In the cork poppin’, gut bustin’, merry makin’ issue #22 of Noble Rot magazine…we spotlight the wines of Catalonia and Jurançon, as well as Burgundy’s often under-appreciated Aligoté. more
From Els Jelepins and Pepe Raventos to Sylvain Pataille and the uber-cult Clos Joliette, we tell the stories behind some of Europe’s most exciting domaines. We meet the ‘hedonist in the cellar’, novelist and wine writer Jay McInerney. We travel to Épernay to taste a bottle of 1895 Pol Roger recently excavated from the site of the domaine’s historic 1900 cellar collapse, and ask how wines age.
