Whenever I feel like my wine selection has gone off the map I go back to a Côtes du Rhône. Really any CDR will do.
Whenever I feel like my perspective on wine has gone astray and I start using flowery descriptive words I go back to Billy Munnelly – my wine guru / sansei / Yoda.
Billy’s back with a fresh new web site and a great Facebook feed of wine recommendations and descriptions. His last recommendation that I acted on was the Chateau Hauchat Fronsac – a Bordeaux for under $15. I bought 6!
Check out Billy’s “Wine by Mood” – the cleverest thing ever written about wine.
Who is Billy? Billy is my favourite wine writer – funny, irreverent, slightly silly, and a man who appreciates a good glass of wine (although I suspect that it seldom stops at one glass).
