Die grootste vin santo -produsent van Toskane kanselleer 2014 -oesjaar

Wikimedia/McPig

Die produksie van vin santo in Italië sal in 2014 baie klein wees nadat 'n haelstorm een ​​van die grootste druiwe -oeste uitgewis het.

Die 'heilige wyn' van Italië het 'n daad van God ten prooi geval, want een van die top -wyn -santo -produsente in Toskane het gesê dat 'n haelstorm 'n groot deel van hierdie jaar se druiwe -aanbod uitgewis het.

Vin santo, of "heilige wyn", is 'n baie gewilde nageregwyn gemaak van gedroogde druiwe wat gewoonlik saam met gedroogde amandelskoekies geniet word om in die wyn te doop. Maar volgens The Local het Tenuta di Artimino, een van die grootste vin santo -produsente in Toskane, Donderdag gesê dat dit geen vin santo vir 2014 gaan produseer nie omdat 'n haelstorm op 29 September baie van die druiwe vernietig het voordat dit geoes kan word.

'Die oes was vanjaar ver van maklik,' het landgoedbestuurder Alessandro Matteoli gesê. "Ondanks die reënval en ander weersomstandighede, was die druiwe gesond. Maar ons het hierdie haelstorm gehad nadat die oes reeds begin het. Dit was 'n moeilike besluit om te neem, maar eerder as om kliënte wat die kwaliteit van ons produkte ken, teleur te stel. wyne, het ons besluit om hierdie jaar geen vin santo of Carmignano Riserva te produseer nie. ”


Wyn vir normale mense

Eerstens, dankie aan luisteraar en beskermheer Rafael C. vir die podcast -onderwerp hierdie week!

Dit is die 45ste herdenking van die oordeel van Parys: 'n proe van Kalifornië en Franse wyne, georganiseer, maar wyle Steve Spurrier, wat die deur oopgemaak het vir wyne uit die VSA en oor die hele nuwe wêreld om hul uitnemendheid te erken. Ons moet 'n glas na hom, sy vennoot, Patricia Gallagher, en aan die joernalis en skrywer George Taber, wat hierdie gebeurtenis so belangrik gemaak het, lig.

Hier is 'n vinnige opsomming, wat ons alles in die podcast behandel.

In 1976 wou 'n Engelse wynwinkeleienaar, Steven Spurrier, en die direkteur van sy aangrensende wynskool, Patricia Gallagher, lede van die Franse kulinêre elite aan die wyne van Kalifornië voorstel. Die doel was om hulle die nuwe verwikkelinge oor die hele wêreld met wyn te wys (en om publisiteit te kry vir Cave de la Madeleine en die Academie du Vin - geniale bemarking!).

Ter voorbereiding het Spurrier en Gallagher 6 boetiek-California Chardonnays en 6 boetieke op Cabernet Sauvignon-basis ondersoek. Hulle het hierdie wyne na Frankryk gebring en op 24 Mei 1976 het hulle 'n proe van drie uur gehou wat (sonder dat hulle dit weet) die wynwêreld vir ewig sou verander.

Nege Franse beoordelaars het in die Intercontinental Hotel in Parys gesit en 6 California Chardonnays saam met 'n groep van vier hoë -wit wit Bourgondië (100% Chardonnay) geniet. Hulle het dit gevolg met 6 California Cabernet Sauvignons en vier van die beste Bordeaux van die linkeroewer. Die uitslae was soos volg:

1973 Chateau Montelena, Napa Valley (familiebesit) 1973 Roulot Meursault Charmes, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1974 Chalone Vineyards, Santa Cruz Mountains (in besit van Diageo) 1973 Spring Mountain Vineyard, Napa Valley (in besit van 'n beleggingsmaatskappy) 1973 Joseph Drouhin Beaune? Clos des Mouches ,? Premier Cru Bourgogne 1972 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (in besit van Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson) 1973 Ramonet-Prudhon, Bâtard-Montrachet, Grand Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Domaine Leflaive, Puligny- Montrachet,? Les Pucelles ?, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Veedercrest Vineyards, Napa Valley (gesluit vir 20 jaar, herleef in 2005 onder 'n eenmansaak) 1972 David Bruce Winery, Santa Cruz Mountains (familiebesit)

