VARIATION WATCH

Constant variation is the life blood of the wine community. The basic styles of wine—red, white, sparkling, and fortified—have been around for centuries. What makes wine interesting is the constant striving for difference within these basic styles that is carried out by nature and our ability to harness it to produce something delicious.

How About a Wine Pairing Tonight?

How About a Wine Pairing Tonight?

Miguel de Leon, the wine director at Pinch Chinese in New York, first began pairing wines using the traditional French notion of what-grows-together-goes-together at Chez Panisse in 2005. But by 2009, working at the Momofuku group, where food wasn’t defined by one region much less one country, he began thinking about pairings as a way to “[maximize] deliciousness,” pairing off-dry sake with foie gras or a celery cocktail with stewed fruit for an ants-on-a-log experience. “Red wine with meat? Maybe. But it was more interesting to show something like Jura sous-voile instead of a well-trodden cab or pinot,” he says.

BEYOND BALANCE

BEYOND BALANCE

Most premium wines and even many budget wines are balanced. To say a wine is balanced doesn’t tell us much except that it was competently made. We need to distinguish balanced wines from wines that exhibit great harmony and integration.
