Here are some of the most captivating wines you will ever experience. Great Chardonnay terroirs, masterfully vinified, superb vintage. They are to be enjoyed young, old, and in between.

De Cherisey never chaptalizes, and in 2007 it was far from necessary anyway. You have about 13.5° alcohol, perfect acidity, and the clincher is the conspicuous expression of the domaine’s noble terroirs. Here, in this sector of the Côte de Beaune, is Chardonnay’s native soil, and de Cherisey is one of the rare masters.

It is now one year since my first seasonal food and wine Sampler. The response has been positive, and Kermit encourages me to keep them coming. My first edition was last October with a fall Sampler, but fall is such an ambiguous food season here. The calendar says October, but often the markets are still full of late summer foods. So I have waited until November this year.

When you open your Sampler you will find a few of my recipes—hope they give you some ideas for getting the most out of winter produce. Of course you’ll find some lovely wines in your Sampler as well, a fun mix of reds and whites to match with your holiday meals or just for relaxing by the logs of a fire.
