Rajat Parr  Sandhi, Domaine de la Cote & Evening Land. The Sommeliers Atlas of Taste (Released October 23) Drinking @bibijisb Mind Behind the Wine @michaelminasf

Fred Savart has a beautiful touch with wine, making Champagnes of grace and purity from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown around the small villages of Écueil and Villers-aux-Noeuds. #Excerptsfromtheatlasoftaste 📷 @joe_woodhouse

Pure and precise, elegant and pristine. What else is there to say except that the monopole Clos des Ducs is one of the greatest vineyards in Burgundy? According to Guillaume d’Angerville, in 1507, when Clos des Ducs was inventoried for the brand-new kings of France (who, strangely, left it in the name of its former owners, the Dukes of Burgundy, instead of changing it, as was standard practice, to Clos du Roi), its size was measured at 52 ouvrées (2.15 hectares, 5.3 acres)—exactly its size today. It hasn’t changed in more than five hundred years. “It makes us feel very small,” he says. #ecerptsfromTheAtlasofTaste 📷 @joe_woodhouse

So excited to work with Mourvèdre from one of the Great (and Historic) Vineyards in California. Planted in 1922. @rajparrwineclub #organic

A working actor and writer, Jean-Marc Roulot has talents and interests beyond Meursault. Perhaps those inspirations help him improve the wine, though his commitment to his vineyards and cellar is never in question. His wines are Meursault’s most poetic and human. There’s a pureness and limpidity that gives them elemental status. All are excellent, but Roulot’s is the quintessentially great Bourgogne Blanc, and his collection of lieux dits are unmatched: Tessons
(Clos de Mon Plaisir), Tillets, Meix Chavaux, Vireuils, and Luchets. #excerptsfromtheatlasoftaste #theatlasoftaste 📷 @joe_woodhouse

@comandogviticultores wines are some of the most exciting wines made in Spain today, and perhaps just scratching the surface (or are at least carving out the high end) for the Sierra del Gredos. Into this remote and rugged land ventured college buddies @danilandi_viticultor & #fernandogarcia , looking for special plots of Grenache to create their brand, Comando G (after a Spanish name for the 1980’s Japanese television cartoon “Battle of the Planets”, the winemakers here see G as Grenache, and themselves as explorers of the deep reaches of Spain’s Grenache galaxy). #Excerptsfromtheatlasoftaste #theatlasoftaste 📷 @joe_woodhouse
