Time is on your side…or should be
"So many factors make a wine great: soil, climate, light, water, vine maintenance, storage..and time.. The disciplines of great wine making were poured into me at a young age (gladly I must admit) by my father, a classically trained French Chef. Lesson One: Trust Time. The world's best wines are not rushed to market- but slowly brought along over years from those who have done it for generations. Then store and serve at a proper temp in the proper glass. The best wine selections, their names, labels, contents --speak with mouthfuls of layering, hints of terroir, balance. "Oui" , I prefer to sip in a foreign language. (California will always have the movies)"
