Valdobbiadene - heart and soul of Prosecco

It's hard to describe the steepness of these vineyards, and specifically of the fabled Cartizze vineyard, without seeing them firsthand. Le Colture, situated in Santo Stefano, owns about one and a half hectares in this spectacular vineyard which tops out at about 400 meters.

And the Chardonnay wins!

The last time I had a match made in heaven between Jura Chardonnay and roast chicken was in Vincelles, the home town of L'Aigle à Deux Têtes, and the chicken was real Bresse Chicken, a beautiful 2+kg bird roasted by none other than our host Henri Le Roy, amateur chef and vigneron de L'Aigle. This time, it was at home, the chicken was from Whole Foods, and the wine was the newly arrived 2013 Chardonnay (and Pinot Noir) from L'Aigle, but the taste experience was equally incredible. Kudos to all concerned (except me, I'm not much of a food photographer). That's my son Wil making a reappearance, who loved the pairing as well.

Re: Ella agrees - Lunatique is crazy good!!

A magnum of Lunatique a day keeps the doctor away!

What a cutie! :-)
