Now that we solved tonight for you, another question you might have is: "What happened to Alice's annual email on the Dive and other winter tastings?"
The update on the voyage that took me to the Rhône, Jura, Burgundy, Paris, Loire, Beaujolais and Champagne is delayed.
Here are the excuses: I came home with a raging 103+ fever. So there went that week. Then I had the first draft due on the Georgian wine book. (Will be published in 2016). The newsletter needed to be written. What fell through the cracks was the note to you. Please forgive me. It will be delivered before the news seems stale.
Also THIS IS BIG NEWS! Please add March 25th to your calendars. It's our first ever TFL wine dinner.
Honored guest will be Burgundy vigneronne Claire Naudin. I've been beating the Claire drum for years. Love, love the wines. Love the human. She's wise, sensible, committed, opinionated and talented. You will be so happy to meet her and experience the fruits of her land. (Pascaline Lepeltier will be presiding over the bottles.)
Stay tuned for venue and more particulars.
