Of course there’s more to learn about wine. A tour through Burgundy alone could make you purse your lips and think, perhaps, this is all just too hard. But Epicurious.com’s Wine Lover’s Companion shows us that, well, it is… and that’s okay.
“Thirsting to know the difference between Riesling and Gewürztraminer?” From pleasant, concise, and friendly descriptions of a varietal’s history and flavor profile to exacting notes on virtually any word you’d come across in even the most stuffy of wine conversations, its entries are designed to help any level of wine drinker become (or at least feel like) the next Hugh Johnson, short of nothing of the accent and a blazer.
It’s the cheat sheet by which I live.
