Taking a bite.... Words on wine and food, plus cycling, music and other cultural phenomena.
It's snowing.I'm hibernating.Anyone care to guess what wine's on deck for tonight?
Fun with Photos,
Name That Wine
umm... is it red, or rouge, or rosso ?
You tell me, Bill. Test those memory banks. I do have reason to believe you've tried the wine that this cork belongs to (or at least one closely related to it) in the past.
Um, you're snowbound and only one wine? You can do better.
The sad part is you have matching wrapping paper.word ver: yotady, the philly version og hot toddy?
Don't you mean wallpaper, Tom? Got a great price and just couldn't pass it up. Looks really great in the wine cellar.
Wallpaper in a wine cellar? Must be an expansive space.
Tiny actually, Tom. In a constant state of take one out in order to put one in....Bill,Now we're getting somewhere. Care to be more specific?
My educated guess is that it's the 08 Mon Cher OR the 08 Gamay.Little more info here:http://www.cherriesandclay.com/2009/11/13/on-joe-dressner-and-noella-morantin/
Nice swings, anon... but strike one and two.
the menu pineau?what did you eat with it?
Nope, look again mate. That there cork's from a bottle of red wine. As for food, nothing that would give any clear clue. A zesty pasta dish with chicken meatballs on D1; pizza on D2. Worked just fine with both.
forgot about stain on the cork...how about cot?just google imaged noella. tres jolie!
okay, okay, it's Clos Roche Blanche Cot with a borrowed cork, or it could be the "la Boudinerie" cuvee (sample?). Hmmm
then it is the Côt from Noëlla Morantin
Well done, gentlemen. Bill and Hans, you're both correct. I should add that Jason Adams of Brooklyn, NY guessed correctly almost immediately, though he posted his answer on Fbook rather than here.And anon, I like your way of thinking and only wish Noella and or Joe D. were sending me samples!Notes and my own pic of the lovely Ms. Morantin coming soon....
And finally, the details have been revealed.
So, do I get a prize?
I'm sure I can rustle up something good, Jason, but you'll have to come to Philly to claim it.
