As I am about to go to my first Return to Terroir tasting in the Big Apple, I took a few minutes to check what others around the globe got from the experience.
In September 2008, Wine in Sweden attended the Stockholm edition.
He deplored the cramped quarters.
Amongst those he favored were Chateau Ferran's offerings from Bordeaux and from Southern France, Cote Rotie La Mordonne 2001 (B-), and the Le Pavillon 2001 Ermitage Red (B) by Maison Chapoutier.
Earlier this February 2009, Alice Feiring was not a judge the tasting in Angers (France), just a wine tourist.
In Wine and Side Burn Trends (Veritas in Vino, February 18) she shares a few bistros and restaurants she tried while in town.
I will let you know in a day or so about my own likes and dislikes at the New York edition.
