2007er Muller-Catoir Breumel in den Mauern Riesling Grosses Gewächs: AKA, Irreparable Riesling Done Right

Wine isn’t always perfect. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s the risk you take when you buy it.

The inaugural post of a new website is always the hardest. So much to say on a blank slate and so many ways to begin. To make it short and sweet: we are here to pontificate on one of life’s greatest pleasures- wine. As delicately and deliberately as I plan, I can never predict what will happen and what will be written. Like uncorking a beautiful bottle of Mouton Rothschild, each sip, each swirl brings a host of surprises and senses to discover.

In vino veritas!
