Bubbles, whites and reds from Cask & Moestue

Frost in northern France

Chardonnay, a beloved globetrotter

Is there any white wine grape that is more loved all over the world than chardonnay? It may have a natural explanation. It is a grape that fits everyone. It is easy to grow, easy to vinify and easy to like. It can be grown almost anywhere. It has its roots in Burgundy’s relatively cool […]

California challenges France. A duel of giants

Roberson Wine, an English wine company that also has an online store that even sells to Sweden, presented the challenge: France against California.

Pernand Vergelesses 2012 Premier Cru Iles des Vergelesses, Domaine Luc et Lise Pavelot | Britt’s Wine of the Month

Will Burgundy obtain yet another appellation? The Burgundians already have about 100 appellations, more than any other wine region in France. But this does not deter them. The new appellation now being discussed (again, for it discussed already four years ago) is Bourgogne Côte-d’Or. So far, it is the negociants that are the driving force […]