1973 Stag? S Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley (in besit van Chateau Ste. Michelle/Antinori) 1970 Château Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux 1970 Château Haut-Brion, Graves, Bordeaux 1970 Château Montrose, St-Éstephe, Bordeaux 1971 Ridge Vineyards , Monte Bello, Santa Cruz Mountains (besit sedert 1987 deur 'n Japannese farmaseutiese onderneming) 1971 Château-Leoville-Las-Cases, St. Julien, Bordeaux 1971 Mayacamas Vineyards, Napa Valley (familiebesit) 1972 Clos du Val, Napa Valley (familie besit) 1970 Heitz Cellars, Martha's Vineyard, Napa Valley (besit van beleggers) 1969 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (besit van Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson)

Alhoewel dit skokkend en onverwags was, het die resultate gehelp om Kalifornië aan tafel te sit in die wêreld van ernstige wyn, en het die weg gebaan vir ander streke om aan te toon dat hulle ook uitstekende wyne kan maak.

Die 20-puntstelsel was te beperk (maar 20 punte was destyds standaard, ek dink enige skaal sou gekritiseer word)

Vir elke kategorie was daar slegs vier Franse wyne tot ses Kalifornië -wyne, so die kans was statisties in Kalifornië se guns (dit is 'n baie geldige argument, maar die doel van die proe was vir pret en leer, so ons kan nie regtig fouteer nie Spurrier omdat ek dit nie weet nie!)

Spurrier het nie die beste Franse oesjare gekies nie (Spurrier het Franse wyne gekies wat hy gedink het sou wen, dit was die beste beskikbaar)

Die Franse wyne was te jonk (die proe is herhaal en die Kaliforniese wyne het beter verouder as die Franse wyne!)

Blinde proe suig? (dit is baie waar, maar daar was geen 'gotcha' nie. Dit is net gedoen om die oordeel te verwyder, nie om mense te laat raai watter wyn Chateau is nie!)

Dit is redelik onregverdig om Franse wyn sonder kos te beoordeel. 'N Klein rol vir die reiniging van die verhemelte is nie genoeg nie. Met 'n ete sou die Franse wyne anders gewees het. Kos moet aan tafel wees vir 'n regverdige oordeel.

Die volgorde van die wyne in 'n proe is belangrik. Natuurlik lyk 'n ligter wyn wat na 'n swaarder probeer is, uitgespoel. Ek weet nie wat die saak hier was nie, maar die 'uit die hoed'? stelsel was waarskynlik nie die beste bestelling vir die wyne nie.

Ons moet besef dat 1976 'n baie moeilike tyd vir Frankryk was. Dit was nog steeds besig om te herbou na die trauma van twee wêreldoorloë in 'n baie vinnige agtereenvolging, en dit het jare geneem om te belê en die kelders te laat funksioneer en te moderniseer. Dit was waarskynlik in die oorgangstydperk, en dit beteken dat die wyne wat volgens tradisionele metodes vervaardig is, minder skoon gesmaak het? in vergelyking met die wyne van Kalifornië, wat baat gevind het by die nuutste tegnologie en wetenskaplike kennis, wat deel uitmaak van die kultuur van die wedergebore wynkultuur daar.

Dit gesê, ons moet almal 'n glas gelig vir Steve Spurrier, Patricia Gallagher en George Taber vir die hou/bedekking van hierdie geleentheid, wat wyn vir die moderne tyd verbeter en globaliseer!

Ek beveel die boek "Judgment of Paris" van George Taber sterk aan. Dit is 'n wonderlike leesstof!

Dit is die 45ste herdenking van die oordeel van Parys: 'n proe van Kalifornië en Franse wyne, georganiseer, maar wyle Steve Spurrier, wat die deur oopgemaak het vir wyne uit die VSA en oor die hele nuwe wêreld om hul uitnemendheid te erken. Ons moet 'n glas na hom, sy vennoot, Patricia Gallagher, en aan die joernalis en skrywer George Taber, wat hierdie gebeurtenis so belangrik gemaak het, lig.

Hier is 'n vinnige opsomming, wat ons alles in die podcast behandel.

