going back when things eventually come back to something resembling normalcy.

Vinous Favorites

2019 G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo Claré JC ($22.00) 92

2019 G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo Claré JC, 92 points

The 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo JC bridges the gap between Red and Rosé. A touch of whole clusters adds sweet and savory herbs to crushed raspberry and strawberry fruits. The finish is long and lightly structured, displaying a lasting and unmistakable note of red licorice with hints of spiced orange. (EG)

2001 Fritz Haag Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese #9

I rue the fact that I have not or rather cannot keep up with German Riesling. Anyone who doesn’t like German Riesling either doesn’t like wine or is no longer alive.
