When I start talking about wine I will usually go off on which wine movies are the best and I'll even get pretty snobby about it. What? You didn't see Somm? I am now silently judging you on how little I think you know about wine. That sounds bad I know, but while I'm not a snob in that I'm judging you on what you drink, I am a little, but that you don't even care. At least in my crazy, down the rabbit hole obsession with wine.
Mondovino is the best wine documentary out there. There, I said it. If you have not seen that movie, then you are an amateur and we cannot be friends. You may redeem yourself if you have seen the French show La Sang de la Vigne. No? Dude, you're killing me. How about A Year in Burgundy? Those cellars those monks made! Seriously, if you haven't seen any of these movies, do yourself a favor and see them. Then we can hang out. Maybe.
So there's this lovely Chardonnay from Fableist wine that has an actual decree by Jupiter! People will do anything for a little press these days. Just kidding big Jup! Don't eat me. This wine is crisp as a slap in the face with ripe peaches, ricotta and graham cracks. Fableist aged this chard in new and neutral oak barriques and stainless steel. Bright fruit with just that subtle hint of butter. 13.9% alcohol means you can drink this with light proteins like ceviche, seafood paella, Margherita pizza or french fries. The saltiness will balance out the fruit. Trust me, do it. There is a price difference in the Outside Magazine article and price shown was for case pricing.
I have to find 2017s test and hit that tomorrow. But I was thinking about writing about something else. And the last thing I have to do today is verify the IBJJF membership thing. Damn, gotta go. Tomorrow!