In 1976 wou 'n Engelse wynwinkeleienaar, Steven Spurrier, en die direkteur van sy aangrensende wynskool, Patricia Gallagher, lede van die Franse kulinêre elite aan die wyne van Kalifornië voorstel. Die doel was om hulle die nuwe verwikkelinge oor die hele wêreld met wyn te wys (en om publisiteit te kry vir Cave de la Madeleine en die Academie du Vin - geniale bemarking!).

Ter voorbereiding het Spurrier en Gallagher 6 boetiek-California Chardonnays en 6 boetieke op Cabernet Sauvignon-basis ondersoek. Hulle het hierdie wyne na Frankryk gebring en op 24 Mei 1976 het hulle 'n proe van drie uur gehou wat (sonder dat hulle dit weet) die wynwêreld vir ewig sou verander.

Nege Franse beoordelaars het in die Intercontinental Hotel in Parys gesit en 6 California Chardonnays saam met 'n groep van vier hoë -wit wit Bourgondië (100% Chardonnay) geniet. Hulle het dit gevolg met 6 California Cabernet Sauvignons en vier van die beste Bordeaux van die linkeroewer. Die uitslae was soos volg:

1973 Chateau Montelena, Napa Valley (familiebesit) 1973 Roulot Meursault Charmes, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1974 Chalone Vineyards, Santa Cruz Mountains (in besit van Diageo) 1973 Spring Mountain Vineyard, Napa Valley (in besit van 'n beleggingsmaatskappy) 1973 Joseph Drouhin Beaune? Clos des Mouches ,? Premier Cru Bourgogne 1972 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (in besit van Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson) 1973 Ramonet-Prudhon, Bâtard-Montrachet, Grand Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Domaine Leflaive, Puligny- Montrachet,? Les Pucelles ?, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Veedercrest Vineyards, Napa Valley (gesluit vir 20 jaar, herleef in 2005 onder 'n eenmansaak) 1972 David Bruce Winery, Santa Cruz Mountains (familiebesit)

1973 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley (in besit van Chateau Ste. Michelle/Antinori) 1970 Château Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux 1970 Château Haut-Brion, Graves, Bordeaux 1970 Château Montrose, St-Éstephe, Bordeaux 1971 Ridge Vineyards , Monte Bello, Santa Cruz Mountains (besit sedert 1987 deur 'n Japannese farmaseutiese onderneming) 1971 Château-Leoville-Las-Cases, St. Julien, Bordeaux 1971 Mayacamas Vineyards, Napa Valley (familiebesit) 1972 Clos du Val, Napa Valley (familie besit) 1970 Heitz Cellars, Martha's Vineyard, Napa Valley (besit van beleggers) 1969 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (besit van Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson)

Alhoewel dit skokkend en onverwags was, het die resultate gehelp om Kalifornië aan tafel te sit in die wêreld van ernstige wyn en het dit die weg gebaan vir ander streke om aan te toon dat hulle ook uitstekende wyne kan maak.

Die 20-puntstelsel was te beperkend (maar 20 punte was destyds standaard, ek dink enige skaal sou gekritiseer word)

Vir elke kategorie was daar slegs vier Franse wyne tot ses Kalifornië -wyne, so die kans was statisties in Kalifornië se guns (dit is 'n baie geldige argument, maar die doel van die proe was vir pret en leer, so ons kan nie regtig fouteer nie Spurrier omdat ek dit nie weet nie!)

Spurrier het nie die beste Franse oesjare gekies nie (Spurrier het Franse wyne gekies wat hy gedink het sou wen, dit was die beste beskikbaar)

Die Franse wyne was te jonk (die proe is herhaal en die Kaliforniese wyne het beter verouder as die Franse wyne!)

Blinde proe suig? (dit is baie waar, maar daar was geen 'gotcha' nie. Dit is net gedoen om die oordeel te verwyder, nie om mense te laat raai watter wyn Chateau is nie!)

Dit is redelik onregverdig om Franse wyn sonder kos te beoordeel. 'N Klein rol vir die reiniging van die verhemelte is nie genoeg nie. Met 'n ete sou die Franse wyne anders gewees het. Kos moet aan tafel wees vir 'n regverdige oordeel.

