Arroyo Grande Pinot and the Tail of the Talleys

We tend to think of European wines as being “Old” and Californian wines as being “New”. Occasionally, of course, we crash this stereotype by writing stories about old legends from Napa that produced brilliant Cabernets in the 1960s and 1970s that are still delicious today. Today, though, we want to poke at this stereotype from a different angle: central coast Pinot Noir.

Pernot’s Bourgogne “Cote d’Or”: The World’s best Chardonnay value?

Pernod likes to make tense, pure Chardonnay. He uses little or no batonnage. There is little new oak, and none is used for the Bourgogne Blanc.
