My 5 favorite wines.
The list changed this year, and I have a new “absolute” favorite. Yes, something replaced Veuve Clicquot Brut in the #1 spot, but probably only because I can’t afford to drink Veuve Clicquot everyday.
1. Georges Bertrand Picpoul de Pinet.
2. Veuve Clicquot Brut “Yellow Label”
3. Capay Valley Vineyards Viognier
4. Marques de Caceres Rose
5. Gruner Veltliner. Yeah, this one is a generic “I’ve discovered the grape”, but it warrants a notice, if only because of how I started drinking it. You see…..I read about it in a book. I was reading Zoe Archer’s Skies of Fire and Gruner Veltliner is mentioned. Then I was in the store and saw it and thought, “Why not?” One should always get one’s wine recommendations from steampunk.