Die volgorde van die wyne in 'n proe is belangrik. Natuurlik lyk 'n ligter wyn wat na 'n swaarder probeer is, uitgespoel. Ek weet nie wat die saak hier was nie, maar die 'uit die hoed'? stelsel was waarskynlik nie die beste bestelling vir die wyne nie.

Ons moet besef dat 1976 'n baie moeilike tyd vir Frankryk was. Dit is steeds besig om te herbou na die trauma van twee wêreldoorloë in 'n baie vinnige opeenvolging, en dit het jare geneem om te belê en die kelders te laat funksioneer en te moderniseer. Dit was waarskynlik in die oorgangstydperk, en dit beteken dat die wyne wat volgens tradisionele metodes gemaak is, dalk minder skoon gesmaak het? in vergelyking met die wyne van Kalifornië, wat baat gevind het by die nuutste tegnologie en wetenskaplike kennis, wat deel uitmaak van die kultuur van die wedergebore wynkultuur daar.

That said, we all must raise a glass to Steve Spurrier, Patricia Gallagher, and George Taber for holding/covering this event, which improved and globalized wine for the modern times!

I highly recommend George Taber?s book "Judgment of Paris" It?s a great read!

Wine for Normal People

First, thanks to listener and Patron Rafael C. for the podcast topic this week!

It is the 45th Anniversary of the Judgment of Paris: a tasting of California and French wines, organized but the late Steve Spurrier, that opened the door for wines from the US and all over the New World to be recognized for their excellence. We should raise a glass to him, his partner Patricia Gallagher, and to journalist and author George Taber, all of whom made this event so very significant.

Here's a quick recap, all of which we cover in the podcast.

In 1976, an English wine shop owner, Steven Spurrier, and the director of his adjacent wine school, Patricia Gallagher, wanted to introduce members of the French culinary elite to the wines of California. The goal was to show them the new developments happening across the world in wine (and to get publicity for Cave de la Madeleine and the Academie du Vin -- genius marketing!).

In preparation, Spurrier and Gallagher researched, tasted, and carefully selected 6 boutique California Chardonnays and 6 boutique Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines. They brought these wines to France and on May 24, 1976 conducted a three-hour tasting that (unbeknownst to them) would change the wine world forever.

Nine French judges sat at the Intercontinental Hotel in Paris and sipped 6 California Chardonnays with a group of four high end white Burgundies (100% Chardonnay). They followed that up with 6 California Cabernet Sauvignons and four of the best Bordeaux from the Left Bank. The results were as follows:

1973 Chateau Montelena, Napa Valley (family owned) 1973 Roulot Meursault Charmes, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1974 Chalone Vineyards, Santa Cruz Mountains (owned by Diageo) 1973 Spring Mountain Vineyard, Napa Valley (owned by an investment company) 1973 Joseph Drouhin Beaune ?Clos des Mouches,? Premier Cru Bourgogne 1972 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (owned by Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson) 1973 Ramonet-Prudhon, Bâtard-Montrachet, Grand Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Domaine Leflaive, Puligny- Montrachet, ?Les Pucelles?, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Veedercrest Vineyards, Napa Valley (shut down for 20 years, resurrected in 2005 under a sole proprietor) 1972 David Bruce Winery, Santa Cruz Mountains (family owned)

1973 Stag?s Leap Wine Cellars, Napa Valley (owned by Chateau Ste. Michelle/Antinori) 1970 Château Mouton-Rothschild, Pauillac, Bordeaux 1970 Château Haut-Brion, Graves, Bordeaux 1970 Château Montrose, St-Éstephe, Bordeaux 1971 Ridge Vineyards, Monte Bello, Santa Cruz Mountains (owned since 1987 by a Japanese pharmaceutical company) 1971 Château-Leoville-Las-Cases, St. Julien, Bordeaux 1971 Mayacamas Vineyards, Napa Valley (family owned) 1972 Clos du Val, Napa Valley (family owned) 1970 Heitz Cellars, Martha?s Vineyard, Napa Valley (investor owned) 1969 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (owned by Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson)

Shocking and unexpected though they were, the results helped land California a seat at the table in the world of serious wine and paved the way for other regions to show that they were also capable of making excellent wines.

