No missive this week as we spend some much needed time with our family this Christmas.
But today, Julien Miquel takes a look back at 2021 and our favorite wines of the year.
We sourced 24 wines... from the vast frontier of Argentina, the historic Northern California wine corridor, the breezy Tuscan hills, and the ancient vines of Spain... including a chianti from Castello Brolio, nearly 1000 years old, a gold medal rioja that flows through ancient tunnels, and even a Syrah from California that rivals any in southern France!
And we did it all despite batting an international shipping jam... what fun!
So what were our favorites? Enjoy the wines we fell in love with in 2021...
