My Portland Press Herald column this week argues that everyone ought to know the basics and the classics. Classic doesn’t mean fusty, doesn’t mean obvious. It means tried-and-true but up-to-date. Traditional process. Particular grapes grown where they oughta be grown, with minimal intervention. Chardonnay from Chablis (and Mendocino!), white Bordeaux, clean/classic Pinot Noir (from northern Italy because Burgundy costs a lot), Nero D’Avola from Sicily. And more. But that’s a start.
