Shoot....just rinsed with Listerine and my tongue is burning. We don't believe in the flavoured Listerine - that stuff is just nasty. But the original burns like no tomorrow. Completely obliterates the palate.
Watched Mondovino again today. If you've never heard of it, download it, or get the dvd. You won't be disappointed. It looks at the players, the politics, the hypocrisy of wine, and really demonstrates that a lot of important people in the wine business are full of it. And it makes the Americans look like absolute donkeys, which is always enjoyable to watch.
The gentleman on the cover is Monsieur Hubert de Montille. A grand old man. Would love to meet him; better yet, would love to taste his domaine's wine. Want to talk a bit more about the movie. But that's for tomorrow.