The 20-point system was too limiting (but 20 points was standard at the time, I think any scale would have been criticized)

For each category there were only four French wines to six California wines, so the odds were statistically in California?s favor (this is a very valid argument but the purpose of the tasting was for fun and learning, so we can?t really fault Spurrier for not knowing!)

Spurrier didn?t choose the best French vintages (Spurrier picked French wines he thought would win, this was the best available)

The French wines were too young (the tasting has been replicated and the California wines have aged better than the French wines!)

Blind tastings suck ? (this is very true but there was no "gotcha" here. It was just done to remove judgment, not to make people guess what wine was what Chateau!)

It is quite unfair to judge French wine without food. A small roll for palate cleansing isn?t enough. With a meal, the French wines would have been different. Food must be at the table for a fair judgement.

The order of the wines in a tasting matters. Of course a lighter style wine tried after a heavier one will seem washed out. I don?t know what the case was here, but the ?out of the hat? system was probably not the best order for the wines.

We do need to realize that 1976 was a very difficult time for France. It was still rebuilding after the trauma of two World Wars in very quick succession and it took years to garner investment and get the wineries functioning and modernized. This was likely in the period of transition and that means the wines, made by traditional methods may have tasted less ?clean? in comparison to the wines of California, which benefitted from cutting edge technology and scientific know-how, which was part of the culture of the reborn wine culture there.

That said, we all must raise a glass to Steve Spurrier, Patricia Gallagher, and George Taber for holding/covering this event, which improved and globalized wine for the modern times!

1973 Chateau Montelena, Napa Valley (family owned) 1973 Roulot Meursault Charmes, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1974 Chalone Vineyards, Santa Cruz Mountains (owned by Diageo) 1973 Spring Mountain Vineyard, Napa Valley (owned by an investment company) 1973 Joseph Drouhin Beaune ?Clos des Mouches,? Premier Cru Bourgogne 1972 Freemark Abbey, Napa Valley (owned by Jackson Family Wines/Kendall-Jackson) 1973 Ramonet-Prudhon, Bâtard-Montrachet, Grand Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Domaine Leflaive, Puligny- Montrachet, ?Les Pucelles?, Premier Cru, Bourgogne 1972 Veedercrest Vineyards, Napa Valley (shut down for 20 years, resurrected in 2005 under a sole proprietor) 1972 David Bruce Winery, Santa Cruz Mountains (family owned)

Shocking and unexpected though they were, the results helped land California a seat at the table in the world of serious wine and paved the way for other regions to show that they were also capable of making excellent wines.

The 20-point system was too limiting (but 20 points was standard at the time, I think any scale would have been criticized)

For each category there were only four French wines to six California wines, so the odds were statistically in California?s favor (this is a very valid argument but the purpose of the tasting was for fun and learning, so we can?t really fault Spurrier for not knowing!)

Spurrier didn?t choose the best French vintages (Spurrier picked French wines he thought would win, this was the best available)

The French wines were too young (the tasting has been replicated and the California wines have aged better than the French wines!)

Blind tastings suck ? (this is very true but there was no "gotcha" here. It was just done to remove judgment, not to make people guess what wine was what Chateau!)

It is quite unfair to judge French wine without food. A small roll for palate cleansing isn?t enough. With a meal, the French wines would have been different. Food must be at the table for a fair judgement.

The order of the wines in a tasting matters. Of course a lighter style wine tried after a heavier one will seem washed out. I don?t know what the case was here, but the ?out of the hat? system was probably not the best order for the wines.

We do need to realize that 1976 was a very difficult time for France. It was still rebuilding after the trauma of two World Wars in very quick succession and it took years to garner investment and get the wineries functioning and modernized. This was likely in the period of transition and that means the wines, made by traditional methods may have tasted less ?clean? in comparison to the wines of California, which benefitted from cutting edge technology and scientific know-how, which was part of the culture of the reborn wine culture there.

That said, we all must raise a glass to Steve Spurrier, Patricia Gallagher, and George Taber for holding/covering this event, which improved and globalized wine for the modern times!

I highly recommend George Taber?s book "Judgment of Paris" It?s a great read!
